Rome
Rome is Italy's capital city and, in classical antiquity, the center of the Roman Empire. Because of the city's long and storied history, it is known as the "Eternal City". Presently, Rome has become a large "open-air history museum". Inside the city, many traces of ancient Rome have been preserved. You can go to the Colosseum—one of the symbols of the powerful ancient Roman Empire. At the Roman Forum, you will be shocked and amazed by the prosperity of the ancient imperial world. The Pantheon is a place where you can see architectural miracles constructed over 1,000 years ago. Within the city of Rome, there is also a country within a country—Vatican City.

Things To Do in Rome

Colosseum
4.6/5
2,872 Reviews
The Colosseum may be the most famous landmark in all of Rome. It was built in 80 AD and was once the site of many gladiator battles to the death, and prisoners fended off hungry lions. The Colosseum consists of four floors in total (including the basement), however only part of the ground floor and second floor are currently open to the public. The first floor offers a view of the maze-like buildings in the center of the Colosseum that were once part of the basement of the structure. They were once the homes of the beasts and gladiators that would be made to fight for the entertainment of the crowds. From the second floor, one can see the interior structure of the Colosseum which is divided into three parts: the arena, the auditorium and the podium. It is also a perfect location for taking unforgettable photos.

405 Reviews
Castle
Castel Sant'Angelo was originally a family cemetery built by Emperor Hadrian. Later in the sixth century it was rebuilt as a papal castle. It's said that in 590 AD, Pope Gregory saw an angel in the castle skies, then renamed it as Castel Sant'Angelo. Ponte Sant'Angelo is on the river Tiber, at the western side of old Rome. There are several bridges that connect to the Tiber's west bank, one relatively famous one is the Ponte Sant'Angelo that goes to Castel Sant'Angelo. Ponte Sant'Angelo had two statuettes personally sculpted by Bernini, which have been moved inside the church for preservation.
Borghese Gallery
4.6/5
294 Reviews
Art Gallery
The Borghese Gallery holds most of the paintings, sculptures and antiquities collected by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, who was one of Bernini's greatest patrons. The building is set within the Villa Borghese Gardens, a beautiful attraction in its own right. Showcased within the collection are some of Bernini's greatest works, such as the Apollo and Daphne, as well as a few Titian masterpieces and six major pieces by Caravaggio, including The Boy with a Basket of Fruit and the Madonna della Serpe. The gallery only permits a select number of visitors at a time, so it is advisable to book in advance.
Piazza di Spagna
4.5/5
1,135 Reviews
Square
The Piazza di Spagna was made famous in the classic movie "Roman Holiday," starring Audrey Hepburn. The plaza is actually not all that large. Most visitors tend to congregate on the plaza steps. If you continue to walk up the steps, you can see the Holy Trinity Church. The church belltower is typical of its gothic design. Stand on the platform in front of the church, and you'll get a view of the entire plaza. In addition, the baroque fountain below the steps - the boat fountain is also very famous.
Trevi Fountain
4.6/5
1,151 Reviews
Trevi Fountain is also called the "Maiden's Fountain". Actually, most people prefer to call it the "Wishing Well". It is one of the most exquisitely carved works of art in Rome, and a must-see for all visitors. The image of the seahorse in the fountain sculpture is vivid. It's violent expression symbolizes the vagaries of the ocean, and the fantasy of fate. People come here and use their left hands to throw coins over their right shoulders. This is done to show you will return to Rome and find romance. Whether this superstition is true or not, the coin throwing has already become inextricably linked with the fountain. Everyone loves to take pictures of themselves making a wish.
