  1. I love the Forum in Rome.!!!

  2. Yes, it is fascinating. Have you been to Pompeii and Herculaneum?

  3. It’s like 3 or more different kinds of structures all in one area. Very interesting! A worthy shot to remember.

  4. Hi sf, Thank you for your comment. Much of Rome is built in layers. Each civilisation built on the remains of the previous buildings, often re-using the materials. Sometimes you can see very old arches or stonework in buildings that were built much later. I took a photo during my previous visit that shows an example of the layers – https://photomaestro.wordpress.com/2013/01/31/layers-in-the-forum-rome/

  5. Very well done capture. The lines and balance of the buildings are very well done. Interesting fact about Rome being built in layers.

  6. Thank you for your kind comment.
