Photo Gallery: Trajan’s Market, Rome

Some of you may recall that I visited Rome, the so-called “The Eternal City”, for a few days in mid November. I’ve finally gotten round to sorting through my holiday photos so I thought I’d share some of the photos I took at Trajan’s Market. Tomb Raider fans will probably recognise the name as it was one of the places Lara Croft visits in the 2000 game Tomb Raider Chronicles.

I’m toying with the idea of exploring Trajan’s Market in greater depth in an upcoming edition of Lara’s Travels, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, enjoy the photos I took in and around the site. As you can probably tell, the real Trajan’s Market looks radically different to its video game counterpart. And unlike Lara, the most terrifying creature I had to deal with was a friendly black cat who lives among the ruins.

  1. I don’t think this differs too much from the game version, especially the road with doorways on both sides, that’s very well represented at the very beginning of the level. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The similarities end there as the rest of the site’s quite open and not as built up as it appears in the game. Still, they didn’t do a bad job. At least it looks vaguely like the place it’s supposed to be. ๐Ÿ˜‰
