Church in Rome

I actually don't remember this church at all. Isn't that terrible, but I must say it looks awesome in the pictures. There are churches everywhere so I guess they all started running together after a while. I wish I knew more Catholic history, it would have helped me understand alot of the paintings and symbolism.Rome Italy

Rome - our walk continued

As you can see from the last few postings that first day we literally just walked around Rome learning about Rome. There is stuff to look at everywhere. We saw so many different things it would be impossible to remember it all. All of these shots were taken of the Roman Forum. These are some stairs near the Roman Forum.Roman Forum Rome Italy
