Rome - Stories of old

  • The river of belief

    St Peter's Basilica with the river Tiber

  • Divine view

    The view from St Peter's Basilica where Anita Ekberg once lost her hat to the wind in Fellini's La Dolce Vita is simply spectacular.

    The Vatican

  • Bridge of angels

    This bridge was constructed between 134-139 and once used by pilgrims to reach St Peter's Basilica.

    Ponte Sant Angelo

  • Tiber crossing

    Isola Tiberina is a small island in the Tiber, similar to Île de la Cité in Paris. As such it was a convenient place for bridging the Tiber and Ponte Fabrico is the oldest surviving bridge in Rome, built in 62 B.C.

  • Larger than life

    The colossal statue of Constantine is down to bits and pieces these days, stuffed away in the outdoor courtyard.
