Vittoriano in Rome

The Vittoriano is a monument in memory of Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy. It was created after his death, started in 1885 and opened in 1911. It's HUGE...not sure if that comes across in the photos. It sits on a main thorofare in Rome. While in Rome a few years ago, we traveled alot by taxi (yikes!) and it seemed everytime we got in the car, we ended up in front of the Vittoriano. Hey look...we're back :o)
