Rome, Italy Postcards
When we travel, we love to send postcards to loved ones. These Rome postcards are an excellent example of what we would choose. Postcards are also really awesome and easy to carry souvenirs.
I have always enjoyed taking my own pictures, but sometimes it is overcast, rainy or some goober decides to step right in the way as I snap the shot. Wow, I really wanted that picture of that dude's head or that "oops" expression on that woman's face. Postcards allow me not to fret. I can still take home perfect pictures of my favorite tourists spot, without the unexpected interlopers in the photo.
Join Me on a Walk Through My Rome Scrapbook of Postcards!
The Colosseum Postcard
The Colosseum is one of the major points of interest in Rome! It isn't always easy to get a great photo due to the sheer size of the structure. I took this original photo from the top deck of an open bus. I was thrilled with the outcome when we got back home and I uploaded my photos.
My personal experiences when visiting the Colosseum have left me preferring this view, from the outside, of the structure. It is emotionally overwhelming when a Christian tours the inside and knows the history and purpose of the arena.
Entrance to the Roman Ruins Postcard
The Roman Ruins are fascinating. It is easy to get so involved in really looking that you totally forget you have a camera to take pictures. These postcards make that a lot easier. You can purchase the postcards for your own scrapbook and focus on enjoying the visit to the Roman ruins in Rome.
I admit, I never expected to laugh at the statues in Rome, but that surviving big toe was simply hilarious at first glance. However, after I got over my giggles, I considered how difficult it would be to chisel out that digit in such fabulous detail.

The Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica Postcards
There is so much to see inside and outside of the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica. So many beautiful tapestries and renowned statues. Even the ceilings are beyond gorgeous.
The museum is often very crowded which makes it extremely difficult to get great photos without people in them. Plus, it takes several hours, sometimes even days, to see everything. You don't want to waste your time in Rome waiting for the perfect photo op. Buy the postcards and forget the stress of trying to take pictures yourself.
Here are Some of the Ceilings in the Vatican Museum
The Resurrection Tapestry Postcard and Statue Postcards
One of the most impressive tapestries in the Vatican museum is the Resurrection tapestry shown below. The statues of Apollo, Bacchus, & Diana, along with many more, can also be seen at the Vatican. It really is a magnificent museum of priceless art and artifacts.
The Capitoline Museum
The Capitoline Museum is a magnificent museum that you will not want to miss when visiting Rome, Italy. The Capitoline Museum is one of the few museums in Rome that allows you to take pictures, which makes it a photographer's paradise.
The statue of the girl with the snake at her feet was one of my personal favorite statues in all of Rome. The details of that statue are truly amazing and she is in almost perfect condition. The other figure shown actually hangs over one of the interior doorways.
The Trevi Fountain Postcards
Long before you even plan a trip to Rome, you know about the Trevi Fountain. What you may not realize is how extremely difficult it is to snap a shot of this stunning fountain. There are always people around the fountain and no one wants their Trevi Fountain pictures photo-bombed.
