Few cities have had such a profound impact on the world throughout the ages. From the ancient Romans to the Renaissance, Rome has shaped the art, culture and architecture that we enjoy today. One could easily spend a week here and not run of things to do or eat. Come see for yourself why Rome is such an enduring tourist destination. Recently, it was voted the 3rd best destination in the world by TripAdvisor.
Rome is where one of the few cities, where the things to do are endless. Unless you're staying for an extended city break, you won't be able to do everything so decide on your must-sees beforehand. Here is a brief list of the hi-lights Rome has to offer. One of Rome's signature landmarks is the Colosseum. Here you can walk in the steps of gladiators and imagine what it would be like to hear 80,000 spectators cheer you on. The pantheon is an incredible feat of engineering. Despite being close to 2,000 years old, it still has the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome. It was built as a temple to the Roman gods, but today is a well-preserved example of ancient Roman architecture. Want to visit the smallest country in the world? Then head to the Vatican located in Rome. Here you can gaze in awe at St Peter's Basilica, the Sistine chapel, and Vatican Gardens. Romantics should make sure to throw a coin in the famous Trevi fountain and admire the city views from the Spanish steps. After all that walking and sight-seeing, make sure to head to stunning Piazza Navona and grab a refreshing gelato or cocktail.
