BC: The End

FC: May 2008 | Tour of Italy

2: The Spanish Steps

4: Trevi Fountain

5: Always crowded

6: The ancient Roman Forum

9: History everywhere, still impressive

10: Remains at Tiberius' home | Temple of Saturn

11: Commemorating his taking of Jerusalem | Arch of Titus, son of Vespasian

12: The Colosseum

13: Site of many Christian martyrs

14: The holes were due to the mining of brass, used for fittings in its construction by Romans after the colosseum closed.

15: Interior, under deck

16: a great tour guide...

17: One of the few of me in existence

18: Entrance 52, each entry numbered just like today's stadiums

19: the Pantheon in Rome

20: Vibrant street scenes everywhere

22: We took the trains nearly everywhere. They ranged from very nice, first class comfort and speed to older commuter trains. All felt safe and have a great reputation for being on-time.

23: Ah, Sorrento. This was spectacular.

26: Our hotel in Sorrento | gazing at the Isle of Capri

27: Coastline views were awesome | This is one of the places we would like to visit again

32: The Italian Riviera

34: Florence

36: weddings everywhere

37: Lido Island

38: St. Peters Square from inside the Vatican

40: from inside the Vatican

42: The Vatican interior. Never saw so many great marble statues. So common, but you never tire of wondering what happened to that art form.

43: Sometimes felt a little strange

44: another view from the Vatican

45: Looking back from down the street

46: This was built as the Circus Maximus for the Emperor Caligula. This was one of the great fountains and sculptures created by Domenico Bernini. It is an enchanting place to visit, watch, listen and absorb. Best at dusk and evening.

49: Our last evening in Rome
