    507 reviews

    To me the symbol of Rome. However although it looks Impressive from the outside there isn't that much to see inside.

    The Trevi is fed by the Aqua Vergine, which has been bringing water from the eighth mile of the via Collatina (to the east of Rome) since 19 BC. DON'T make like Anita Ekberg and climb in! ;-)

    Piazza Navona

    4.5
    189 reviews

    Piazza Navona is full of tourists during the holiday season. The square is converted into a seasonal fair around this time. Think holiday treats, ornaments, knick-knacks, paintings, street performers and gypsies. Beware of pick-pockets! The theme is the Feast of Epiphany and features the Epiphany witch which is a version of Father Christmas in Italy. Piazza Navona has long been ...

    Iconic location in Rome. A good starting or ending point it is in close proximity to a lot of other sights. A short walk to the Trevi Fountain as well as a ton of shops.

    Piazza di Spagna

    111 reviews

    It took us a while to find the Spanish Steps. Of course at the base of the steps is Piazza di Spagna (Spanish plaza). In the evening, the lights bring this square to life. There were quite a few people here when we visited but from the other photos, it's especially busy during the day. The nice thing is that ...

    Trastevere

    4.5
    85 reviews

    Small area of Rome "across the river" which is what the name means. It's where all the Americans usually get apartments. Kinda pricey, but beautiful. There are winding cobblestone roads that lead to piazzas with fountains and churches. Great little restaurants.

    Arch of Constantine

    4
    83 reviews

    Largely overlooked due to the close proximity of the Coliseum, and the fact that it is fenced-off to stop people getting too close. Unfortunately, it's primary function nowadays seems to be as a meeting point for organised tour groups.

    Villa Borghese

    4.5
    70 reviews

    I wish we had more days in Rome, so we could just sit in the sun in the very large Villa Borghese gardens. This is the main park in Rome where you have also the opportunity to rent a bicycle and ride the long walks to arrive at the villa itself, turned into a museum.

    Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

    4.5
    56 reviews

    I would pass by this church every day on my way to school, and it always took my breath away. The facade is not as extravagant as some other churches in Rome, but just knowing that it is one of the oldest of its kind is impressive enough. The square is great to sit in and people watch, since it's ...

    Ponte Sant'Angelo: just start walking on this bridge, look forward and lean on the railing of the bridge, because when you look up you will see Castel Sant'Angelo! And then the emotion is strong, very strong!

    Palatine Hill

    40 reviews

    Nothing spectacular just a tree but what made it special is that this tree is standing tall and alone in the middle of every stone of blocks inside the palatine hill. I just think it is beautiful with a spooky funny feature, just right for this Halloween season :) see for yourself.

    Piazza della Repubblica

    4
    41 reviews

    Flanked by grand neoclassical colonnades, this landmark piazza was laid out as part of Rome’s post-unification makeover. It follows the lines of the semicircular exedra (benched portico) of Diocletian’s baths complex and was originally known as Piazza Esedra. In the centre, the Fontana delle Naiadi aroused puritanical ire when it was unveiled by architect Mario Rutelli in 1901. The nudity ...
