Temple of Saturn

with 2 comments

At the end of February I spent a week in Rome at NetDimensions’ sales and partner conferences.

The conference finished on the Friday morning, so on Friday afternoon I had some time to take my camera for a walk around the Forum. One of the most distinctive structures in the Forum is the eight columns of the front portico of the Temple of Saturn, which is the only part of the temple that remains standing. Herewith some photos taken from the Capitoline Hill.

Arch of Tiberius

I believe the structure in the center is the Arch of Tiberius, again with the temple portico on the right. (Update: a commenter points out that the central structure is actually the Arch of Septimius Severus.)
