Remember in my last post I told you about my recent visit to Rome? Well, Missus took a number of photographs in which Yours Truly wasn't in the picture. Here's a few of them...
|The facade of the Pantheon.|
Next, some shots from inside the Vatican Museum...
|This is the 'Sphere within Sphere' by Arnaldo Pomodoro.|
|And here's a close-up.|
|The head from a statue of Caesar Augustus.|
|Looking up into one of the cupolas within the museum.|
|An extravagantly painted ceiling.|
|This elaborate ceiling stretches along the corridor of the Gallery of Maps.|
|Look at the magnificent detail!|
|The famous painting: 'School of Athens' by Raphael. Missus loves this work.|
|A little 'perspective'!|
Next, St. Peter's Square...
|This is the Square at twilight.|
|The cloisters surrounding the Square...|
|... and a view of St. Peter's Basilica from the Square.|
|On the way to the Basilica is the Bronze Door with one of the Swiss Guards on duty.|
|Inside St. Peter's Basilica.|
|The cathedral was massive and very booti-ful.|
|...the Colosseum by night.|
|This picture has Capitoline Hill in the distance.|
|And finally, Piazza Navona.|
That's all from Rome, but we stopped-off in another city afterwards. I'll tell you all about my time there later.
|For now, Happy Valentine's Day.|
