It’s impossible to put the Eternal City’s wonderful Rome attractions into a few words – this is merely a basic introduction to many Rome attractions that’ll make it easier for you to decide what to see.
Immerse yourself in the glory days of the city when you visit Rome’s ancient history attractions. Start at the famous Coliseum and nearby arch of Constantine and Palatine Hill, legendary birthplace of the city. Within this small area there are many archeological sites including the Roman Forum where you’ll see the remains of splendid Rome, and imagine how it must have looked during its heyday.
You may need to stay in Rome a while to check out all of the attractions, have a look at rome-velvet.com
to see why staying in an apartment may be a good choice.
Rome is filled with religious and spiritual attractions and none more so than the sprawling, awe-inspiring Vatican City. Visiting this world-famous site can keep you busy for days, but must-sees include St Peter’s Square and Basilica (lovely view from the top!), the cavernous Vatican Museum, and the highlight of a lifetime for most visitors, the Sistine Chapel with its ornately painted ceilings and frescoes.
Rome’s many architectural attractions include a veritable history of styles including fine examples from ancient, medieval, Renaissance and Neoclassic eras. A visit to the 26 meter high Trevi Fountain is a pilgrimage for some visitors; so is a visit to the Villa Borghese gardens and the art galleries lining its shaded pathways. Lastly, round your visit to Rome off with a daytrip to Hadrian’s Villa or Ostia Antica, a complete ancient city where you’ll get the best idea of what life was like in the glory-filled ancient times of Rome.
