Monte Testaccio

Monte Testaccio is essentially an enormous, ancient trash dump where Romans stacked broken bits of olive oil amphorae when the oil residue rancided and the amphorae could not be reused. With land in ancient Rome at a premium, the trash heap was carefully planned and up, it went up! It towers over Testaccio now. Really amazing to walk it up with the broken amphorae bits making an almost musical sound under your feet. And, amazing views from above!
