One of the most amazing piazzas in all of Rome. Designed by Michelangelo, the buildings are now museums. Amazing to see, even from the outside. The statues alone, dazzle. An absolute treat to stumble upon while walking around Rome.

A happy confusion of many buildings- Rome's town hall - an important museum - Ara Coeli church. With great views over Rome

Italy is magnificent. The carvings, molds, heights,design, color combinations are truly amazing.
