"Vestal Virgins were here long before Kilroy." Roman Forum - Temple of the Vesta - Vestal Virgins Tip by skywalkerbeth

  Someone is still tending the flowers for them
by skywalkerbeth

This was my second visit to Rome and while I spent more time in the Forum than last time, it still is not nearly enough. I bought a special book for the journey which I did carry with me, but, I find I must go back again. Too bad!

The story of the Vestal Virgins I found fascinating. The closest thing to feminism for centuries I suspect. Apart from burying them alive if they strayed, that is.

Directions: near the Colosseum. It's the Forum! another thing I am sure everyone can find without even trying.
