Capitoline Museum, Rome

When in one of civilization's oldest cities, you must stop by its oldest museum, perhaps the first museum in the world. No Jackson Pollocks to be found. Instead, a trove of ancient sculpture, including the sublime Dying Gaul. For James, it was the joy of seeing so many art history courses' slides come to life (at least in 3D).

Sarah, hanging with the big boy, Constantine.

Ancient and modern, enjoying the front plaza. The She-Wolf with Romulus and Remus, which has become the city symbol of Rome. Hey, Seoul took notice.

Overwhelmed tourists.

A couple of close ups of our man Constantine. As if close ups are needed.

James, enjoying more giant pieces of stone anatomy.
