Rome’s top attractions
The attractions of Ancient Rome are the highlight of the city’s travel itinerary. Spend a morning at the Colosseum, Rome’s most impressive architectural feat, and marvel at the wonders of this 2000-year old amphitheatre. Explore the ruins of the nearby Roman Forum for a better insight into the central government of the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. For a panoramic view of the sights of Ancient Rome, climb up to the top of Palatine Hill, a popular photographic vantage for people in the city.
Away from the attractions of its ancient civilisation, you’ll find the stately piazzas of Rome in later centuries. These public squares are now gathering places for tourists and residents in the city. They are also home to many iconic landmarks, like the majestic Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. Travelling in Rome can seem like a whirlpool of history. To better appreciate the many facets of the city, step into one of its many museums and galleries which will help you understand and digest the significance of its art and culture.
