I am visiting Rome and Venice. In Venice and Rome, there were a lot of things that made me surprised.
In venice, we use a water bus as a main transportation in Venice. In Milan, we used subways as a main transportation so that was a big difference. There were canals everywhere, and I could realize that this city is called "a lagoon city" by seeing the actual city.
In Rome, I had wanted to go to Rome since a long time ago. I was learning world history when I was a high school student, and especially I was very interested in the history of Rome. Visiting the smallest country in the world, the Vatican city, and one of the world's largest churches, San Pietro, was absolutely priceless. Also, words cannot tell how amazing seeing the real Colosseo was. When I thought that a person and a beast was actually fighting inside of this field, I could not help getting exciting. I used to learn deeply about the history of Rome, which made me realize once again that it was a great thing to have learnt. Without well-known knowledges, I am sure that the trip could not have been that good.
Both in Venice and Rome, there are a number of black people selling selfie sticks, luxurious bags, and toys like each 5 meters in streets. Also, there are some people who were wearing a costume and try to get money from tourists by taking pictures with them. They first said it is cheap or even free, and let tourists take a picture or buy something, and after that they drastically changed their attitudes and tried to make them pay money.
I was not that victim, but I learnt that we have to be very careful, and we should not trust strangers so easily because big cities can be not only a great place but also a dangerous place.
