Rome - Eternal City






Rome is the capital city of Italy and one of the oldest cities in the world. Its history spans almost over 2 thousand years and many old landmarks remain. It sits along the Tiber River and has a Mediterranean climate. It's very popular with tourists from all parts of the globe.


The Pantheon is a temple to all gods of Ancient Rome and was built in 126 AD.


An avenue passing through the Villa Borghese Park. 


An aqueduct in the outskirts of the city brings in water into Rome like it has done for thousands of years.


The Colosseum is Rome's most popular landmark. It's an elliptical amphitheatre in the city and it hosted many bloody shows. Now it's a popular tourist spot.


The overly grand Saint Peter's Square in Vatican City.


One of the grand arches along the Roman Forum. The current street level is a few feet above the forum because centuries of construction have created many layers.


St. Peter's Basilica, the center of the Catholic Church and centerpiece of Vatican City.

Thanks all for the comments!! I appreciate each and every one!! 

@Evillions: Not really, I have two regions now so it's not very cohesive..maybe I will try to put everything together later.

@jaycobav: I was actually thinking of doing an Israeli city today but I looked for some bats and there are basically none, so not right now, sorry

Thanks everybody

The broken columns are from one of swi21's prop packs I think. I've had them for a long time, so I'm not exactly sure, sorry.
