Way back in the dark ages of high school, the first Latin phrase we ever learned was "Caeculius est in foro", and whenever I am in Rome it is the first thing that springs to mind.
The forum is amazing, but there is so much else to see. Yesterday I wandered sound the Aventine Hill and then across to the Capitiline Hill above the forum, where this picture was taken.
I also managed to squeeze in the Capitiline Museums and the Pantheon - as stunningly simple and beautiful as ever - before repairing to the roof top bar of the Hotel Minerva, overlooking Bernini's little elephant, for a well deserved spritz at sunset.
A bit busy I know, but luckily Travel at Your Leisure's Amazing Amalfi tour starts tomorrow, so from then on things will move at a slower pace.
