Mouth of Truth – Rome, Italy

La Bocca della Vertia (The Mouth of Truth) is considered to be one of the world’s oldest lie detectors. If a perjurer puts his hand in the mouth it will be bitten off according to the legend.



  1. I’ve yet to post much of my European stuff, but Italy was one of my favorite 33 countries visited. I’d love to go back with my husband some day.

    • Italy is my wife’s favorite country. She said ever she ever goes missing look for her in Venice. My favorite is New Zealand. If you haven’t been there yet you will absolutely love it. Especially the South Island. You can go to the original bungy jump bridge near Queenstown. I watched people jumping, but that is something I won’t do. There are so many outdoor adventure things to do around Queenstown I sure you could spend a few weeks just in that area but you need to see the rest of the country. Or just make multiple trips back. So far we are up to 36 countries, but I have a few years on you since I am in my early 50’s. Number 37 is coming this October when I head to Peru to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
