When In Rome

Do as the Romans do.  So that of course involves visiting the Pantheon, Forum, Colosseum, and many beautiful Renaissance and Baroque churches.  So like I’ve been doing for the other cities, here in photographs are the sights from my first day and a half in Rome.  The Vatican is next!

The Pantheon is one of the finest buildings I have ever stepped foot.  The Colosseum is both an architectural and engineering feat that goes unmatched for its era.  And the churches, while small offer some of the finest craftsmanship.
