Treasures among the ruins, continuing our journey to Rome

 The massive and iconic ruin that once was the temple of Emperor Maxantius which was defeated in the battle over the Milvian bridge. Constantine became the sole emperor of the Roman empire thus beginning the Byzantine empire with Istanbul as the capital. The building project seen is the shoring up of this temple even as they construct the metro line C near and under it. Finally they are extending the metro system which until the completion of line c has only 2 lines, line a and b!

 This is also an iconic view of Rome, there are lots of paintings of this.
It is always so gratifying to be walking on the old roads of Rome, never fail to invigorate me.
