Roman holiday: The ides of March

To mark the ides of March (and to give me a holiday from having to writing a whole travel story), here's a small gallery of images from the Caesars' and Emperors' Rome: The Colosseum , Arch of Constantine, the Forum , and the sublime Pantheon with its spectacular oculus. (Beware the oculus in a rainstorm. It's open to the heavens, and you'll get wet.)
