Bernini is often associated with the magnificence of Baroque Rome - and so he should be. Pope Urban VIII is said to have told him "You are made for Rome and Rome is made for you".
Just like I wrote practically a mini love letter to Paris, I could also write one to Rome. These European cities are so beautiful, and it is helped completely by the way they are enshrined in literature, film and other forms of popular culture.
Rome wasn't built in a day, so the saying goes. The classical sits beside the modern, the Renaissance holds hands with the ancients; and who better to explore from the Renaissance than Michelangelo.
