Favorite thing: In many places throughout Rome you will see outward columns fused onto a modern constructions. The Teatro Marcello was once a miniature amphitheater near the river, and today looks somewhat like a smaller, filled-in Coliseum. Look for the arches from Rome's ancient and medieval past to see how they are kept alive by serving as modern foundations for today's architecture.
