I just wanted to finish posting pictures from today. Every hotel has different wifi and this particular wifi makes it very difficult to post my pictures. So here are the rest from todays activities: The National Museum of Rome and the Baths of Diocletian.
National Museum of Rome – Bronze statue of a boxer – B.C.
The boxer’s face up close
Beautiful wall frescoes from ancient Italian villas- close up
Ancient fresco walls and mosaic floors
close-up of mosaic floor
Baths of Diocletian and Santa Maria degli Angeli
Santa Maria degli Angeli- 8 of those red granite columns are original from ancient Rome
Pictures do not do this justice- it is the largest one I have seen so far in Europe. Would have loved to have heard someone play it.

The best-preserved Roman copy of the Greek Discus Thrower
They have preserved four whole walls of this Garden Painting fresco
