Explore with us to Ancient Rome

St. Peter's Basilica
This building has over 100 tombs with 91 popes, the Holy Roman Emperor Otto II and Swedish Queen Christina, and two royals that gave up the throne for Catholism. This building is also made up of a solid bronze canopy over the main alter is 96 feet tall and it's called the Baldacchino.
This is one of the oldest water sources in Rome and it was made from the same material as the Colosseum. This is a very popular fountain now a days for throwing coins in the fountain and it's well known around the world. In fact it is a charitable fountain and if you steal the coins from the Trevi Fountain it is a crime.
1. I have learned in sight more about Ancient Romes architecture and have more knowledge about Rome.
2. I learned that they had some good water sources.
3. I found out that we don't have as much architectural things but we do have some and it can actually tell about us about our past.
