Notes: Rome has many famous landmarks that are popular with tourists.  If you tried to show all of them on a postcard, the pictures would be so small that you wouldn't be able to see what they were.  That's probably why this card only shows four.  On the upper left is the Roman Forum, the ancient marketplace.  Next to it is the Altare della Patria, also known as the National Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of the unified Italy.  The Colosseum is on the lower left, and is probably the most recognizable location of these four.  The bottom right shows St. Peter's Basilica, a Roman Catholic church located within Vatican City.
