The Original Capitol Hill

Scene from Christmas a year or so back on the Capitoline Hill in Rome. Apparently the name had something to do with people’s heads being chopped off (think capital punishment), such are the vagaries of semantic history.

I actually stayed across the river. Easily one of the world’s oldest suburbs, the Trastevere district in Rome is the place to go to escape the mass tourism of the historic core.
