The eternal city

I got a chance to visit Rome for a good couple of hours during a working trip to Sardegna last month. Thought I'd share a couple of pics.

A compulsory pic of the Colosseum. It was a weekday and maybe 11pm, but the site was still quite crowded, especially by american youths.

I couldn't get into the old Roman center so I looked at it over the fence. Forum Romanum, the center of power for the Roman empire, is somewhere in the back.

The statue is new, but I thought I got a good composition for this. The Moon, Saturn and Spica shine in the sky close to each other. Portentous!

Fontana di Trevi. Only after my trip I heard you're supposed to toss a coin in to ensure you visit the citta eterna again.
