The Roamin' Roman

Benvenuto! You have happened upon the blog of a wandering Catholic American college student studying for a year in Rome, the Eternal City. You will find here my pontifications, ruminations, reflections, images, and ponderings on my life in Rome. Ciao!

Wednesday, February 22

Later on Saturday, I went with a few friends up to the Capitoline hill (between the Roman Forum and Piazza Veneiza basically) to see about some free museum entrance that they had heard about. Well, when we got there we were told that the main museum wasn't free, but that there was a free admission that day to the old Senaturio building (the current Rome City Hall basically) - so we thought, hey, why not. It was kind of a neat building, lots of interesting Italian/Roman history, including a lovely plaque commemorating a visit by John Paul II. This is a view from one of the windows, overlooking the northwestern side of the Piazza Venezia. And hey, in typical Italian fashion, when we finished with the tour we discovered that they were going to let us into the Capitoline museum for free after all (it ends right at the back entrance)!
