It is a museum, but there's nothing wrong with that. Although I do think Rome could do with some contemporary stuff in its centre. The lifestyle, however, is great.

32. Santa Cecilia in Trastevere. 1725 facade with the 12th century belltower.



33. Isola Tiberina. According to legend it was formed when the angry Romans threw the hated tyrants Tarquinius Superbus' body into the Tiber. It settled onto the bottom where dirt and silt accumulated around it and eventually formed Tiber Island. Lovely.

35. Pons Aemilius or Ponte Rotto (Broken bridge) is an old Roman bridge dating from the 142 BC. There used to be more of it but floods and then demolition had taken their toll.

36. Temple of Portunus 1st century BC.



37. The House of Crescentius - a 10th century tower house decorated with various Roman fragments.

38. Some more ruins.



39. Theatre of Marcellus. Originally built in 13 BC but then over the centuries it became a private residence. Nowdays it's an apartment complex.



40. Santa Maria in Cosmedin 8th century.

I've not been to Rome, but definitely like the look of it. I'm wondering where do the city's rich and famous live? What are the suburbs like?

Suburbs are mostly 8-10 storey blocks, so I'd guess the great and the good live in city centre or somewhere outside the city.

I'm always at awe every time I see photos of Rome.
I visited this eternal city for 4 -5 days and it was a great experience but of course it's not enough to really know the city.

46. Santo Stefano Rotondo built in 470. The interior is decorated with some very gruesome frescoes depicting torture and execution. I've never seen anything quite like it. Under the church there is a 2nd-century mithraeum.



47. San Gregorio Magno al Celio.



48.



49.

Really great photos!
Happy to see you didn't miss the Aventine and Caelian hills. They are two of the most charming spots in the city imho, still so many people completely ignore them.
Better luck next time with the weather (yes, actually Rome is a quite rainy city, but shhh... don't say it out loud!).

In Northern Rome, mostly. Neighborhoods such as Prati, Parioli and Vigna Clara.

Take a look at this thread for an hint of how Rome looks like outside the city centre.
