You don’t have to cross the Atlantic,  meander your way through Europe nor head westward on the Orient Express to catch a glimpse of Rome.  The empire’s inheritance to the world can be seen in modern and contemporary architecture in almost every town and city across the globe. We are always on the look out for imperial garland detail on a window,  a forum in a shopping mall or a full-fledged coliseum/library/sports complex.  Thank you for helping us find some Rome away from Rome wherever you are.  Please keep it up– we are building a great gallery of “Roman” architecture which you can see on Statigr.am.

And thank you, Instagram photographers @Introvertmind, @NYRoamer, @Parisinfourmonths, @saman_mt,  Twitter @bjrich09 and Vine @Moscerina for tagging your photos #romeawayfromrome .  So far, New York City wants to dominate as a modern Eternal City, but remember, there’s always Paris.
