ROME
Rome (Italian: Roma, Latin: Roma) is the capital city of Italy and
of the Lazio region[2], as well as the country's largest and most
populous city, with more than 2.7 million residents.[3] The
metropolitan area has a population of about 4 million. It is
located in the central-western portion of the Italian peninsula,
where the river Aniene joins[4] the Tiber.
The Vatican City - The Vatican city is not only a truly spiritual
place but is impressive for its grandeur, art and of course
St Peters – the biggest church in the World. Also not to be missed
is the Sistine Chapel, whose ceiling is home to Michelangelo’s
mural masterpiece.
Colosseum - Known to the Ancient Romans as the “Flavian
Amphitheatre” this symbol of the Roman Empire was host to 450
years of gladiators, lion feedings and “games”. It is a truly
impressive sight.
Trevi Fountain - A beautiful rococo design, the Trevi Fountain is
the place to stir romance. Legend has it by throwing a coin over
your shoulder, into the fountain, you will return to Rome.
Pantheon - Nearly 1900 years after its construction this 2nd
century AD pagan temple to the gods is remarkably still intact.
Converted to a church in 608AD, Marcus Agrippa’s extraordinary
dome is the largest masonry vault ever built.
Spanish Steps – Nicknamed Rome’s living room, the Spanish
Steps are the perfect place to sit and people watch. Both tourists
and locals can be seen sitting and relaxing on the steps that
overlook the piazza
