Wordless Wednesday... Piazza della Rotonda.

To continue our trip back to Italy, 
a short stop at the Pantheon and the Piazza della Rotanda in Rome.



The Pantheon...built by the emperor Hadrian about 126 AD.





The Piazza della Rotonda, the Pantheon on the left, viewed from our hotel.






The piazza and the fountain, topped by an Egyptian obelisk, at night.



...as always, for more Wordless Wednesday, 
check these out.

  14. I just love old European cities. The closest I've come to this one is a foam sculpture of the Pantheon that my son and I had to do for his history class a couple of years ago.
