Eurotrip - Rome Part 3

After leaving the Vatican, we walked across to the Tiber, where there was a lot of commotion. Upon investigation, we discovered that the heavy rains throughout Italy had caused massive flooding of the river and caused this end result:

Debris and a houseboat or two smashed up against one of the bridges spanning the Tiber. You can see Castel Sant'Angelo in the background. There was police tape everywhere and helicopters circling above. Eventually we got bored and continued along.

We came across this bike with the smashed front tire and I thought it would make a good picture.
