Roma, Italia Day X Tuesday November 15, 2011

Today we decided to take the double decker bus tour around the city.  It really gave me the layout of the all the main features of Rome.

And then we went to the Pantheon!  How amazing this building is! Built in 126 AD by Marcus Agrippa as a temple for all the Roman Gods. It is used as a Catholic church where mass is heard on Holy Days and for weddings.

Then we saw this:

Fontana dei Fiumi (Fountain of the Rivers) (1648-51) by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the centerpiece in Piazza Navona, signifying the four principal rivers.
It was an amazing Fountain.
