This is the first pcture I took as I exited the metro for the 1st time in the city, I was so excited i just had to shoot something.
People people everywhere. At the end of the street you see the Spanish Steps, a popular meeting spot for both locals and tourists alike.
Here is just a fun one of Mimi standing in Piazza di Spagna in a light rain, when it rains this city really starts to feel less crowded because everyone runs for cover. We didn't run.
Learning to move around the city like Romans do.
Part of me was tired of all the people here, but now looking at this photo, the people give a good reference for just how giant this place really is.
One of the few moments where I was able to catch without my frame being full of tour groups.
There is a plaque at the base of this cross that reads: "The amphitheater, one consecrated to triumphs, entertainments, and the impious worship of pagan gods, is now dedicated to the sufferings of the martyrs purified from impious superstitions."
A monument built in the 1st century commemorating Titus' victories. This arch also served as the inspiration of many other triumphal arches.
Located on Palatine Hill.
Some of these structures date back to the 7th century BC. A lot of the magic of this place is killed by the throngs of people visiting, I often wondered if some of the other visitors even cared about the history and what this place represents in terms of the history of mankind
Here we see the Arch of Septimius Severus, with the church Santi Luca e Martina in the background.
This man was just relaxing in the sun in Piazza di S. Slivestro. Like so many other Romans, he is taking advantage of the beautiful public spaces the city has to offer.
This is the best way to get around the city, scooters rule the roads of Rome.
Truly and amazing structure, nothing can prepare you for walking up to this building and entering the massive front doors.
