Pyramid of Cestius | Rome, Italy

Pyramid of Cestius | Rome, Italy ||

One thing I enjoyed about Rome is the random spots of ancient sights in a modern urban city. When we were doing our big walk east to Palatine Hill, we spotted this random pyramid in the streets of Rome. The Pyramid of Caius Cestius is the only surviving monument of a series of similar buildings existing in Rome in the 1st c. BCE.

Though a lot of people told me there’s nothing much to this Pyramid and can be skipped,  I actually liked the fact that it’s just there so it’s easy to mark off the tourist checklist and it’s small enough for you to take it all in and you don’t need to spend more time since you don’t need to tour inside.
