After attending a conference in Tunisia, Ron and I stopped off in Rome for several days.

We started off by climbing up the massive monument to Vittorio Emmanuel II
(the first King of Modern-day Italy).

We then walked over to the coliseum so that we could compare it to the one we visited the day before in Tunisia.

The next day we toured the Vatican and St. Peter's.

Here is one of the many Egyptian obelisk's located throughout Rome:
Here is the view from a bridge over the Tiber River:
