Take a walking tour of Rome on your iPad

An app by my sister. My only benefit from this is that I’ll likely get the app and use it.

While you are relaxing at home or visiting onsite in the heat of ancient Rome, learn about the most beautiful mosaics, the history of buildings, art techniques, materials used, and a bit about the people involved.  View the ceiling covered with Christopher Columbus gold.  Find out what it means to have a square halo.  Look for the pope that was tied to an anchor and thrown overboard into the Black Sea. Find the Phoenix. Stand inside the only chapel in Rome that is completely covered with mosaics; all while having your own, personal, art history guide in your hand.

Another benefit is that I get to share my wonderful high school art teacher with the world.
