Rome wasn’t built in a day, as the saying goes, and we are proving you need more than a few to visit just the highlights. Our second day took in the more ancient parts of the city starting with the Roman Forum and Palatino, where Rome probably started. Palatino is where Romulus and Remus are said to have been saved by a wolf and Romulus subsequently founded Rome in 753BC.
Also on Palatino, past the Museo, are the baths and palace of Septimius Severus (I know, I just kept thinking of Severus Snape too!) and past these is the stadium. The Orti gardens, though I’m not really a garden-y person and especially not in the middle of January, were also worth a wander, if only for the view from the end, showing the Colosseum one way and the Forum the other. From the Arco di Tito (Arch of Titus, said to be the inspiration for the Arc de Triomphe in Paris) at one end, to the Arco di Settimo Severo and Tempio di Saturno at the other, this relatively small area is crammed with the ruins of ancient Rome’s commercial, political and religious centre.
Having spent more time than the 3 hours we had planned on for this area, we headed over to the Colosseum and, having bought our tickets from the Forum ticket office, skipped the considerable line and headed for the second floor.
Leaving Tim at Termini Metro station, I then embarked on my first solo mission in Rome: Palazzo Massimo alle Terme. Luckily the other statue I wanted to visit, the Afrodite al Bagno Accovacciata (Aphrodite at the bath, crouching) was being afforded much more privacy. Works from Second and First Centuries, Imperial and late Ancient periods are exhibited on three floors. I found the sculptures that date back 2000 years to be incredibly beautiful and while there have been books written on the subject I thought it best to just introduce a few of my new friends by quoting from the display information.
This portrait of an unknown Roman citizen shows traits that are typical of the late Hellenistic tradition and was carved around the second quarter of the first century. It is rather overwhelming to walk through gallery after gallery of such beautiful and ancient works of art.
One of the floors of this museum is devoted to showing the decorative arts as they were used in luxurious villas.


Amid all the classical splendor the basement of this museum contains a reminder of what make the world go round. The Place for Conversation StartersWhen you are sitting around the water cooler every day, you can always start a conversation with your colleagues by saying “Guess what I saw it in the San Francisco Sentinel this morning.” You will sound brilliant and informed.
With the forumapp downloaded onto my phone we ventured into the ruins that lie just opposite the entrance to the Colosseum. More than just a myth, there is now evidence for this in the form of ancient huts, that date to the 8th Century BC, commanding an excellent view over the river Tiber. Part of the imperial palace, this sunken area was used for private games and entertainment. The main thoroughfare, Via Sacra, was the end point for triumphal parades of victorious soldiers, whilst to the left and right are the remains of buildings that leap from the pages of history. Had I been on my own, I probably would have gone for a guided tour as you get access to the highest and lowest levels of the famous structure. The palazzo is one of several sites of the Museo Natzionale Romano, and three of it’s four floors focus of classical sculpture, frescoes and mosaics, with the basement holding a collection of coins and jewellery.
On the top floor, whole rooms, that were excavated and saved from destruction when Termini Station was built, have been reconstructed in their original layout and size.
The style is a blend of Greek art and Italic tradition, is traceable to Etruscan portraiture of the so called 'Italic cubism' of the III century BC. This replica may have been produced in the 16 or 18th centuries possibly reworking and polishing an ancient work.
I liked this area, the stadium in particular as although it is undoubtedly a ruin, there is still enough of the basic form and structure to be able to complete the picture yourself. On the Ides of March (March 15th), the day of Julius Caesar’s assasination, flowers are still placed by the ruins of the Tempio di Giulio Cesare, where he was cremated. This museum is completely under-appreciated in my view but the upside is that it was almost completely empty.The first and second floors had some extraordinary sculptures that I wanted to visit.


The frescoed walls and accompanying mosaic floors are breathtaking, in particular is the garden room form Villa Livia, where the four walls enclose you in frescoes depicting a vibrant and bountiful garden.
Tim had to take the photo below on one of his sunrise outings, as when I went, there were so many huge groups of people I couldn’t get near. On Sunday we visited the Palazzo Massimo Alle Terme, which contains the ancient art section of the Roman National Museum. If you can get inside, the frescoes are beautiful and surprisingly well preserved, however don’t assume that because the boards say it’s supposed to be open it will be! To get there, you must pass the ruins of the house of the Vestal Virgins and further on is the Curia which was the official seat for the Roman Senate.
The first was the museums most famous inhabitant, Myron Discobolus (Discus Thrower), an idealised athlete copied by the Romans from an ancient Greek bronze.
However I think I prefer the marble which gives the skin a tactile quality and softness, ironic considering the material she is made of.
This compared with the near deserted church I experienced several years ago when I visited with my university group, and we had a half hour lecture stood in front of it with no complaints and perfect views. There are loads of these statues around as they were incredibly popular in ancient Rome, with copies in London, the Vatican and Munich to name just a few. They were in the process of covering him in sticky dots and scanning the poor guy when I was there, although from what I could tell they were having more than a few difficulties!
