The oculus in the dome of the Pantheon provides lots of natural light. The amount of thought and skill that went into building this is incredible.

The Forum. Ancient ruins!  This is where people got their shopping done centuries ago.

Trevi Fountain - the end of the line of "Aqua Virgo", an aqueduct constructed in 19 BC that brings water from the Salone Springs (approx 20km from Rome) to the fountains in the historic center of Rome. Fountains that are still used today to keep people hydrated!

Congrats to my sister Virginia and my new brother-in-law Chris! We had the amazing experience of celebrating their union in Rome. It was a beautiful ceremony and party, with time to explore the fabulous city. Looking forward to making another post with pics from the reception at Hotel Hassler, where we had the rooftop to ourselves to enjoy views of the whole city while we danced the night away.
