Rome, Italy

January 17, 2006
A number of Rome's famous sites can be viewed in this KOMPSAT image. East of the River Tiber towards the northwest part of the city we can see the Vatican, and a little along the river the 'star-shape' of Castel San Angelo. Viewing south of the center past the Vittorio Emmanuelle Monument and through the forum we see the distinctive shape of the Colosseum.
