Basilica Maria degli Angeli and the Baths of Diocletian

Today Monica and I headed over to see the Basilica Santa Maria degli Angeli and the Baths of Diocletian , both by Termini Station. The Basilica was pretty amazing and had these interesting sculptures protruding from the front doors on the church. Inside, the Basilica was enormous, and had a huge rendition of St. John the Baptist's head carved out of marble, laying sideways on a table.
This is looking up above the entrance of Santa Maria degli Angeli. You can tell how old the building is by the worn bricks near the top.

This is a view of what is left of the Baths of Diocletian from a window of the Capitoline Museum.

The baths weren't quite what I expected them to be...they actually weren't really anything at all. Basically the only thing that is left of them is the area they used to be in, as many museums and roads and other structures have taken the place of most of them.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
