Of all towns, the Eternal City is also the most scenic. Roaming about Rome will amaze you for the countless piazzas, fountains, masterpieces, elegant palazzi, modern and ancient Roman monuments, more churches than you could imagine, for the chic streets and tiny yet picturesque alleys, for the character and art you'll find everywhere.
Also from any dome, or from any of its hills, the majestic beauty of
Rome appears. The view from the Janiculum hill is the most impressive.
According to De Brosses, an 18th century French diarist, it was sufficient in itself to
justify the journey to Italy. The most striking feature is the forest of domes and
monuments filling the skyline, silhouetted against the Alban Hills (Castelli Romani).
The view of the Roman Forum is also fascinating. This panoramic photo was taken from Capitol Hill. The palace immediately to the right is Rome's Municipality since antiquity. Today it hosts the Municipality and the Mayor's office. From left to right you can see the Torre Spaccata (the broken tower), the church built on top of St. Peter's jail (Mamertino), the arch of Septimius Severus, the Curia or Roman Senate (behind it), the Sacred Way (where tourists are walking), the Temple of Saturn (with its high columns, it was the seat of the Roman State Treasury). At its right you can see the remains of the Basilica Julia. The hill to the right is the Palatine, and in the background you can see the silhouette of the Coliseum.
ST. PETER and THE VATICAN
The realm of geometry, harmony, elegance, and space, St. Peter reminds visitors the great mission it represents with its limpid shapes and awesome dimension.
