wordful wednesday - my favourite column


so this is my favourite roman ruin. it's [what's left of] the temple of apollo sosianus at marcello's theatre in the jewish ghetto (just known as 'the ghetto').

the temple was built in 435 BC, restored in 179 BC and re-built in 32 BC by the consul sosianus.

the ghetto is a very cool part of rome where we stayed. we had breakfast most days right near here - a quick coffee and yummy custardy pastries and croissants.

we walked past these ruins countless times, and EVERY time i passed it, i snapped at least a couple of shots.

you could say i'm slightly obsessed with it.


for more wordful wednesday, go see angie over @ seven clown circus.
