Colonna di Marco Aurelio Rome

The Colonna di Marco Aurelio in the light of the fading evening sun. It had been erected in the 2nd century AD to the honor of Emperor Marco Aurelio, and tells stories of his two wars. Since the 16th century a statue of the "Holy Paul" is on top of the column (before it was the Emperor himself).

Galleria Colonna Rome

The Galleria Colonna is situated directly opposite the Piazza Colonna. It has been reconstructed and re-opened in December 2003, containing a number of premium shops and restaurants today.

Fontana di Trevi Roma

This is the Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi), the most popular fountain in Rome. This place is usually packed with people, so watch out for pick-pockets and tourist traps! Also, please do not step into the fountain as this will cause immediate reaction by the local police who is keeping an eye on the fountain.

Trevi Fountain Rome

Detail of the Trevi Fountain. Here the belief was born that trowing a coin into the fountain across your left shoulder (while facing away) will bring you back to Rome again. And if you throw a second coin, you will be granted a wish. Well, if it would only be that easy... :-)

Palazzo del Quirinale Rome

A short walk up to the monte Quirinale concludes this walk. Here you will be able to admire another obelisk, which was moved over from the Mausoleo di Augusto in the 18th century.
