saverome Tawny Tiber. Known as "flavus" or yellow from all of the silt the Tiber accumulated down its 400+ km journey from springs to the mouth, at the Mediterranean. I took a boat rider from Rome to Ostia (which literally means "mouths"). The color is not what is once was, as modern dams stop a lot of silt from flowing down (thereby eroding the channel, putting many monuments and bridges in Rome at risk). At this point I've just gotten off the boat; Ostia Antica is just behind me! #meetrome #saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory 16h
  •   mouseyxox Ostia Antica was my favourite place I visited last summer in Rome. If I only had a day in Rome in the future, I'd go back to Ostia Antica. 15h
  •   ljxm You can take a boat along the Tiber down to Ostia?? 15h

saverome Forum Boarium- Republican temples of Hercules and Portunus beside the Tiber River. Both temples were later converted into churches. More recently, they were restored by @worldmonumentsfund #meetrome #reconstructedhistory #recycledhistory #saverome 2d
  •   saverome @janeannapp accurate for being the church phase roof. Certainly the ancient roof system was different (esp for round temple). 1d
  •   janeannapp @saverome makes sense. Grazie! 1d
  •   jennyz1010 So beautiful! Just photo shop out the streets, vehicles and houses, and it would be like looking back at ancient times. 20h

saverome Quintessential Quirinale. Looking out of the Quirinal Palace after the first ever #emptyquirinale hosted by the palace and @Instagram for a one of a kind visit through the residence of the President of Italy. In the distance the statues of Castor and Pollux from the Serapide temple on the location, with an obelisk that once decorated the entrance of the Mausoleum of Augustus. #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory #saverome 3d

saverome Sala Dei Corazzieri. Standing just outside of the Pauline Chapel (previous photo) you are equally amazed by this papal hall once used to receive ambassadors and foreign emissaries. It's exactly what makes this palace a true gem of Italy, used by 20 popes, 4 Italian kings, and 12 Italian presidents. #meetrome #emptyquirinale #recycledhistory Thanks @instagram for a momentous visit! @olloclip shot. 4d

saverome Paoline Chapel. Inside the wondrously large Palazzo Quirinale there is a chapel, this chapel, that has the same dimensions as the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. Absolutely astounding! And all part of a magnificent #emptyquirinale hosted by the presidenza di Italia and @instagram - what an incredible outing-
And opportunity to meet a lot of new Instagrammers! #communityfirst #meetrome #saverome #reconstructedhistory #recycledhistory

saverome Capitoline Venus. One of the best bathing love goddess representations from the ancient world. She deserves her own room, in the Capitoline Museums. I'll be there tonight on #periscope for a unique live stream! #nottedeimusei2016 #recycledhistory #ancientromelive #reconstructedhistory #saverome 6d

saverome Lone rider. The Marcus Aurelius equestrian statue has stood outdoors for most of its existence- first near the emperor's family property by the Lateran, then the Campidoglio piazza, until 1985. A copy now stands in its place, and the original is safe, under glass in the oldest public museum in the world. #saverome #meetrome #reconstructedhistory #recycledhistory #ancientromelive See you here for #nottedeimusei2016 1w

saverome Thumbs up for colossal statues of Rome! Built for scale and grandeur, Constantine here once sat in the world's largest Roman law court! Part of why the Capitoline collection is extraordinary- we know the context of the art! #meetrome #reconstructedhistory #recycledhistory #ancientromelive #saverome 1w
  •   lucylaloux There was a beautiful column lying on its side next to these statues in the Capitoline museum when I was last there @saverome It had beautiful palm leaves around it and the forum flower, borage, on the top. It's my absolute favourite column. Could you take a pic and post one soon please 7d

saverome Temple of Antoninus Pius and Faustina, now S Lorenzo in Miranda. One of the best examples of #recycledhistory in the Forum Romanum. The three standout Ancient Roman features are the cipollino marble columns, the white marble decorative frieze, and the peperino tuff wall. #meetrome #reconstructedhistory #saverome #ancientromelive 2w

saverome Dig season! Here restorers at work on the magnificent 3D AD pavement of the Flavian Forum Pacis (Here - Severan 3C AD phase) are dwarfed by the imposing remains of the 4C Basilica of Maxentius/ Constantine (in scaffolding due to the adjacent Metro C work. #meetrome #saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory 2w

saverome An empty Piazza di Spagna. Just as the rain stopped at 9AM this morning. The workers has not yet arrived to work on the restoration of the steps (funded by @bulgariofficial). Even the Vigili kindly stepped out of my shot! #meetrome #reconstructedhistory #recycledhistory #saverome See my snapchat! 2w

saverome Imperial box. Underneath runs the "passageway of Commodus" but it was created by Domitian to facilitate quick entry and exit from the Flavian Amphiheater. The actual box seats were only about 10 feet above the arena floor! #meetrome #Saverome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhistory See my #periscope and #snapchat (Darius Arya) inside! 2w

saverome The Augustan-period Pyramid of Cestius (recently restored) is quintessential #recycledhistory incorporated into the Aurelianic Wall circuit (270s AD). You get a great view of it from the Porta San Paolo museum (open daily 9-130pm free entrance). #meetrome #Saverome #ancientromelive See my #periscope there today! 2w

saverome Early morning Pantheon. I like it best before the crowds arrive. Some trucks drop off goods, but mostly it's people walking dogs and parents (like me) taking kids to school. Right past those grey and pink granite columns. #meetrome #recycledhistory #reconstructedhiatory #saverome 3w
