Rome is the capital of Italy and one of the world’s top travel destinations. Very few cities offer its visitors so many attractions as Rome. Home to the Vatican and to some of the world’s most relevant historical treasures, Rome is a mandatory stop when visiting Italy.
Rome is located in the Lazio region, in central Italy. With a Mediterranean climate which ensures warm temperatures all year round, any season is great for visiting this fascinating city. If you are planning to book any of the city’s hotels, we recommend you to get the Roma Pass, which includes the free entrance to the most popular attractions, as well as the free travel on public transport.
There are hundreds of things to do in Rome, but you should start for the city’s major landmark: the Colosseum. The construction of this magnificent theatre began in 72AD with the Romans and it was completed 8 years later. The amphitheatre and the remains of the underground chambers where gladiators used to be held will be like travelling back into the Roman times. The Roman Forum and the Palatine are the best example of the roman columns from the ancient Roman Empire. However, of all the ancient Roman monuments, the Pantheon is, without any doubt, the best preserved.
On the other hand, you should not miss of the more recent historical monuments, including the St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel or the Vatican Museum. The Trevi Fountain is also a very popular attraction among tourists, since it is the setting of several famous films such as Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita”.
Finally, we also recommend you to visit the Trajan’s Forum and Market, as well as some of Rome’s museums, including the Capitole Museum.
