Roma, sette (set-tay)

After our time at the Colosseum we went to Palatine Hill and explored the ruins there.

We saw lots of broken columns, which the kids had fun using as seats.

We saw a whole host of other ruins, too.  This area had been burned at the time of Nero and he built a lavish palace here.

The Arch of Titus was built in 82 A.D. to commemorate a siege of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. and is along the Via Sacra leading into the Forum.

By the time we got to the area of the Forum, with Saturn's Temple among other things, we were all hungry and tired (especially me, and there are a few of you who know what happens when I get hungry and tired), so, we cut our walk through Ancient Rome short--what's another broken piece of marble, really?  Here's what we saw from a distance.
