Rome V




A fountain stands on each side of the Piazza del Popolo to the east and west. Steps from the Piazza to the east lead up beside a waterfall to the Pincio park, near the Villa Borghese.
Had a short rest there in the roman sun... Lovely...

An Egyptian obelisk of Rameses II from Heliopolis stands in the centre of the Piazza. The obelisk is the second oldest and one of the tallest in Rome and was brought to Rome in 10 BC.
In the south of the Piazza begins the Via del Corso which is partly a pedestrian area with loads of nice but expencive shops.
