Iconic Roman Architecture

Culture comes in all shapes and sizes, as art, literature, cuisine, tradition, and architecture to name a few. Wandering the streets of Rome, Italy, I felt a sense of elegance, prestige, and strength in the architectural details of the buildings. Surviving long periods of time since the Roman empire, battles of the medieval ages, and the bombings of World War II, the architecture now has a beautifully rugged allure. Seeing as I am no trained architect or critic, I figure you care more about the sights than my attempt to talk about something I know little about. Just as long as you understand that I whole-heartedly admired the artistry, design, and effort that went into all of the features shown below. Obviously, seeing these structures in person is more impactful…I literally stood and admired these buildings for an abnormal amount of time taking in all the minute details. But I hope for those of you who wish to travel to Rome, that you get the chance and give yourself the opportunity to eventually do so. In the meantime, take a virtual tour through the architecture offered by this timeless city!
