Tonight at 8.30pm  on  ABC1, the second episode in the series Greatest Cities of the World with Griff Rhys Jones will be aired.  Tonight, Rome is under the spotlight.  I had the pleasure of living there for a few weeks last year and loved the art, food, people, coffee, wine, just about everything.  You guessed it, it seems fitting that today an image from Rome is our photo of the day.

Castel Sant’ Angelo is a fortress built as a mausoleum for the Emperor Hadrian (AD130-139).  It has also been a prison and a papal residence for former Popes who absconded there for protection in times of danger. There has been a covered passageway which still connects Castel Sant’Angelo to the Vatican.
