  5. Kind of have to wonder just what the Swiss are guarding... St Peter's architecture is beautiful and so ornate.

  12. Rome is such a beautiful city. That shot of Trevi Fountain makes it look so much larger than it is. I was shocked to find it on a tiny street! And just love the glow of the night shots.

  15. I was in Rome five years ago, my first time leaving the country, and have such fond memories of that trip! Trevi Fountain is one of my favorite spots on Earth... so gorgeous. Thanks for the pick-me-up on a dreary day!

  17. Great photo of the Swiss Guard in full ceremonial uniform with halberd and sword. Although they are trained in the use of firearms, it's great to see an "army" using 16th century weapons.

  21. Wonderful shots as always. The Swiss guard look completely clownish however. It would be hard to take them seriously.

  22. OH Rome, I think I could lose myself, and maybe find myself again on the streets of Rome-- and I'd sure like the opportunity to find out, ya know? =) Beautiful post.
