Where to start? Ancient Rome, of course! Specifically the Colloseum, that ubiquitous symbol not only of the city of Rome but also of the entire ancient world.

|Facade with travertine blocks still attached|

The things that one sees while walking around the colloseum,
the surrounding buildings
the faux centurions,
the field of spring flowers surrounding a fallen column
can be so absorbing and entertaining that one forgets about actually going in to the colloseum....well that's for another day.
