Back from the Eternal City

This is my favorite photo from my trip to Rome - just outside the Pantheon's porch, at twilight. The pedestrian walkways are beautifully lit, and everything seems enchanted. I have food photos to share, of course, in upcoming posts. For now, here are some highlights from the trip.

Laocoon at the Vatican Museum.

Bernini's fountain at Piazza Navona.

The Diocletian Baths were huge!

Although the Belvedere torso and Laocoon were impressive, my favorite sculpture at the Vatican
was this little guy in the Egyptian section. He's saying, "Okay, okay, I've dropped my weapon!"

One of the many macabre shrines we saw in churches. This is in Santa Prassede.
