I would love to visit Rome
I've never been anywhere in Spain, but Rome is an awful city. It's just like San Francisco with older landmarks, poor public transportation, and somehow even worse traffic.
It does, but so does SF. Both are full of trash and people peeing in the street. And stray animals everywhere. When I stayed in Rome, we actually had guards with guns that patrolled the hotel entrance.
If you really want to go to an Italian tourist trap, go to Florence. The historical district is beautiful and easy to navigate.
I've heard that the rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain.
It's a reference from a very good movie called "My Fair Lady"
