Assunto:  Re: To know a place
 
Mensagem:  "I want to know Rome (or etc)" is an odd sounding construction that would probably not be used by a native speaker. More likely and natural sounding is: "I want to get to know.....etc" or "I want to know (x) better" or "I want to really know...." 'Know' has to be modified in some way when used in this fashion.
