@galba68 knowing your passion and your fantastic bricks collection, I can easily imagine you salivating in front of "the wall"...
When were these photos taken? Could've been taken 1,700 years ago with how perfect everything looks and without a hint of modern civilization (we're still calling ourselves modern and civilized, right)
A trip to Rome is on my bucket list... once the boys are older and I've gotten all my shots
Hard for me to believe it's been 12 years since I was there. Maybe I'll go back to Italy someday. Knock on wood. (I'm supposed to get my first vaccination on January 29, so I'm trying to stay healthy in the meantime!)
@galba68. It's fantastic how much Roman architecture is still in place.
@OutsiderSubtype, that was a truly great segue!
Ryro, I took this photo in 2014.
Huh. That would explain the alternating thick and thin layers.
Thanks for that interesting link. Apparently never built for the masses..
@galba68! I really want to go back to Rome. I was there, in 2015, and we had rent a bicyle to bike over the Appian road. I really recommend it. I think the second photo shows your wall, from a distance
And here's the tomb (left):
Fantastic photos, Limes!!!
