The most striking thing about the ruins in Rome is that they are part of the city, sometimes incorporated into more modern buildings such as churches and restaurants. One lot of ruins has even become a cat sanctuary! I’ve visited most of the more well-known ones with the exception of the Colisseum because it closes at “sundown”, though the definition of what sundown really is isn’t clear, and each time I’ve been too late!

I assume you mean cat sanctuary 🙂 This is one of the very few really worthwhile feral/stray cat control programmes in the world that is a great success. They practice Trap, Neuter and Return, which means that the population never gets out of control and cat welfare is maximised. If you ever get the chance to be involved or support such a programme I highly recommend you do so. If it is a can sanctuary, then I want to know why all those tins of pineapple and tomatoes are threatened.
Thanks, Susan, I’ll correct the can sanctuary straight away!
