  The Vestal Virgins
by paulapes

Favorite thing: There are so many fantastic places in Rome to see, but if I had to choose only one, I would say the Roman Forum. Walking in the Forum, among the ruins of ancient temples....it's just amazing. It was extremely moving and I'm sure I'll never forget it.

Here is a photo of some of the Vestal Virgins, which are located in (surprise!) the House of the Vestal Virgins. The virgins attended the flame of Vesta and if they broke their vows, they were buried alive! (If you look very closely at the lower left side of the picture, you can see one of the Forum cats curled up against the wall.)

Fondest memory: I miss everything-the antiquity, the people, the crazy traffic, the jumble of buildings here, there, and everywhere! I just loved Rome, period! (oh, and those funny little 3-wheel cars) ----------------
