A great visit to Rome--although I discovered that I hate being a tourist. I'll have to see if I can find a way to work a bit when I visit another country so my full time employment isn't just sightseeing. But here are some pics.

These are the steps designed by Michelangelo, leading up to the Capitoline Hill.

This is a view across the Tiber to St. Peter's Basilica.

This is a view of the Forum.

This is the bronze of the athlete removing a splinter, in the Capitoline Museum.

This is Michelangelo's sculpture of Moses, located in S. Petro in Vinculi.

This is a more or less random view of one angle on the Roman skyline, taken from the top of the hill where the Borghese gardens are located. We stayed not far from there.
