Bocca della Verità

After visiting the Roman baths on our first day in Rome, we set out to explore the city. We stopped by the Bocca della Verità, which was featured in Roman Holiday.

According to legend, if one placed their hand in its mouth and was lying, their hand would be "bitten off." Apparently priests fuelled this myth by placing scorpions in the mouth.

Here I am joking around in the Vatican Museum the next day.
