Rome is one of my favorite cities, with great good, a lot of history and a magical atmosphere you always fall in love with Rome. There is a lot too see and it would probably take a lifetime to explore every piece of history that Rome has to offer. This guide gives you 6 things not to miss when in Rome!
Almost all of us have seen Colosseum in some movies like Gladiator. It is an epic monument to the gladiatorial battles which dates back to 72 AD. The amphitheater was build to take an impressive audience of 50 000. It’s certainly must when visit Rome as it’s one of the most historical places you can find in Rome.
Pantheon is a rotunda which was constructed between 119 – 128 AD by Emperor Hadrian. This former temple is one of the most popular sights in Rome and is very well preserved. Today Pantheon is also served as the resting place for Raphael and Italys first president.
Fontana di Trevi
Fontana di Trevi is one of the most beautiful fountains in the world according to me. While admiring the beauty of this masterpiece you can toss a coin and make a wish. The fountain is located in a small piazza with a lot of tourist shops which we recommend to avoid. Try to plan your visit during the night when the fountain is glowing of beautiful lights.
When walking to Colosseum you will probably pass Roman Forum, it’s a must if you enjoyed your visit to Colosseum. The Roman Forum is a collection of many of Romes oldest buildings and temples from the government. We recommend taking a guided tour to get to know most of the history that Roman Forum has.
Pont Sant’ Angelo is a beautiful bridge which is perfect for a memorable photo stop in the middle of Rome. You will get a breathtaking view over the city and at the same time you can admire the impressive bridge designed by Bernini.
Another creation of Bernini is located on Piazza Navona, the Fountain of the Four Rivers which is a beautiful fountain in the middle of Piazza Navona. You can also see Fontana del Moro as shown above. Enjoy the atmosphere on the piazza, take some pictures and finish of with sharing some genuine Italian gelato.
