On the southeast end of the Isola Tiberina, Rome's only island, near the single remaining arch of the Pons Aemilius bridge.

Wikipedia: The Pons Aemilius (Italian: Ponte Emilio), today called Ponte Rotto, is the oldest Roman stone bridge in Rome, Italy. Preceded by a wooden version, it was rebuilt in stone in the 2nd century BC. It once spanned the Tiber, connecting the Forum Boarium with Trastevere; a single arch in mid-river is all that remains today, lending the bridge its name Ponte rotto ("Broken bridge").

The oldest piers of the bridge were probably laid when the Via Aurelia was constructed in the mid-3rd century BC. Initially constructed in 179 BC with stone piers and a wooden superstructure, the bridge was fitted in 142 BC with six wholly stone arches. In 12 BC, Augustus completely restored the bridge with a tuff and concrete core.

Damaged and repaired on several occasions, the bridge was defunct by 1598, when its eastern half was carried away in a flood. The remaining half was demolished in the 1880s, leaving behind only one arch.

Inside the church of Santa Maria in Aracoeli on the Capitoline Hill in Rome, Italy.

"The Aracoeli is perhaps the most typically Roman of all Roman churches. Rising above the ruins of a temple dedicated to a pagan mother-goddess and now consecrated to the Madonna — a transformation which is far from rare in Italy — its interior provides a perfect illustration of the continuity of Roman life, with its magnificent and assorted columns that once graced classical temples and palaces, and its cosmatesque pavement and monuments gleaming with brilliant fragments of marbles taken from the ancient ruins. The floor is chequered with the tombstones of famous men who lived and worked in Rome throughout the centuries, the walls are lined with the votive chapels of historic Roman families, scores of glass chandeliers lace the whole interior, and the magnificent gilded ceiling commemorates the papal fleet’s participation in the victory of Lepanto, which ended Turkish naval expansion in the Mediterranean." (Georgina Masson: The Companion Guide to Rome, Woodbridge 2009).
