PIAZZA DEL CAMPIDOGLIO, ROME

Day 8 and last day of our Sorrento holiday.
This is one of Rome's most beautiful squares, designed in the sixteenth century by Michelangelo and laid out between two summits of the Capitoline Hill, the most important of Rome's fabled seven hills. In the center of the square stands an equestrian statue of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (barely seen. The two large classical statues that adorn the top of the steps represent Castor and Pollux They date back to the antiquity and were placed here in 1583.

I was in Rome several years ago but did not have the opportunity to visit this square. So I made it a point to visit it this time.
Many thanks for all your views, comments and favs. Always much appreciated.
