"See this pretty..." Rome Favorite Tip by drolkar

Rome General: 947 reviews and 1,142 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: See this pretty Romanesque-style church near the Colosseum, <font color=green><b>SANTA FRANCESCA ROMANA</font></b>, which is situated directly over a corner of the Hadrian-era <font color=green><b>Temple of Venus and Rome</font></b>. (One end of the ancient shrine was devoted to the Goddess Roma and the other to Venus, who was considered to be the ancestress of the Caesars in Roman mythology.)

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
