Fontana Di Trevi
You must visit Rome’s and World’s most famous fountain, Fontana Di Trevi, the most romantic place in Rome. It’s very likely to witness marriage proposals in that fountain. You should also pick your coin and throw it over your left shoulder inside the fountain as a promise that you will revisit Rome and also make a wish. It is marvelous at day and night.
The trademark of Rome, the most striking attraction of the city, stands tall for almost 2000 years and is the symbol of the Roman Empire. It got its name from the colossus, the colossal statue of Neuron, which used to be at that place before Colosseum was built. It’s enormous, it has four floors and could fit up to 45,000 people. Gladiators were fighting fearful beasts in the arena.
Next to the Colosseum is another significant landmark, the Roman Hill of the Roman Market. One of the seven hills of Rome with history and civilization that counts 10,000 years back.
Piazza del Venezia
The square of Venice with the marble masterpiece of Victor Emmanuel II build in late 1800 to early 1900.
Piazza Navona is the most beautiful and lively square with an elongated oval shape. The reason is that in this place there used to be a stadium. It has three fountains with the central and most famous called Fontana de Quattro Fiumi (The Fountain Of The Four Rivers).
A major attraction in Piazza Navona is the Sant’ Agnese in Agone Church, which completed in 1670.
Next to Piazza Navona is the Capitolio.
Piazza del Campidoglio
Capitolio is where the town hall stands. It is one of the most historic squares of Rome, Michaelangelo built the Cordonad (the stairs) that lead to the square, and he also designed the whole square. The buildings in the square have a visual trick in the design that fools you into thinking that the square is more extensive than it is.
Piazza Della Rotonda
Piazza Della Rotonda, with the imposing Pantheon, the largest Roman monument to date almost indestructible. It was built in the 1st century B.C. and dedicated to all the gods of ancient Rome (Pantheon, from the ancient Greek word “Pan,” which means Every and “Theon” which means God).
Italian Food And Drinks
Rome is an ideal place to taste Authentic Italian Pizza and Pasta, as well as also for wine lovers. Italian wines are some of the best wines in the world.
Gelato, the Italian ice cream, is the best in the world. You shouldn’t miss the chance to try it no matter the season you visit Italy.
Coffee time. An institution of Italy is coffee. It’s no surprise or coincidence that espresso and cappuccino were born in Italy. You must surely try this delicate taste with cornetti (the Italian croissant). The Italians discovered espresso because they couldn’t wait until the French coffee was ready. So quick coffee (espresso) was the answer. Cappuccino got its name from the Italian monks, the Cappuccini.
The Vatican Museum
The Vatican is where the Pope lives. The Vatican is a different state. Vatican museum tour is something you must do while in Rome. See the vast Roman Pine Cone as well as the Sphere of Arnaldo Pomodoro. The Vatican museum is the place where you will find to admire ancient Roman and Greek statues inside the museum.

Beautiful mosaic floors and even more amazing painted ceilings that give magnificent awe to the space that surrounds the visitors. It’s the farthest gallery of the Vatican, paintings, and architecture at its most elegant, all the way to the Sixteen Chapel.
Capela Sistina or Sixteen Chapel is the most significant and historic chapel in the Vatican City, with the most exceptional projects on the roof “The Creation” and the “Second Coming”, projects of Michaelangelo. Artworks that you should see at least once in your lifetime.
Pro TIP: At the official website of the Vatican museum there’s an app that lets you see the 3D interior of Capela Sistina but there is no comparison at seeing it up close and be speechless in awe.
Saint Peter's Basilica
Of course, one of the most amazing things to do in the Vatican is to visit the Basilica of St. Peter, the seat of Catholic Christianity. You can go all the way up to the dome and reach the rooftop of St. Peter, just 300 stairs to the top, but the reward is fantastic. A perfect view of the Vatican square and Vatican City.
