Rome, Italy.  Rome Has Something Special To Offer, No Matter Your Interests Or Tastes

Whether you daydream about fighting the gladiators in the Coliseum, debating with the senators in the Forum, tossing a coin in the fabled Trevi Fountain, or being awestruck by the magnificence of St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s masterpieces, Rome seems to live up to its sobriquet as the Eternal City

Colosseum of Rome

Colosseum

The Colosseum or Coliseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, is an oval amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy. Built of travertine limestone, tuff, and brick-faced concrete, it was the largest amphitheatre ever built at the time and held 50,000 spectators. Walk on the same cobblestone roads as julius Caesar! 

 

St. Peter’s Basilica

St Peter’s Basilica in Rome is one of the world’s holiest catholic shrines, visited by thousands of pilgrims and tourists every month. Built upon the tomb of St Peter, this splendid church is a magnificent must-see for visitors to Rome.

The history behind the creation of St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome is almost as amazing as the building itself. After the first Basilica was knocked down, it took over 100 years to rebuild, and some of the most famous architects of the time contributed to its design. If you are planning a visit to Rome, then you can’t miss St Peter’s Basilica. Situated in the Vatican City, you can visit the Basilica and also the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums.

 

The Pantheon

The Pantheon

The mighty Pantheon stands as one of the best preserved ancient Roman buildings in the world and is one of Rome’s most famous attractions. Constructed in 118 AD by emperor Hadrian, the building that stands today was actually built on the site where an earlier temple stood that was commissioned by Agrippa.

 

Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountain

There are not many other fountains in the world as lavishly decorated and sculptured as the Trevi fountain. Constructed in 1762 by Nicola Salvi, the fountain pays tribute to the Roman God Oceanus who can be seen riding his chariot pulled by Tritons and taming several Hippocampus. The detail of the sculptures is simply wonderful and the whole facade and fountain are a true work of art.
