The Eternal City


Rome is such a beautiful city! I like how they preserve their cultures and buildings. They cannot simply dig around because once you dig a deep hole almost anywhere here, and you’ll unearth an archaeological artifact, or two. It’s like an untapped underground museum! It’s a city under a city! How cool is that? 🙂

While I was touring Rome, I had to take these lovely photos! Beautiful ruins! 🙂

Today you can’t move a shovelful of dirt without it being examined. Until now more archaeological finds come to light…

The Colosseum originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre is an elliptical ampitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire It is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman Engineering. If you have notice, this is the back view of the Colosseum.. for a change! 🙂

Just outside the Colosseum is the Arch of Constantine (Arco di Costantino), a monument built in AD315 to mark the victory of Constantine over Maxentius at Pons Milvius.

Tourists pose for a photo op with the Roman guards. Just pay them 10 Euros. Will post mine next time. haha! :p
