Day 54.

It's getting hot here in Rome now. Very, very hot and it's lovely. anyway today have been spent at the Forum Romanum and we, among much else, visited the Santa Maria Antiqua church from the 6th century AD.

The peristyle of the vestal house, decorated with flowers. Beautiful.

A fresco from the Santa Maria Antiqua with the first depiction of the holy virgin and the child that we know of.
