I sniped this picture from the top of the Spanish steps
coat of arms in Piazza Novana by the obelisk (Roman, not Egyptian – tour guide made that point)
Neptune being a boss close up
Neptune, Trevi Fountain
good thing we got the fountain in it
first seeing the Trevi Fountain!
camera zoom is amazing
Hadrian’s column 98 meters
in the Pantheon church
The roof of the Pantheon – the hole is open, so when it rains, the floor gets wet. There are drains in the floor and that section is roped off on the ground, but it could start raining in the church during mass
One of the many frescoes in the Pantheon’s Church
The Church curves, so this is the panoramic view
Did you know the Pantheon became a Church?
some ancient bath house columns
Some important baroque-style building in Piazza Navona
Piazza Navona. See anything unusual?
Fountain in Piazza Navona, “Originally built as a stadium in the first century for athletic contests and chariot races, Piazza Navona is lined with luxurious cafes and Baroque palaces and is the home to three lavish fountains. It was laid out in the 15th century on the ruins of the stadium. From 1650 to the late 19th century the square was sometimes flooded in summer and used for aquatic games and staged naval battles. The square still retains its oval shape. The obelisk at the far end of the picture came from Egypt and was originally in the Circus of Maxentius but later moved to Piazza Navona.” http://goitaly.about.com/od/romeitaly/ss/piazzanavona.htm
