Cats from Rome {Italy}

When in Rome last year, I stumbled upon these beautiful postcards by Giancarlo Gasponi.

The first cat poses near the Trevi Fountain. If you saw the movie La Dolce Vita, you'll probably remember the scene in which Anita Ekberg strolls into the Trevi Fountain as Marcello Mastroianni pursues her. It's one of the most famous scenes in film history.

The cat in the second picture makes itself at home in front of the Colosseum. Apparently, the Colosseum is home to about 200 cats, all of which are being fed and pampered daily. However, I didn't see a single feline when I was there.

The building behind the third cat is the tomb of the Roman Emperor Hadrian: St. Angel's Castle, also known as Castel Sant'Angelo or Castle of the Holy Angel.

Have you ever been to Rome? What are your favorite places here?

Also, thank you to author H.L. Burke (Thaddeus Whiskers and the Dragon, Beggar Magic, Dragon's Curse, and many other books) for presenting Traveling Cats with the Versatile Blogger Award.

  26. What gorgeous photos and the cats are perfect "accents" to the lovely sights in Rome. I was last there in 1990 and don't remember seeing one cat in the Colisseum but I'm glad the ones that are there are being pampered! We loved everything about Rome....the people, the food, the incredible "history" around every corner.....AND the beautiful weather in September!
