    Piazza del Colosseo 1, 00184 Rome, Italy
    507 reviews

    We've visited the Colosseum and Roman forums with Context Travel docents. Highly recommend them. Having someone explain the history and purpose of the ruins adds so much to appreciating the sights.

    Trevi Fountain

    Piazza di Trevi, Rome 00187, Italy
    398 reviews

    The Trevi Fountain is currently undergoing restoration. The fountains are empty and blocked off. Not worth visiting at the moment, though surely beautiful when they're back on.

    Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Rome, Italy
    235 reviews

    The feeling of love at first sight, with an ancient architecture of monumental significance. We explored the Pantheon during our midnight stroll in downtown Rome, which at this time is still buzzing with people under a different type of light. I saw the monument and immediately got my heart stolen. The Pantheon is the best preserved building from imperial Rome, ...

    Roman Forum

    Via dei Fori Imperiali, Rome 00186 Italy
    175 reviews

    I only walked around the area, didn't get to go inside it-- but the Roman Forum is still pretty darn cool looking. Recommended to go inside or just view it through the gates if you're walking by, if you can.

    Spanish Steps

    Rome, Italy
    163 reviews

    I was never all that impressed by the Spanish Steps as a monument in and of themselves. I did hang out with some friends here in 2005 after a long pub crawl on the Fourth of July.

    Piazza di Spagna

    Piazza di Spagna, Rome 00187 Italy
    111 reviews

    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.

    Piazza Venezia

    Piazza Venezia, Rome 00187 Italy
    85 reviews

    The view from this place is one of the best in the city and it's free. I guess not a lot of people know about it because it's not very crowded.

    Piazza del Popolo

    Piazza del Popolo, Rome 00186 Italy
    83 reviews

    Great place to start a walking tour of Rome. Start here after walking through Villa Borghese, Via del Corso past the Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and then Campo di Fiori. Read up on the history of the 3 roads stemming from this fantastic piazza. Avoid the tourist trap restaurants and find something on a side street.

    Arch of Constantine

    Via di San Gregorio, 00186 Rome, Italy
    83 reviews

    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 ...

    Villa Borghese

    Piazzale del Museo Borghese 5, 00197 Rome, Italy
    70 reviews

    I'm hard-pressed to find a more beautiful park in the world. Perhaps it's because there are remnants of history proliferated about that makes it so much more mesmerizing than any other park I've been to in the world. Villa Borghese is Rome's expansive natural playground. With great museums inside, notably the Galleria Borghese and the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, it's ...

    Campo de' Fiori

    Piazza Campo de' Fiori, Rome 00186, Italy
    62 reviews

    I do like Campo de' Fiori, but only because I can't not like a historic, bustling square in Rome. That said, it's probably my least favorite of the large ones in Centro Storico, mostly because it just feels a bit dirty. If I lived here, I'd probably like to indulge in an aperitivo at a few of the surrounding bars ...

    Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

    Piazza di S. Maria Maggiore 42, 00100 Rome, Italy
    56 reviews

    Of all the geat Roman Basilicas, Santa Maria has the most successful blend of different architectural styles and is one of the most richly decorated. The Cosmatesque marble floor and the Romanesque bell tower with ceramic roundels are medieval. the Renaissance is represented by its coffered ceiling and the Baroque gave the church twin domes and the imposing front and ...

    Ponte Sant'Angelo

    Ponte Sant'Angelo, Rome 00193, Italy
    50 reviews

    Walking across the Ponte Sant'Angelo is like an open air sculpture gallery. The statues of angels are all individual depictions, some reputedly by Gianlorenzo Bernini, and all delightful to look at.

    Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II

    Piazza Venezia 3, Rome 00187 Italy
    43 reviews

    The Pizza Venezia is one of the most conspicuous monuments in Rome. The statue of Victor Emmanuel, the first King of Italy is a testament to modern Italian nationalism. It's a handsome enough palace, if a little gaudy. When I was in Rome I attended an art show here.

    Palatine Hill

    Piazza Santa Maria Nova 53, Rome 00186 Italy
    40 reviews

    A lovely place to rest with views of the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill is one of Rome's famous hills. The walk is lovely and the place is historic. It's worth a visit if you're already visiting the Foro Romano, but the view isn't anything compared to Gianicolo in Trastevere.

    Piazza della Repubblica

    Piazza della Repubblica, Rome 00185 Italy
    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 ...

    Borghese Gallery

    Piazzale del Museo Borghese 5, 00197 Rome, Italy
    36 reviews

    I love that the Galleria Borghese limits entry to specific times, making it necessary to place a reservation several days in advance, with a maximum visit of two hours. This means the crowds are minimal, unlike the herd of people through the Musei Vaticani. You are able to breathe as you read about the great art in this impressive palazzo. ...
