so bad
I was for the first time in Rom. I went here by train -  the whole night from Milano/Milan just for the one-day-visit in the eternal city. Then - after having made such beautiful and great experiences i rode the other entire night to Milano back - to my friends where i left my big luggage, going down to the south only with my small backpack. The metro in Rom has still only 2 lines. It's dirty, smelly and grows very slowly, but - it is still my fave transportation mean! :D:D:D But as the matter of fact, it's probably the most covered with graffiti metro i've ever saw! It is really THAT bad. The Italian have bought some new trains for Rom's Metropolitana lately, but i am scared to look at them now, they can be covered with those almost graffiti as well.
I don't like this my blog entry, cuz i have complained here all the time - especially about Rom, which is sad since i love this city, i like Italy in general as well. Every time i'm traveling there - i stop for a while to be at least few hours in the eternal city.

... few years later (2008)

My next visit in Metropolitana di Roma and the whole line A is running on new trains, but the stations look the same ugly and depressive (so sorry RJ) there is though still hope for the brand new line C, which is in contruction since few years and should be partly opened very soon. Let's pray for the better designed stations for ROMA!!!!

Hahaha... i think they are refurbishing now some stations... but it's really very bad all those pseudo-graffiti. Italy is such a beautiful country but with the writings on buildings and trash everywhere they lose a lot!
