It is impressive to see such large scroll erected in the the City of Rome. It tells a whole story of Marcus Aurelius and the wars fought under his command. The column itself went through a lot and had to be restored in order for...More
This was a little ways from our airbnb but since we had to pass it several times on our way to and from other landmarks, we would make a point of swinging by to study it. There are quite a few columns in Rome but...More
While you can no longer climb this mighty tower, it is still an amazing historic site. I came across it by accident on my tour of Rome and was so glad that I did. The classical Roman relief depicts the conquests of Marcus Aurelius and...More

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural
storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
