Rome – Capitoline Hill!

IMG_0341 Roman Forum I

Dear Commons Community,

Elaine and I are visiting Rome.  Here are some photos from the Capitoline Hill, probably  the most famous of the seven hills.  Above is a view of the Forum (foreground) and the Pallatine Hill in the background.

Below are pieces from the Capitoline Museums that house a group of art and archeological museums in Piazza del Campidoglio, on top of the Capitoline Hill in Rome, Italy. The historic seats of the museums are Palazzo dei Conservatori and Palazzo Nuovo, facing on the central trapezoidal piazza in a plan conceived by Michelangelo Buonarroti in 1536 and executed over a period of more than 400 years.  

Wonderful architecture, sculpture, and views.
