      Sculptor and architect Bernini was the virtual creator and greatest exponent of Baroque in 17th century Italy. He has left his greatest mark on Rome where Papal patronage provided him with enormous architectural commissions. Arc de Triomphe, in full Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile, massive triumphal arch in Paris, France, one of the world’s best-known commemorative stands at the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (formerly called the Place de l’Étoile), the western terminus of the avenue des Champs-Élysées; just over miles (2 km) away, at the eastern terminus, is the Place de la Concorde.

      Ponte Sant Angelo The bridge of Saint Angelo spans the epic River Tiber and creates a footpath between the Castel Sant’Angelo and the near side of the river. Opening up directly from the front of the castle, this bridge has great symmetry and it is considered one of the most beautiful and decorative bridges in Rome. le carrozze su ponte , il castello con l'originario muro di cinta e l'orologio visibile sulla torre () Old Photos Vintage Photos Book Summaries Old City Aerial View Paris Skyline Rome Cities Vintage World Maps.

        A night stroll along the river is one of the first romantic things to do in Rome Wherever you are in the city centre, a night stroll along the Tiber River is unbearably romantic. The lights from the world-famous attractions you visited during the day gently flicker in the calm waters making the ambiance evocative and perfect to round off a date. This is a wonderful walk that will simply blow you away by the views and quaint, small streets, typical of Florence. This is, however, a long walk, which can take anywhere from 1 ½ to 2 hours depending on how much you stop and rest but it is well worth the 2 miles just to get off the beaten path, away from the crowds and to see the city from a view you will never forget.
