    Near Termini, a visit here was the perfect choice for me on a cool rainy Roman day. Wow was I pleasantly surprised! Not only do they have TWO amazing Greek bronzes (really rare, and I was disappointed that the Boxer was at the Met in NYC during my visit) but they also have an eye-opening collection of Roman mosaics. The ...

    It's gorgeous, overwhelming and breathtaking and is one of those most photographed and recognized buildings in the world. Believe me when I tell you that a visit to the Colosseum will not disappoint. I had wanted to see the Colosseum since I was a little girl and when I finally took a trip to Rome, I was absolutely overcome with ...

    Hip plaza near the Spanish steps. Always something going on. You can buy cheap souvenirs or hire an expensive horse and carriage, so there is more than a faint whiff of the commercial. But that shouldn't be enough to spoil it.

    Almost as iconic as the Trevi Fountain, the Forum, or the Coliseum. Great neighborhood and well worth a few hours especially if the weather is nice. Enjoy!

    Visit Santa Maria Maggiore (St. Mary Major) if only to see Bernini's magnificant staircase! There are 80 churches in Rome dedicated to Mary. This is the largest and considered the most important, thus, the label "maggiore". Along with St. Peter's, St. John's and St. Paul's, this is one of four papal basilicas in Rome. Dating back to the 5th century, ...

    When I visited Rome, the Arch of Constantine was under restoration; however, it didn't stop us from taking photos of it. It was erected in 315 AD by the Roman senate to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius in the Battle of Milvian Bridge. It's one of a few triumphal arches left in the city. It has 3 archways and is ...

    The column sitting in Piazza Venezia is a copy of the original. The scroll that winds its way up the column telling the story of Trajan's victory is a much copied design.

    Go Here! Fabulous Michelangelo statue of Moses with no protective plexiglass. Put small coins in box to turn on lights to see it best. Quiet and uncrowded place to pay homage to the sculpture.

    Rome is filled with precious pieces of art history that a traveler in a hurry could overlook, and this church is one. Secreted inside is Bernini's masterwork Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, a prime example of sensual Baroque sculpture.

    History buffs will drool over visiting Saint Clement's Basilica, a church on top of a church, on top of a church. Accidental excavations revealed a 4th century A.D. church underneath the medieval basilica, which just happens to be directly on top of a 1st century A.D. Mithraic chapel.

    A walk through the Roman forum is two feeling simultaneously. First there's the sense of awe at being in the epicenter of ancient Roman culture. Here was held Caesar's funeral and here the Romans chased out their last king. At the same time there's a sadness in that much of the forum is an incomprehensible jumble of random columns and ...

    Although the Pope is, of course, most associated with St. Peter's, Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano (Basilica of St. John Lateran) is the official cathedral of the Pope, in his role as Bishop of Rome. This Baroque basilica incredible and is definitely worth a visit, perhaps not on your first trip to Rome, but on another visit. It is ...

    Great place to watch the sunset in Rome. The drawback is that it can get a bit crowded with all the tourists and people hawking their wares. There is an elevator from the Spagna metro stop to the top for those that might have issues climbing all the stairs. It is worth climbing up for some decent panoramas of the ...

    Presidential palace, formerly the temporal home of the papacy when the pope still ruled the papal states. Definitely the case that the presidential court in Italian has all the trappings of monarchy. Grand and yet somehow understated.

The Fontana del Tritone e Fontana delle Api sits in its center, visible from all around. While it may be overshadowed as an attraction by the nearby Fontana di Trevi, it's still ...
