Rome Part II

More Forum

Looking up at the Church above the Capitol Courtyard designed by Michelangelo.
We found a Gospel group singing in here.

View from the Michelangelo Steps

Barberini "Bees"-his trademark-he was a past Pope(when this church was built perhaps..)

Hand of "Colossus"

Romulus-the original I believe-thousands of years old-by the way, the Rome Police wear Romulus arm patches.

Not sure what the frame of cherubs means
Roman road through the Forum

All the Palatine was stripped from the exterior for new palaces being built. What's left are the holes.

Strange stuff going on outside-people in gladiator costumes shaking down tourists

This shows how the Colosseum was laid out with trap doors and a large wooden deck covered with sand.

Down below the stage-must have been a really scary place in its day

Ancient idol.

It's magic!

Selling postcards

Justice Building at the Forum
