Iconic Rome

"Iconic" is an adjective that tends to be used carelessly, indiscriminately nowadays.

The iconic dishes of Chicago?  Chicago Eater put together a list of 20.  Seriously.

In my view, in order to be iconic, one image should come immediately to mind, not an entire smorgasbord.

After 5 days in Rome, the Colosseum represents the iconic image of the city for me.  It is instantly recognizable by name and place, andit's been around for 19 centuries.

The view here is from Palatine Hill, and it's my favorite of the many I've taken of the Colosseum.
