[Rome—Monday, 13 February 1860]

Monday 13. Ascended the tower of the Capitol to overlook the forum and the 7 hills. How my heart beat as I found we were climbing up this dizzy height over the Roman steps of brick-work. Went to the Capitol and saw 4 perfect things. The Venus, the Adonis, the dying Gladiator and the Faun.
