Streets of Rome 4

The symbol of Rome for the past 2,000 years, SPQR stands for “Senātus Populusque Rōmānus”, which roughly translates as the “The Senate and People of Rome”. You’ll see this stamped, carved and sculpted on a whole host of municipal buildings and objects throughout the city today……if I remember correctly this example is from a lampost:

The Unknown Church

Rome contains hundreds of churches and we wondered in and out of a few during our visit…….for some of which I completely forgot to make a note of the name. So this is only an unknown church by virtue of the fact that I have no idea what its called. However it does have an impressive interior, so I thought I would share these images regardless:
