Rome is like a dream come true. Whether you’ve never been or are dying to return, here’s a look at 10 Instagram accounts that depict the Eternal City it all its gloriousness.
Rome sweet Rome…there’s really no place like it. We can wax poetic about the Eternal City for as long as we want, but the fact remains: You really have to see Rome to believe Rome.
If you haven’t seen the Italian capital for yourself, you might have seen it in the movies or in editorial spreads, and you could understand how it would be hard to argue with anyone who ever called it the city of one’s dreams. If one dreamt up the most glorious city in the world, it would probably be Rome. If you’ve been, you most likely dream of returning and if you haven’t been, you probably dream of visiting.
So, without further ado, here–in no particular order–are 10 Instagram accounts that will give you a Rome fix.

Since Rome is just so gorgeous, we couldn’t resist including a collective account. This Instagram feed shares a selection of photos that were tagged #ig_rome. It’s nice because you get to see Rome from a variety of different perspectives.
