Attractions

Rome is one of the oldest cities in the world, displaying more than 2.500 years of history, and undeniably, one of the most sophisticated ones as well. Throughout the eons, majestic monuments, palaces, and religious buildings have been constructed here, which today constitute important landmarks to visit and take in the glorious past of the ‘eternal city’. Let's explore some of them!


Colosseum

Probably the most iconic ancient site of Rome, this imposing amphitheater stands sturdy and proud in the heart of the city, declaring to the world that a trip to Rome would not be complete without visiting it. Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum was built somewhere between 70 and 80 AD. At its heyday, it was estimated that it received up to 80,000 spectators—among them, the Roman emperors in a central spot—who swarmed the Colosseum to enjoy gladiator tournaments, games, and other forms of entertaining spectacles.


St Peter’s Square

Located in the premises of Vatican city, the circular square is enveloped by two imposing sets of colonnades, where one can admire beautiful statues of previous popes and other religious figures, and at its center, rises an
impressive obelisk taken from the Circus of Nero. Being one of the most famous places in Rome, St. Peter’s Square has hosted many significant events throughout the centuries. Visit the square to take in its embracing immensity and beauty, and watch the crowds throng in anticipation of the Pope’s incidental appearance.


St. Peter’s Basilica

Right behind St. Peter’s Square, you will find one of the most recognizable and celebrated religious buildings in the world, St. Peter’s Basilica. The Basilica showcases a gorgeous front facade and is adorned with the statues of Jesus and the Apostles. As you reach the top of its dome, you will behold a gorgeous panoramic view. Inside, the architecture and decoration will take your breath away, where you will be stunned by the exquisiteness of the details in its decoration. Michelangelo and Bernini contributed to its magnificent design, and you can marvel at their ingenious artistry in the dome and the Gloria sculpture.


The Pantheon

Established by emperor Hadrian in 118 AD, the stunning Pantheon is one of Rome’s most famous landmarks, standing as one of the best-preserved ancient Roman buildings. Its interiors feature a series of tombs of Italian kings and artists, like the Renaissance architect Raphael, a magnificent dome that is adorned with elaborate artwork, and a central coffer that allows light to disperse all around.


Fontana di Trevi

One can not possibly look at Fontana di Trevi, known as the Trevi fountain in English, and not wonder at its intricate artistry and fine details. Constructed in 1762 by Nicola Salvi, the Baroque style fountain depicts Oceanus, the divine representation of the ocean, riding his chariot pulled by Tritons, and taming hippocamps. When you visit the fountain, do not forget to throw coins into the water over your shoulder for good luck, as local tradition has it!
