Rome - Ancient City

Saturday, 24 September 2016

I'll finish the day with sights from the Roman era (mostly).

Across the street from the Bocca della Verita is a fountain and the Temple of Hercules Victorius.
Is this old Roman ruin a stable with rings for hitching horses and water bowls?
Trajan's Column (Colonna Traiana) and an unidentified Baroque era dome. Trajans's Column has a spiral of his exploits. The figure at the top of the column is St. Peter, which replaced Trajan in1587.
Another view of Trajan's Column with Trajan's Forum in the foreground.
Augustus' Forum (?)
Trajan's Market with Trajan's Forum in the foreground.
Trajan's Markets
We were here!
In the ancient area, but totally out of place is the early 20th Century Victor Emmanuel Monument. It looks like something the colonial British would have build in India, but it's all Italian!
