Roman Forum

The Roman Forum, Rome

Forum Romanum or Roman Forum was the political and economical centre of the Roman Empire beginning in the 7th century BC. During the Imperial period it became mostly ceremonial monumentals until abandoned in the 4th century AD.

The importance of the Forum area is indicated by the presence within and clustered around it of many of the central political, religious and judicial buildings that comprise Rome yet today.



Cinque Terre

Here we see the same little harbor that we see below only we see it by night.

Each evening the local people come out to promenade and to have a little fruit of the vine -- wine -- and a little of the fruit of the sea -- fish.

Cinque Terre is recognitized as one of the most unique places, and one of the most beautiful in the world.

Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre represent one of the best preserved natural and semi-natural areas of the Mediterranean and is an Italian National Park.

Agriculture, especially wine growing has created a picturesque landscape of extensive stone walls clinging to the sides of steep mountains.

The crystal clear sea and extensive network of paths (one of the most enviable in the whole Mediterranean), make the Cinque Terre an increasingly sought after location among Italian and foreign tourists.

One goes here to spend a week, to unwind, to explore, and to experience a relaxed world.
