... sarcophagus to others that I have seen that were designed by Romans, the Roman ones are much more elaborate.

We made our way by scary taxi (speeding through the streets nearly hitting pedestrians - very much like a real life video game) to Domus Romane di Palazzo Valentini for a tour of ancient ruins archeologists had unearthed in the last several years. While waiting for the tour we found the cheapest cafe in ...
