Si on veut s'immerser dans la vie des romains, cet endroit est approprié puisque c'est dans un édifice très vieux mais qui a beaucoup de charme.

... ve ever seen. We continued along the route which finally comes out in the Sistine Chapel. I’ve got to say this was a little disappointing, it was rammed full of people talking at the top of their voices. You’re not allowed to take any photos in here so we lingered a while taking it all in and then left. It felt quite underwhelming, the ceiling is stunning but it is quite a high ceiling and the detail is difficult to see. I didn’t even spot ...

Ha, I don't know if it was the best solution but it was certainly interesting. So next thing we know we were driving through the city of Rome. I mean OMG, we drove past the Capitol museum with its mighty statues, and then past The Roman Forum and another five or so ...
... the church they have a fountain. On the fountain it reads ANTONIVS MVNOZ ROMANVS ME FECIT. Which says that Antonuvs Mvnoz who is a Roman made me. As if the fountain could speak. It was a really interesting way of putting your name on your work. Doing this is called improprio persona. The inside was different from the rest of the churches that we have seen. It was built in a rococo late baroque style. The walls were white and there was a lot of ...
