The Roman skyline is, in general, a low one which make orientation from ground level a somewhat interesting affair.
This picture, taken from the third floor of an apartment block, shows the assortment of aerials available to your typical Roman which, along with the buildings, obscure the view of the Vatican library - which you can just make out on the left hand side of the horizon.
From this view, theres no clue of the treasures which lie within.
