Rome Panorama Header Image

templatepanic romaclick website
Among all hotel website, there is one that I really like the design. This is the screenshot of the website. It’s about Rome hotels. This site is really a commercial site which is selling hotel rooms, apartments and Rome Tours and Shore Excursions. The template is considered simple but very organized.

I like the color theme which is a combination of black and red-orange. It makes the appearance bright but yet strong and bold. There is a texture for its background like an old textured wall. Talking about Rome that has many extraordinary artistic ancient buildings it brings that feeling to this web template. This web template is not made by me, but for me, a template maker, this template gives me inspiration to make the similar template like this.

Right now, I already have a panorama photo of Rome from i2i production. This panorama Photo of Rome was taken 8 frames and combined as a montage. The result is incredible panorama photo of Rome.

I’m using this to make a header image for alternative website header for this Rome hotels website. It is in size 950 pixels length, I made it according to the original website, but I made it 250 pixels height. You can use it as well as you like, crop it as necessary and I hope you enjoy it as you enjoy the panorama as well.

Some of my technician friends were learning and struggling with that Cisco thing.

I just know that Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is a certification. It gives the certification to the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size route and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN. This certification is required for those who want a career in this area. From its original source, Cisco provides training and now the updated CCIE Routing and Switching certification (version 4.0) features new certification standards that reflect the job skills employers are looking for at the expert level.
