Images from our five days in Rome, with a one-day side trip to Pompeii.
Overlooking the gorgeous River Tiber in Roma.
The Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers) is in the Piazza Navona in Rome, near where we stayed. It was designed in 1651 by Gian Lorenzo Bernini for Pope Innocent X and represents the four major rivers of the four continents through which papal authority had spread, according to Wikipedia. They are the Nile, representing Africa, the Danube, representing Europe, the Ganges, representing Asia, and the Río de la Plata, representing the Americas.
