With so much history, art and culture you would need an eternity
to visit the glorious city of Rome. Below are some of the
highlights of this ancient city.
The Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s
Basilica should be on the top of your list. Independent
of what religion you follow, the Vatican City,
comprising 110 acres, is home to some of the most famous artwork
in the world. The history of this state within a state is
fascinating. Vatican City has its own language, laws, money
and communication systems. Be sure to climb the steps to the
top of St. Peter’s for breathtaking views of Rome.
Recently named one of the new Seven Wonders of the World,
the Colosseum is the unofficial symbol of
Rome. This majestic monument was the centre of Ancient Rome.
The entrance fee now comprises access to the Ancient
Forum, dotted with temples and ruins dating back
over 2,500 years.
A favourite Italian pastime is sipping on a latté
and people watching. You are truly spoilt for choice in the
Italian capital with hundreds of squares to choose from. Some
of the most important include Piazza Navona, Campo
dei Fiori, Piazza Farnese, Piazza del Popolo and
Piazza della Rotonda. Each piazza is also
famed for their sculptures, fountains and monuments.
Must see museums include the Villa Borghese Gallery,
located in the biggest park in Rome of the same name, the
Capitoline Museums on the Capitoline Hill
and Palazzo Venezia in Piazza Venezia. And
don’t forget to throw some coins into the Trevi
Fountain to ensure your return to the Capital!
