Here’s a picture of our guide Ian (he guided us around the Vatican too) at the Roman forum, the center of Roman politics and business back in the day. There’s not too much left of it today (after the barbarians destroyed it and let it fall into ruin for several centuries the Catholic Church came in and took whatever materials were left to build churches and the Vatican) but it was still wild to think about the different senators and Emperors that met here regularly in Ancient Rome. I forget what those three big arches behind Ian were, but they were huge.
