Plato once remarked, “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” Such is the beauty of music.
No wonder we all love music and often look to it for solace, pleasure and relaxation, amidst the humdrum of life. If you are in Rome you will not be disappointed because, apart from the Vatican City and the Colosseum, the vibrant art and history, the Eternal City promises to be a paradise for lovers of music.
