Last few photos from Rome, taken on any of our epic walks through the city. Last of the Rome posts, I promise.
Above is the monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, first king of a unified Italy. The first few times I glimpsed it were always from a hill, so I had the false impression that the monument only consisted of the top colonnaded part. Oh how wrong I was.
Passing along the old Appian Way on our way to one of the catacombs. This was one of the earliest Roman roads built out of the city.
A very vintage vespa.
Sunday market shopping. In Rome I also managed to see a Frida Kahlo exhibition, the first time I had actually seen any of her paintings. I’m a big fan, and mildly inspired to start drawing a little myself (which would be the first artistic endeavor since high school, unless you count the colour pencil scribbles done while teaching/babysitting. And I wouldn’t)
SPQR seen on a notice board. It stands for Senātus Populusque Rōmānus, or The Senate and People of Rome. So historic, so full of knowledge.
So many lemons!
Tea in a coffee shop.
