Rome 1944

This is behind the Vittorio Emmanuel Palace. I've forgotten what it is!

Eric: This is Castel Sant'Angelo (Castle of Saint Angelo). It is featured in many movies, including Roman Holiday (Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn) and Angels And Demons (Tom Hanks). On the right is the Tiber River. Both the bridge ahead and the bridge behind the photographer lead to the Vittorio Emmanuel Palace which is about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) away. If this picture had been taken on the other side of the street (Lungotevere Vaticano), the two AMMs could look a short distance past the photographer to Piazza San Petro (Saint Peter's Square) in front of the Vatican.
