Return to Roma

Roman Monuments

These links are to pictures taken on holiday in April 2007 and October 2008 and are beginning to replace those taken ten year earlier. Even though illustrations from the literature would be better, they are used to show the ruins of most interest to the visitor and likely to be accessible to the photographer. There still are sights to see, however, including the Porta Praenestina and the Praetoria barracks.
