In September of 2011 we stayed 5 days in Rome. We spent around two days taking photos in and around Vatican City and the rest of the time we went to some of the city´s highlights. The places that impressed me the most and where I took most of the pics were St Peter Square and Basilica, Vatican Museum, The St. Angelo Castle, Piaza Popolo, Piazza Novona, The Roman Forum and Colisium. It was amazing to realize that Rome was not only a center of a huge empire but also the hub of many cultures and a shaper of our western paradigms and social structures. Definitely it is a city of beauty and extremes, where the religious mixes with the memory of a bloody and glorious past.
