A few days ago, I left you in the lurch, indicating that there was something very interesting to be seen if you passed through one of these portals. I didn’t have any photos to show what you’d find in there, but Peter (bless his socks) provided a link to a post he had written about this hidden (in plain view) wonder in Rome.
Any images from here on are courtesy of Peter. Please do yourself a favour, visit his blog, it’s crammed with photos and facts, mostly centred on Rome. Roman Despatches
To read what he had to say, to go with his photos, follow this link: Passeto del Biscione
It was a mighty lucky day for me, when I happened upon Peter’s blog, and then was able to meet him while I was in Rome. He has boundless energy and enthusiasm, and is a fount of wisdom about Rome. I hope I have him as a guide again, one day in the future.
And, some information about the historical background and recent restoration of this passeto: Hidden Rome
