What to see
The Roman Forum
The Roman Forum is a historic place filled with ancient ruins. It once played an important role as a central venue for gladiator matches, public speeches, and elections. Today, you can see the remains of columns that were once part of the Roman Forum.
The Colosseum is another historic site that played a significant role in Rome’s history. It used to be a location for things like gladiator combat. The famous landmark is a must while visiting Rome.
You can visit the Vatican for free and walk around St. Peter’s Square and St. Peter’s Basilica for free. The Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums are also popular attractions in the Vatican and cost around 15 Euros to enter.
The Pantheon dates back to AD 609. The former Roman temple is one of the best-preserved monuments. It had originally been built as a temple for the Gods and later became a burial ground for kings and artists.
The Trevi Fountain was built in the 18th century. It played a significant role in providing natural spring water to the city. Today, many people visit the iconic landmark and throw coins into the fountain to find love.
When visiting the Spanish Steps, you can often hear live music and find other visitors sitting on the steps. The steps are a great place to take in the lively atmosphere or enjoy a delicious gelato.
