Around Ancient Rome

Our 1st full day in Rome involved a personally guided tour for our F.A.B. group around the older parts of Rome in the morning. Taking in…

  • The Aventine Keyhole (AKA Secret Hole) – a large door in a wall which, when you look through the key-hole you can see St Peter’s Cathedral. Pretty cool – check out the photo below.
  • Circus Maximus is an ancient Roman chariotracing stadium and mass entertainment venue which was the first and largest stadium in ancient Rome and its later Empire. A concert venue these days for Rolling Stones, U2 etc.
  • Pyramid of Cestius; the only “Egyptian” pyramid in Europe and the legendary tomb of Remus
  • Several cathedrals whose name I forget, but were absolutely stunning.
