Er Cuppolone

That picture somehow reminds of the movie "Roman Holiday" with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. Didn't he have an appartment with a roof top view...?

Hi Joe, it looks like it was sunny where you were but very cloudy around S.Peter Cupola

Joe said...

Yes Nicola , they had an appartment with a view of roman roofs.

Dear Lisi , yes there was fog

So I imagine you'll be getting even more tourists after The Divinci Code comes out. If you haven't had so already! I like the antennas in the photo that give the dome a little less "holiness". It now looks like a building in a city. Great perspective.

I agree with Michael, I like the antennas and the rooftops.

That's a magnificent view! But the antennas get in the way :)
