Pictures from Rome Part 5: Miscellaneous

Came across this statue of another Italy-tourist from Germany in the gardens of Villa Borghese; in my estimation the most beautiful public park in Rome.

Often cities located on rivers will have promenades or otherwise put their waterfronts to good use. In Rome, however, there is pretty much nothing located on the banks of the Tiber. Despite the fact that someone went to great lengths to create these murals.

The tower of Rome’s Fiumicino airport features a fascinatingly complex upper structure.

With a few hours left before I had to head back to the airport, I went to the rose garden overlooking Circus Maximus. They have speakers installed there, so as I was sitting back, eating my packed lunch, classical music was playing in the background. It was the perfect conclusion to a wonderful vacation.
