Colosseum

It may be two thousand years old but the Colosseum is still the symbol of the eternal city, every year drawing thousands of visitors, meaning long queues and an endless wait. In order to avoid the problem, a ticket may be purchased in advance through the tourist contact centre, by phoning 060608 or...

Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

The Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore is the most important and best preserved of Roman churches dedicated to the Madonna. It rises on top of the Esquiline Hill and is the only remaining example of early Christian architecture, even though it has over time been further embellished. Work on the...
