Thanks! Yeah I explored the city a bit more thoroughly this time, although I still missed loads of interesting things like for instance the Mithraeums and some of the more distant Churches (especially Sant' Agnese Fuori Le Mura).

It has gone through a massive wave of gentrification over the last two or three decades but it is not generally the place where the upper classes live. Too busy and crowded.

So is the centre a still densely populated area? Or is it becoming like many other Mediterranean city with mostly holiday-rentals?

51. Piazza della Minerva and Bernini's Elephant and Obelisk.



52. Another walled lane.

73. Trajan's Column.



74. Circus Maximus. An imense space. If Ben Hurs famous chariot race scene is anything to go by, I bet that chariot races were an incredible experience. Certainly something I'd like to see.
