Santa Maria Maggiore

We proceeded on, tired, museumed-out, but,
hey, this was possibly our last tourist day in
Rome for a while; here we are passing 1/4
of the Four Fountains, still in the Quirinal,
I think






















Passing by the Allegory of the Bank of Italy (1921); a lot of
water has passed under that bridge...















We thought we might follow the brothers to
McDonald's



















Or even dinner at Diocletian's Baths; but we
were too tired for watered down wine



















Walked past symphony hall and Nero...it was a 20,000 step
day, but we were determined















And ended up at Santa Maria Maggiore, another of the
Papal churches Vicki wanted to see, with its 5th century
mosaics
















Thus; darkly














Another great mosaic arch














Detail














Silver-covered Crib of Jesus down there, they say














Elevation and mosaics, looking astern














'Atta Girl, Mom
