Nei Passi di Cesare

In the Footsteps of Caesar

In the middle of Campo dei Fiori

I took an informative tour in Rome on the Ides of March called ‘In the Footsteps of Caesar”. The guy giving the tour was very well informed … unfortunately, too well informed. He knew so much that he couldn’t tell a story that actually flowed – he kept interrupting himself to add more detail.

Market at Campo dei Fiori

On the bright side, it got me out of bed early enough to see the market at Campo Dei Fiori for the first time.

She-Wolf: Mother of Rome

Above is the picture of a miniature of the famous she-wolf who suckled Romulus and Remus at the (mythical) birth of Rome.

I don’t remember what this is, but it’s cool, huh?

City Hall

This is the very first town hall … in history. It sits atop a hill: Capitoline Hill, which is where we got ‘Capitol Hill’ from – even though our capitol isn’t really on a hill. (is it?)

Roman Forum, viewed from above


And I found a great view of the Roman Forum!

Roman Road


And in the end, we actually saw a road made of stones that actually were part of ancient Roman roads. So, presumably Caesar actually walked on these.
