    The Colosseum is pretty cool to take a look at, even if you don't go inside. Would definitely recommend at least stopping by to visit (Heck, you're in Rome! Be a tourist! Why not!). I didn't take a tour of the inside, but I'm sure if you did, you wouldn't regret it.

    Trevi Fountain

    399 reviews

    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! ;-)

    The pantheon is beautiful and a feat of engineering. It's also small (relative to the other attractions of Rome). It's absolutely worth visiting (admission is free), but don't force yourself to spend an hour there because you think you should.

    Piazza Navona

    190 reviews

    The Piazza is a must visit. It is a feast for the eyes with three fountains and Borromini's design of the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone. There are a lot of cheap goods for sale and not such great places to eat, but still it is worth a visit for the beauty of the design and architecture.

    Roman Forum

    176 reviews

    The Foro di Roma is where all the ancient public buildings used to stand and it's a nice walk to see all the ruins and how large it was. Parts of it are more conserved than others and, for me, the gardens were the most beautiful part of it.

    Spanish Steps

    165 reviews

    Very crowded site for no apparent reason. So called because they used to lead to the Spanish Embassy

    Piazza di Spagna

    112 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 ...

    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.

    Castel Sant'Angelo

    86 reviews

    The most beautiful view in Rome, in my opinion, is from the top terrace. My favorite spot in Rome.

    Piazza Venezia

    86 reviews

    This square is located in the heart of Rome, at the end of the Via del Corso. From here it's only a short walk to some of Rome's most famous sights like the Campidoglio, the Forum Romanum and the Pantheon. Unlike several more pleasant Roman piazza's like the Piazza del Popolo or the Piazza Navona, chaotic traffic dominates the square.

    Piazza del Popolo

    84 reviews

    One of my favorite plazas in Rome. Far enough away from the main sights to be a bit less touristed. Had lovely architecture and a few pleasant cafes.

    Arch of Constantine

    84 reviews

    Arco di Constantino, a triumphal arch, is a must when visiting Rome. Located between the Colosseum and Palatine Hill, you can't miss it when touring ancient Rome. Dedicated in 315 AD, it is being restored right now, and is partially covered by scaffolding. When visiting the sights of ancient Rome, it is easy to become overwhelmed (especially on a hot ...

    Villa Borghese

    71 reviews

    Sit under the umbrella pines and surf the free wifi, or just stroll through the green expanses of Villa Borghese, one of Rome's most beautiful parks. It's all free, so take your time and savor every moment.

    Campo de' Fiori

    62 reviews

    Campos are usually empty after 22:00, but this one in particular is quite animated with cafes and restaurants all around with finest taste; one of them is Obika, the mozzarella bar or just chill and smoke some shisha in the cafe next to it.

    Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

    57 reviews

    In the heart of Rome sits the grand Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore where major streets converge. The huge church is a great spot to take a break, especially since it's so beautiful. Take in the beautiful mosaics and, for the love of God (literally), don't forget to look up.

    Ponte Sant'Angelo

    50 reviews

    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!

    Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II

    44 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

    42 reviews

    Definitely plays second fiddle to other sights in Rome. Could easily be accused of being just a pile of rocks. Interesting enough but requires imagination. The Roma Pass is highly recommended if you don't want to wait in line.

    Borghese Gallery

    37 reviews

    The Borghese Gallery is, hands down, the best museum in Rome. It's collection of Bernini sculptures and Caravaggio paintings are unparalleled, but it's the Pinacoteca (second floor) that really takes your breath away. In order to limit the CO2 that circulates through the room, a limited number of visitors are allowed in this section over the course of a day. ...

    Piazza della Repubblica

    41 reviews

    Definitely go at night when it is just eerily beautiful to behold. Roman grandeur writ very large. And it's a lot of fun too, especially navigating the crowds and climbing the steps.
