A very broad selection of general photos of our trip to Rome are in a gallery under TRAVEL : http://roelh.zenfolio.com/p515711316
Here, however, I take you on a tour of some of Rome's fine museums : we start with antiquities in Museo dei Fori Imperiali (1-22) and renaissance art in Musei Capitolini (23-52).
Then, for contrast: some contemporary art in the splendid decor of architect Zaha Hadid's curvaceous MAXXI (53-100). We saw Italian fashion (1945-1968), Iranian art (1960-2014) and generally weird stuff by Huang Yong Ping.
Our tour continues with Bernini's masterpieces (and more) in Villa Borghese (101-152), and finally a stroll through iconic movie studio Cinecittà (153-171) which brings us back to historic Rome.
Photos of the Vatican, St Peter's Basilica, other churches and squares, and of our day in Tivoli (Villa d'Este and Villa Adriana) are in the other gallery (link above).
