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

Rome General: 938 reviews and 1,081 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.)
