Viva La Roma!

This picture gives the feeling of arriving in Rome. From the modern tour bus we see the bustling city streets with the trolly wires over head, and there in the background, larger than life, are the awesome ruins of the Roman Imperial Palace over looking the green lawn that covers what was once the Circus Maximus where Roman charioteers once raced.
