A Roman Holiday

Myself and my sister recently took a trip to Rome. Here are a few pictures that we took while we were sight-seeing.

I loved the big bunch of roses that people had thrown into the fountain at the end of the Spanish Steps.

The Vatican & St. Peter’s Basilica.

This is a video that I made using an app called isuper8, it gives the effect of vintage film.


 We really enjoyed stumbling across the church of San Luigi dei Francesi near Piazza Navona.

Inside you can see Caravaggio’s  “Saint Matthew” cycle:
