Columns, Unified Italy and balconies.

 Marcus Aurelius' Column.

 Monument Nazionala Vittorio Emanuel 2.

1st King of Italy and responsible for unifying it.

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Absolultely not eating, drinking or sitting on the steps. They come and blow a whistle at you to ensure total respect. Quite right too.

View from the top

Lack of gardens in Rome. Everything is crammed in and the weather doesn't allow for manicured lawns. You have to admire the efforts when this balcony first became someone's garden, but it's sadly gone to pot.

See? The sign says "keep off the grass" Made me laugh.
