Photo Gallery: Trajan’s Market, Rome


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

I plan to write about Trajan’s Market at greater length in an upcoming edition of Lara’s Travels so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the photos. As you can probably tell, the real Trajan’s Market looks quite different to the place seen in the game. And unlike Lara, the most terrifying creature I had to deal with was a friendly black cat that lives among the ruins. ;-)

  1. Fantastic shots, and seeing the game come to life is amazing!

  2. 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. :)

    • 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. ;-)
