Rome I've been on that very street.. I bought a painting on the right hand side that is hanging in my home!!! Favorite Places, Architects Beautiful, Cities, Rome Italy, Romans Forum, Visit, Travel, Beautiful People, Rome Italy
Rome, the eternal city. Got to face the facts here: there are a ton of tourists. But there are so many nooks and crannies that it IS possible to escape the beaten path. Still, must return to the Roman Forum and the Colosseum. And Palatine Hill. And find the prison where Paul and Peter were rumored to be held. And St. Peter in Chains...
The Roman Forum, shown in the picture, was the center for public Roman life and a very important area for everyone during the Republic. It was the place of elections, public speeches, criminal trials, and even gladiatorial matches.
