Photo Tour: Jerry Peek's Random Rome Photos

Maybe you've already seen my other Rome photos. I've had various photographs sitting on my computer for a month now, with no time to make them into a web page. So here they are, in a long row, without many details (for now, at least). I hope you enjoy them anyway!

You can click on any photo to open it in a new window. After you close that window, you should be back at this page.

Outside the Colosseum These guys outside the Colosseo (Colosseum) didn't seem too authentic...
Church on Via dei Pianellari This church is what drew me to walk down Via dei Pianellari (where I then found Condognotto's shop, shown in my first set of photos)
Stone lion guards a gate This stone lion, plastered into a corner where two walls meet, seemed to be guarding this gated entrance from his (her?) tiny street.
Phone booths near the Tevere This glass structure near the Tevere (Tiber) River looked more like a spaceship than phone booths to me.
Inside St. Peter's Looking up (at them looking down), inside San Pietro (St. Peter's)
at Terme di Diocleziano If you're passing through Roma on the train and you've got just a couple of hours, check your luggage at the train station. Walk across the piazza in front of the station and cross the street to the Terme di Diocleziano (Emperor Diocletian's baths) and Palazzo Massimo alle Terme, a building housing a beautiful new art museum. If you don't have time to go inside, look through the grounds, which are free to enter; they're full of sculpture, grave markers and other ancient inscriptions. Here's one of them (outside in a shady corner; sorry that my camera couldn't focus better there).

That's all from Roma. Grazie and ciao!
