Personal Route Map, Spring 2011

This is a personal route map through Rome, Italy that describes my personal experience traveling from Piazza Barberini to Piazza dei Santissimi Apostoli.

 The parts of the path differ greatly in age. Piazza dei Santissimi Apostoli, the Church of the Apostles in the piazza, dates back to anywhere from the 4th to 6th century CE.  Pope Martin V renovated it into a Baroque church during the 17th century....Piazza Barberini changes the most over all.  The Piazza was created in the 16th century as part of the Palazzo Barberini, but not named as such until 1625.  The shape changes as the surround buildings are demolished and rebuilt.  The streets stay consistent even in current times, with those nearest the Church of the Apostles constructed first, then the city expanding to the Northeast.
