    This is actually a pretty chill, laid back bar. I'm only speaking of the bar area, not the B&B. They make really good kamikazee's, or any mixed drink rather. That's more their specialty than beer. It's darkly lit, and not too loud, but not quiet enough that you hear aeveryone else. There's no dancing, but there is light music playing. ...

    Piazza di Spagna or also know as the Spanish steps is a nice sit-around place around the fountain on the never-ending steps. Some luxury shopping stores, brand clothing shops I mean, are around this area. It will be definitely a nice moment for cinema lovers, where they will feel the famous Fellini's falling stroller scene being shot here at the ...

    My favorite museum in Rome. You have to book ahead usually, but it's well worth it. Situated in the Villa Borghese in the north of Rome, the Galleria Borghese has some amazing sculptures-the most stunning of which is Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, showing the moment where he is chasing her and she is turning into a tree to escape. The ...

    Piazza della Repubblica

    41 reviews

    Piazza della Repubblica is one of Rome's grand sights if you're traveling by car, much like how PIazza Venezia wows newcomers to the Eternal City. It's not surrounded by tourists and there's a beautiful fountain in the center. The architecture around the Fontana delle Naiadi is equally beautiful, especially at night when the place is dramatically illuminated.

    Another Michelangelo's masterpiece is found in this particular church; and it's the statue of Moses. Not so grand but the details are incredibly impressive, that even Michelangelo himself said: "Talk Moses! TALK!"

    One of those treasures that's all too common in Rome, Santa Maria della Vittoria houses the incredible Bernini sculpture "The Ecstasy of St. Theresa" so circumspectly that you'd never know it was there. The church is beautiful, but the sculpture itself, like so many of Bernini's works, is truly masterful.

    I feel kind of weird saying this place is beautiful, but in a way it truly is - the bones are displayed in such unique, intricate patterns that it almost feels like art. Then you realize exactly what you're looking at and it becomes a little creepy. I thought the Crypt of the Leg Bones and Thigh Bones (real name) ...

    The Domus Aurea is an palace, built by emperor Nero. Altough it can only be visited with a guided tour, it's a must see in Rome. It's pretty impressing, how huge the area of the domus aurea was.

    Quattro Fontane

    0.69 mi from Astoria Garden
    7 reviews

    On four corners of a traffic-choked intersection sit these four fountains, representing two rivers (the Tiber and Arno) and two goddesses (Diana and Juno) preside peacefully, adding a Renaissance flair to what would otherwise be a routine commute. We think this typifies the 'local' experience in Rome; daily mundane activities against a backdrop of truly incredible art.

    A beautiful museum. Wonderful displays, laid out in a way that makes it easy to get around, and an admirable collection - especially The Boxer of Quirinal, my favorite. Such detail in bronze is very impressive.

    One of my favorite fountains in Rome. I really loved the monument here, the detail in the sculpture work is really nice. I also love the bronzed color. It's a great piece to photograph.

    In my opinion this is the best area of Rome: a mix of Vintage and trendy, from shops, restaurants and people. It is so relaxing taking a wlk here, doing some fine shopping and then having lunch somewhere. At night it s even better.
