    Incredible building. This has such interesting pieces of history inside and how they created the dome blows my mind. This is definitely one for the list and should not be missed! Entry is not expensive and would only need an hour max to look around.

    If you want to avoid heavy crowds during late Spring/Summer, I suggest you go at sunrise where are there fewer people and you can get better shots of this iconic IG moment…..must experience 🤗

    Piazza Navona is one of the most amazing squares in Rome. Dating back to the 1st century AD when it was built as a stadium, today, the square is known for its beautiful sculptures and fountains. There are many charming cafes, restaurants, and shops, making it the perfect spot to relax and soak in the lively ambiance of Rome. A must visit.

    This is the crown jewel attraction of Villa Borghese in Rome. The former villa residence of the Borghese family turned museum now houses the world famous Borghese collection of artworks, sculpture and antiquities. The museum includes two floors and around 20 galleries and is considered one of the world's finest small museums, a must-see place for art and sculpture lovers.

    Reservations in advance are essential these days if you want to ensure being able to visit Galleria Borghese. We reserved a couple weeks in advance online prior to our recent trip to Rome. Tickets are sold on a time slot basis. You can still stop by and try for stand by entry, seems a few free up with each entry period.

    Allow the 90 minutes to leisurely view the galleries on the ground and upper floor. You'll see the remarkable Bernini sculptures and Caravaggio paintings on the ground floor amongst other incredible works. The gallery rooms are remarkably decorated as well with ceiling frescos, patterned walls with small niches filled with antique sculptures. Upstairs, more painting masterpieces await in more conventional museum style gallery rooms.

    Borghese is an art and sculpture lover's dream. It is an incredibly popular museum so be ready to share museum space with quite a few other visitors. Just take in what you are seeing, take as many pictures as you need and enjoy your time as much as possible. Afterwards, allow another 30-60 minutes to stroll the Villa garden and park around the museum. Its a good way to process all that you've seen and to reset for your next intended sightseeing endeavour on the day.

    This is a beautiful Basilica and worth the effort to visit. We only had a few hours in Rome as part of a port stop. Having chose the Colosseum over the Vatican, we had to pick some strategic sites and monuments within a short distance of each other. I was so thankful that I picked this stop because the interior is incredible! Take time to visit this Basilica.

    A worthwhile area of Rome to find and explore. Lots of good eating places and some decent shops. Not as crowded with people or traffic, a good area

    Remus and Romulus founded Rome here. Roman Forum is located at the base of Palatine hill. Whole view of the Roman forum can be seen from the garden area of this hill. Use Rick Steve’s direction to enter the hill after crossing from Forum entry, towards your left. Explore the area which throws light on the life 2 thousand years back. Head towards the gardens where breathtaking view of the whole Roman Forum can be seen for better perspective, after leaving the hill, enter into the Forum again to view individual structures separately.
    A must see for a history lover.

    Roman Forum The forum is a rectangular valley running from Arch of Titus near Palatine hill to the Arch of Septimus Severus near Capitoline Hill. Main road - Via Sacra or Sacred way- stretched from Arch of Septimius Severus to Arch of Titus, each arch named after the emperor who built it. First grand structure is Constantine’s Arch which represents a landmark in history, when a military battle made Christianity the mainstream religion in Rome and the entire Western World. It inspired the Roman architecture in the years to come. Ruins of various temples can be seen as you head towards Arch of Septimus Severus.
    A must visit along with Colloseo and Palatine hill.

    Well worth the entry fee to escape the crowds, get into the shade away from blazing sun and see some absolutely stunning views of Rome from the both the rooftops and from the cafe. Cafe was reasonably priced given the views it offered of St Peter’s basilica. Interesting castle. We didn’t know you could pay £5 extra per adult to go on a “secret castle tour”. Had we known we would have done that as you got to see much more of the castle than the general admission got you. I was looking for the popes marble bathroom for ages but couldn’t find it. Looking back on tripadvisor I see that you can only see that and a few other interesting things if you pay for the secret tour (max 15 persons). This is a great place for stunning elevated views of the city, a refreshment with a view and shade! Glad we visited. Our group were ages 10-72. Useful note: there are very clean toilets next to cafe.

    The Victor Emmanuel II National monument also known as the Vittoriano or Altare della Patria is a large national monument built between 1885 and 1935 to honour Victor Emmanuel II, the first king of a unified Italy, in Rome, Italy. It’s a magnificent structure from where Roman forum can be seen without the elevator too. If you want to see other parts, you can take the elevator.

    Beautiful attraction with a great view and place to relax. We had fun riding the e-bike and scooter. It’s a mini escape from the hustle of the city.

    The church is the oldest and highest ranking of the four major papal basilicas of Rome. It has a long history of making and remaking. The façade as it appears today was completed in the 18th century. The octagonal Lateran baptistery stands somewhat apart from the Arch basilica, hardly 140 metres away. A must visit.

    Centro Storico di Roma is the Historic Centre and along with the Holy See (Vatican City) encompasses the site of Ancient Rome, one of the most influential past empires upon today's Western societies. Recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site (1980), the Historic Centre of Rome is also one of the most popular city destinations for tourists in the world.

    This is where you find some of the most easily recognisable buildings, squares monuments and ancient structures anywhere. Think St. Peter's Basilica, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain.

    It is home to the Holy Roman Catholic Church and is littered with historic basilicas scattered throughout the city, including some of the largest, most beautiful and most important known to the Catholic World.

    The Historic Centre is jam packed with ruins providing evidence of the old Roman Empire, the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Baroque architecture was born in Rome and can be found throughout the Centre in many churches, historic palaces and bridges that cross the Tiber River.

    Visitors can see what seems like an endless number of fountains, open sculptures and statues. It is where you see some of the most of the finest works of Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Borromini and Bernini.

    Centro Storico di Roma is a city with layers upon layers of history. Luckily it is also a place of really good food & wine and has a fair range of accommodation types. It is also well connected to the rest of the world (two airports) and the rest of Italy (major rail stations), making it about as convenient to visit as your budget will allow.

    My suggestion, if this is your first visit to Rome, don't stay fewer than 3 nights. You will kick yourself for making the trouble to travel to Rome only to leave it so quickly. If you have been a few times and love the city, go on and stay an entire week or more, you will know from previous trips, you won't run out of things to see and places to visit.

    For me this is the most stunning church in Rome, the ceiling is glass and it is just marvellous to watch, either from down or from the mirror. It is simply incredible.
