We hope your intrigued by the visions we share, so divulge in our essay if you have a care. What wonders await in our scenes far from home.... Italy's finest, the eternal Rome

St Peter's Basilica Colonnades

The Colonnades surrounding St Peter's Basilica - imposing and providing the perfect framing for St Peter's square, they are meant to represent the maternal arms of mother church.

St Peter's Square

Walking in-between the Colonnades of St Peter's square, the light cast through the columns and the shadows this created were fantastic.

St Peter's Basilica

The Basilica di San Pietro, burial site of St Peter, considered the greatest architectural achievement of its age - steeped in history and intertwined with the Papacy and the Catholic church.

The Mausoleum of Hadrian

The Mausoleum of Hadrian - Also known as Castle Saint Angelo, part of the Vatican state and once used as a fortress and prison.

Piazza di Navona

Walking through the Piazza Navona we admired the fountain and the works of various street artists - a nice place to sit and people watch.

The Pantheon

One of the most recognisable buildings in Rome and by far my favourite - The Pantheon is spectacular both inside and out, the detail, decoration and grandeur are simply breathtaking.

The Pantheon interior

The interior of the Pantheon is decadent, exquisitely detailed and contains the tomb of Raphael - the high renaissance architect.

Front facade of the Pantheon with inscription

"M AGRIPPA L F COS TERTIVM FECIT" - "Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, made this building when consul for the third time"

The Trevi Fountain

The Trevi Fountain was unbelievably crowded but we still managed to admire this masterpiece - the detail of Oceanus, the Tritons and the Hippocamps are superb, while the Palazzo Poli frames the fountain perfectly.

The Colosseum interior

The inside of the Colosseum is phenomenal - the size and scale of the structure took me by surprise, while thinking of the events that took place there made me feel honoured.

The Colosseum

We were slightly disappointed as a section of the Colosseum exterior had scaffolding on, however the majesty and architectural brilliance were still awe inspiring.
