Even if your visit to Rome is limited by time, there's one place you must see – the Forum.
It's a vast area, but before you weave your way through the columns, get your bearings from the Capitoline Hill – it's from here that I took the photo for today's post.
From the viewpoint you descend towards San Pietro in Vincoli (St Peter in Chains). The church was built in the 5th century to honour the relic of the chains that bound St Peter. The church also houses Michelangelo’s Moses. Though considered a small piece (just under eight foot tall), photographs indicate that it impresses for other reasons. It’s actually part of a much larger work, created as a tomb for Pope Julius II.
