Thursday, Dec. 24 - the Old Forums, Repubblica, Cavour

Back to the same area, old Rome, this time took a bus to the Palazzo Venetia where the large Vittorio Emanuele Monument is.  Very impressive.

























This is an impressive monument, with the exploits of the general Trajan spiraliing up the column.



We hoped to use our 2-day tickets for  second look at the remains of the Roman temples, but found out the 2-day ticket only allowed us one entry to each of the three places.  Walked, found the Mamertime prison where Paul was jailed.  Still able to see much of the old forums:


































Statue of Julius Caesar and a wonderful poem.

Human statues.
