Rome, Italy – Tourists stream though the Arch of Septimius Severus where once triumphant Roman armies marched on their return to Rome. The triumphal arch (Italian: Arco di Settimio Severo), dedicated in AD 203 to commemorate the Parthian victories of Emperor Septimius Severus and his two sons, Caracalla and Publius Septimius Geta, is located at the Northeast end of the Roman Forum. The tourists will walk up through the Arch to Campidoglio and the Renaissance buildings in the background. In the far background is the white marble structure of Piazza Venezia. In the foreground, ruins and to the left the Temple of Vesta. Photo shot in the afternoon sunlight framed in the foreground, by ruins; horizontal format. © Mano Chandra Dhas
