Rome Walking Map: Obelisks of Rome-Rome Walking Tour Map

Rome Walking Map: Obelisks of Rome.

As we wander Rome it is fun to imagine from where the obelisks in Rome come and how old are the many obelisks that decorate Rome. When walking Rome's ancient streets you are sure to stroll by an obelisk in Rome that dates back to even before Christ, to around 30 B.C. when Augustus brought the obelisks to Rome from Egypt. Many of the Rome obelisks are from Egypt's Ramesses II era. The obelisks were brought to Rome initially by Augustus to continue Rome's connection to the Sun Gods.
On the Rome walking map below the 8 red dots are ancient Egyptian obelisks brought to Rome and the 5 blue dots are ancient Roman obelisks.

nice info for first time visitors looking to get their head around rome.

I recommend for certain attraction such as triton fountain etc to visit them in the daylight to see them in natural settings, & at night again to see them in the glorious nighttime lightings!
