St Peter’s Basilica, Rome

The baldacchino and immense dome of the largest church in the world.  St Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Palace remain the ultimate symbols of the incredible heights of opulence, wealth and waste that the Roman Catholic Church reached during the 16th century.

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Athens

An Evzone soldier stands guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Athens, Greece.  The Scots did not have a monopoly on going to war in skirts.  The ceremonial uniform of the Evzones is derived from that of the Greek bandits and guerillas that resisted Ottoman Turkish occupation prior to independence in the early 19th century.
