    The Colosseum is probably the most impressive building of the Roman empire. Originally known as the Flavian Amphitheater, it was the largest building of the era. The monumental structure has fallen into ruins, but even today it is an imposing and beautiful sight.

    Amazing feat of architecture! The Pantheon and its freestanding dome is just as amazing as the symmetrical exterior designs as the amazing history that is stored within.

    Arch of Constantine

    84 reviews

    I wandered past the Arco di Costantino quite by accident. Leaving my group in Il Colosseo in a rush to the Foro Romano to meet up with an Italian friend, I took a path directly passing this beautiful arch. Late and trying to find my way, I did not take in the fact that this monument was built way back ...

    Trajan's Column

    23 reviews

    Dedicated in AD 113 as part of Trajan's forum at Rome, this 29-meter (95-foot) high marble column on a square sculpted base celebrated the emperor's military achievements. The detailed spiral reliefs on the shaft of the column, depicting Trajan's Dacian wars (AD 101- 02, 105-06), were probably added after his death as a form of commemoration. Rome’s most impressive novelties ...

    Borghese Gallery

    37 reviews

    There is a lot to see in the Borghese Gallery but the main reason to reserve tickets to visit is to see the unbelievable Bernini sculptures, particularly, Apollo and Daphne, and Poseidon and Persephone. The exquisite skill demonstrated in those works is amazing. The thin leaves growing from Daphne's fingers and the pliant flesh on Persphone's thigh makes it almost ...

    Via dei Fori Imperiali

    23 reviews

    I had a live-in guide with me when I went to the forum, but you should go and read a guidebook or take a tour. Too much important history happened here to miss it. At least 30 min to over an hour needed.

    Appian Way

    22 reviews

    This is one of my favourite spots in Rome, though well outside the city centre. 16kms of the ancient road (which used to run from Rome to Brindisi) remain. On Sundays the entire stretch is closed to traffic, though during the rest of the week it's a traffic free nature / archaeology park after the first couple of miles - ...

    Palatine Hill

    42 reviews

    The Palatine, overlooking the forum, was the home of the Imperial Palace and the seat of government power for centuries. Guided tours can point out the significance of each courtyard and ruin. It's also probably the best place to get a good vantage point on the ancient city.

    Villa Borghese

    71 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 ...

    Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

    57 reviews

    Beautiful church with high, ornate ceilings and countless altars. It's elaborate and grand and makes you feel small without making you feel insignificant. It's a little known fact that the tomb of Gianlorenzo Bernini rests here; blink and you could miss the step indicating its location. It's also said that there are remnants of Jesus' baby crib kept here, though ...
