Rome, the Eternal City. We found it a bit underwhelming compared to such well-preserved cities as Florence and Venice. Most of the famous landmarks are crumbling and soot-covered. The sense of history fills its streets, however (or perhaps it's just the exhaust smoke from all the motorcycles). Rome is chock-full of fountains, statues and churches (over 900, according to the guide book), as you can see below.

We happened upon a Dali exhibition in our wanderings. After I had taken photos of many interesting sculptures one of the museum's attendants saw me and asked me to stop. Fortunately, unlike in "The Godfather", they didn't beat me up and break my camera.
