Some of the more famous sites pictured below include: the Column of Marcus Aurelius, the Roman Forum, Hadrian's Temple, Palatine Hill, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and—of course—the Colosseum:
This Italian church is painted to look like it has a dome ...
... but when you get closer, you realize it's fake!
Next up: Vatican City! Of course, you're not supposed to take pictures inside the Sistine Chapel (although I saw a ton of tourists with cameras), but I still captured plenty of gorgeous ceilings elsewhere in the Vatican. I also thought it was odd that cameras are allowed in St. Peter's Basilica, where Mass is still offered, but not in the Sistine Chapel. Thoughts from fellow travelers and/or photographers?
