Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill [pict only]

Walking on the Palatino hill under the shadowing trees is pretty amazing experience. Between the majestic ruins, one can have a vivid imagination of how the people in the past lived in the ancient rome. It is quite a mystery how the hundreds years temples with the high pillars still stand today despite the extreme weather and gravitation force. This archeological site is really worth visiting beside the Colosseum and the vatican.
