    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 ...

    Trevi Fountain

    Piazza di Trevi, Rome 00187, Italy
    4.5
    397 reviews

    The Trevi Fountain is also a place we found ourselves stumbling upon three times during our visit-- once because we trekked there, the other two times simply because it's so damn smack in the middle of the city. During the last of these incidents, at three in the morning, we witness a man propose to his girlfriend on one knee. ...

    Pantheon

    Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Rome, Italy
    4.5
    234 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, ...

    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 ...

    Saint Peter's Square

    Piazza San Pietro, 00120 Vatican City, Holy See
    4.5
    123 reviews

    If you can get through the long lines to get into Vatican City, it's well worth a day trip. You will easily be able to get around everything there is to see in a few hours, and if you are organised to book far enough in advance, you can even get a behind the scenes tour underneath the church. Take ...

    Spanish Steps

    163 reviews

    One of the most famous landmarks in Rome and although I don't find this particular historical site the most interesting thing Rome has to offer, it is impressive.

    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.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

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

    Vatican Museums

    Citta del Vaticano, Terrasini 00193 Italy
    4.5
    117 reviews

    The Vatican Museums are a massive collection of rooms and works of art. Seeing the art is a bit difficult, we found, as you're instructed to choose a specific path to follow and are then pretty much sucked into a herd and forced to walk through them or try to brave going against the grain. We made it all the ...

    Trajan's Column

    Via dei Fori Imperiali, 00187 Rome, Italy
    4.5
    23 reviews

    This incredible column is inscribed with a spiralling bas-relief which recounts the story of the Emperor Trajan's Dacian wars. Funnily, a statue of St. Peter was plunked atop it in the 16th Century. What I really enjoy about this column is its absolute giant grandeur, as well as the knowledge that you could actually climb up all the way inside ...

    Piazza di Spagna

    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.

    The Piazza is an oval shaped courtyard designed by Michelangelo and one of the great architectural structures in Rome. It sits on top of the Capitoline Hill and is surrounded by Medieval and Renaissances palaces, one of which is now the Capitoline Museum. The statue of Marcus Aurelis sits in the Piazza, a rare surviving ancient statue. It's an exact ...

    Capuchin Crypt

    Via Vittorio Veneto 27, Rome 00187 Italy
    4.5
    15 reviews

    This succession of rooms below the Chiesa di Santa Maria Immacolata at the base of the Via Veneto is one of Rome's best secrets. Capuchin monks unearthed the bones of 400 or so of their brethren and created this multi-room sculpture/meditation on the ephemeral nature of our earthly existence. Seeing pelvic bones arrayed in fan shapes and vertebrae in trailing ...
