    Pantheon

    Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Rome, Italy
    4.5
    234 reviews

    Pantheon is another breath-taking place in Rome. Another place that is rich in history. The artist Raphael's tomb is inside and so is the first king of Italy. I would definitely go back to Rome.

    Trevi Fountain

    Piazza di Trevi, Rome 00187, Italy
    4.5
    397 reviews

    This place is always packed! But for good reason. It's kind of one of those "must sees" when in Rome. If you go at sunset, it is absolutely stunning to see the shift between day and night. It's a whole other type of gorgeous in the evening. When you go make sure you know the traditions. First have 2 pennies ...

    St Peter's Basilica

    Piazza San Pietro, 00165 Rome, Italy
    4.5
    159 reviews

    Just to be in the presence of greatness, that's how I felt when approaching the security lines...to get inside the basilica. I felt that every security measure is necessary to protect such an important symbol and its relics inside.

    Piazza Navona

    Piazza Navona, 00186 Rome, Italy
    4.5
    188 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 ...

    Vatican Museums

    Citta del Vaticano, Terrasini 00193 Italy
    4.5
    117 reviews

    Probably the most important collection of religious artwork in the entire world. For starters, the Vatican Museums are home to the Sistine Chapel, the most famous artwork of the Renaissance. Raphael's School of Athens is another important work. My favorite exhibits were actually the modern religious artwork. We are so often focused on past centuries when considering religious art that ...

    Colosseum

    Piazza del Colosseo 1, 00184 Rome, Italy
    4.5
    506 reviews

    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 ...

    Sistine Chapel

    Viale Vaticano, Rome 00165 Italy
    4.5
    111 reviews

    The Sistine Chapel is the last spot in a Vatican Museums visit. Sort of saving the best for the last. Too bad the attendants push you into the middle and don't let you stand near the Last Judgment. But despite the crowds, looking at Michelangelo's masterpieces on the ceiling and wall is worth the bother. Highly recommend going with a ...

    Piazza di Spagna

    Piazza di Spagna, Rome 00187 Italy

    110 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.

    Spanish Steps

    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!

    Borghese Gallery

    Piazzale del Museo Borghese 5, 00197 Rome, Italy
    4.5
    35 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 ...

    The Piazza Venezia is the central heart, the very geometric center of Rome. Located on the historic Via del Corso it is a gateway to many historic area including the Roman Forum and the Capitoline Hill.

    Roman Forum

    Via dei Fori Imperiali, Rome 00186 Italy
    4.5
    175 reviews

    The Roman Forum is a must see. For one, you can buy tickets to the colosseum there and bypass the ridiculously long lines you would have had to stand in if you had bought tickets at the actual colosseum. Two, the roman forum is so awesome! Much more exciting than the colosseum in my opinion. At the Forum, you walk ...

    Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II

    Piazza Venezia 3, Rome 00187 Italy
    4
    43 reviews

    Best scene at night, this is an extravagant monument to the Risorgimento. Many Italians find it tacky, but there is something stunning to behold about a bit of triumphal architecture meant to rival the ancients.

    Castel Sant'Angelo

    Lungotevere Castello 50, 00186 Rome, Italy
    4.5
    84 reviews

    Castel Sant'Angelo is by far the most worthwhile attraction requiring a ticket in Rome. Not only do you get to see an ancient fortress-castle, you get beautiful views of the city and access to an art exhibition at the very top. Last but not least, you get to burn some calories. Those unable to walk well should heed this warning: ...

    This pedestrian bridge over the Tiber has a fine view of the neighboring Vatican as well as much of the rest of the city. Unlike London and Paris, which navigable rivers, very little actually goes down the Tiber but the bridge is nice.

    Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

    Piazza di S. Maria Maggiore 42, 00100 Rome, Italy
    4.5
    55 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 ...

    I once spent a few twilight hours on a bench in this magnificent round piazza. It wasn't very crowded at the time and as I sat there I marveled a bit at the irony of Rome's oldest monuments--it's Egyptian obelisks. Many were taken as trophies by Augustus after his defeat of Antony and Cleopatra at Actium.

    San Luigi dei Francesi

    Via Santa Giovanna D'Arco 5, 00186 Roma
    4.5
    8 reviews

    This is an absolute must visit because of the three Matthew painting by the Baroque painter Caravaggio, one of the great artistic geniuses of his age. An in situ viewing is a must to get the full emotional impact of the paintings depicting significant moments in St. Matthews life.
