Rome – Chapter II

The Emperor Augustus claimed to have found Rome a city of bricks and left it a city of marble. Alas, most of the marble has been stolen over the centuries. But a few magnificient monuments remain. Here are a few examples. Although I’ve been to Rome a few times, last weekend was the first time that I had the opportunity to visit the ancient part of the city. I think that the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina with a church built into it is particularly impressive.
