About Rome

The eternal city has been a source of inspiration for artists, writers and travelers for millennia, thanks to its many wonders. Rome is full of places that will capture your imagination and leave you spellbound with their beauty. The city has so many historical monuments, churches, palaces, and other sites that it’s almost impossible to see them all in just a few days. However, the good news is that there are some sights that are so impressive and important that they must be seen by any visitor to Rome. Here’s the ultimate itinerary for a perfect Rome experience.

The Colosseum
The Colosseum, one of the greatest and most famous amphitheaters in the world, is a must-see for any visitor to Rome. Construction of this iconic building began in AD 72 under the rule of emperor Vespasian, and it was completed during the reign of his son, Titus. It was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles for almost 500 years, until emperor Honorius declared it off limits in the fifth century. It’s estimated that as many as 80,000 spectators could fit into the arena during the games. After many centuries of harsh weather conditions and looting, a significant part of the Colosseum was lost forever. However, what still remains is enough to evoke wonder and amazement. Visiting the Colosseum is definitely a must-do activity during your stay in Rome.

Renaissance Rome
Rome’s renaissance is perhaps best seen in the 15th-century buildings that are located in the city’s famous squares, such as the famous Trevi Fountain (Fuente de la Eterna Primavera). The building on the other side of the fountain, the ornate Baroque-style church, is the 17th-century church of Santa Maria della Immacolata. This church sits on the site where the Temple of Jupiter was once located. In the 16th century, Pope Sixtus V built the beautiful baroque church of Santa Maria del Popolo, behind the Santa Maria della Immacolata and next to one of the main roads leading towards the walls of the city. This church was built on the site of a temple dedicated to the god of war, Mars.

St. Peter’s Basilica
The impressive St. Peter’s Basilica is the largest church in the world. It was built on the location of the Apostle Peter’s grave, and it’s the center of the Roman Catholic Church. Construction of this magnificent basilica began in 16th century and ended in 1950 when the dome was completed. This building, housing the Papal Throne, attracts millions of visitors from around the world annually. The stunning basilica’s architecture and decoration are worth seeing, especially the beautiful mosaics on the dome and the altar. The interior decoration and the sculptures of the basilica are made by the greatest artists of their times, including Michelangelo, Bernini, and Raphael. If you go to Rome, don’t forget to visit St. Peter’s Basilica.

The Ancient Ruins of Rome
Some of the most important ancient ruins in the city include the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill (the archaeological site where the Temple of Romulus and the Temple of Apollo once stood). There’s also the Roman Forum, which is the largest archaeological site in Rome and once housed the city’s political, commercial and social activities. The Temple of Saturn can be found here; it was built around the sixth century BC but was rebuilt many times, most recently in the 16th century. Also found in the Roman Forum is the unique and striking Arch of Septimius Severus, which was built around 203 AD to commemorate the Roman emperor, his wife, and two sons.

The Vatican Museum
Visiting the Vatican Museums is a must for art lovers. The building houses the world’s largest collection of the Renaissance art and the sculptures made by famous artists, including Michelangelo, Raphael, and Bernini. There are many treasures to be seen, including some of the most famous paintings in the world, such as the Sistine Chapel and the Gallery of the Dreams.

The Sistine Chapel is the place where a young Michelangelo painted the famous ceiling. The Gallery of the Dreams is also one of Michelangelo’s masterpieces. There are many other paintings and sculptures inside the museums worth seeing, such as the famous Laocoön, the Apollo, and the Pietà. The Vatican Museums are open daily from 09:00 until 17:30, except on the last Saturday of each month when it closes at 13:30.

Pantheon
The incredible 2,000-year-old Pantheon is one of the best-preserved Roman buildings. It’s also one of the most important buildings in the world, and it’s a must-see in Rome. This amazing structure was built as a temple for all the gods of the Roman Empire, but it was converted into a Christian church in the 8th century. This ancient building has withstood the passage of time with its architecture and design largely intact. The interior of the Pantheon is impressive and awe-inspiring. Visiting the Pantheon is one of the best ways to understand how ancient Romans lived.

Roman Forum and the Capitoline Hill
The Roman Forum was the heart of the city during the empire. It’s a place where many important events took place and where the markets were held. The Temple of the Goddess of Liberty was built in the Roman Forum, and this is where Julius Caesar had his final speech before he was killed by Brutus and the other senators. Many other important buildings are still standing in the Forum, including the Temple of Concord, the Temple of Romulus, and the Curia (the Senate house). The ancient hill of the Capitoline is also located in the Forum, and it once housed the Temple of Jupiter, the supreme god of the Roman religion. Today, the Capitoline Museums are located on the hill, and they are home to one of the most important collections of art in the whole country.
