Day 3 - Thursday - Forum Romanum, Palatine Hill and museum.
By metro to the Colosseo stop, and over the road to the Forum.
The Arch of Titus -
|Much the same in Roman times, bar the cameras and backpacks!|
|The glorious scent of rosemary and other herbs.|
|Modern workers among the ruins|
|Inside the Temple of Romulus, described as probably dedicated to Romulus, son of Maxentius.|
|Goddess of the sewers?|
|The belly button of Rome|
|Lovely blue flowers|
One thing missing from the forum was a cafe! Oh to be transported back to Ancient Rome for a few minutes.
The Palatine Museum was well worth a wander, with its many statues and exhibits. The remains of the palaces with their views over the Circus Maximus are striking and memorable - and then there were the lizards and a swallowtail butterfly.
Too much to take in at one go . . .
