This is the column of Marcus Aurelius.
On Thursday we did a tour called Rome Underground. We went to three different underground areas. The picture below is of a fresco wall from a Republican era Roman house. It was under a church.
Here's a nice picture of the Parthenon, one of the coolest attractions in Rome.I would post more pictures, but the internet connection at the hotel is painfully slow. I'll post a bunch when I get back home.
