Rome is home to 3,000 years of monuments, a genuine relic that will surprise you with its huge artistic wealth. The tourist offer is so wide that deciding what to visit in Rome often results in a difficult but exciting work.
During a trip to Rome it is essential to visit the ruins of ancient Rome. If you chose the more touristic option you can not miss the Forum and the Colosseum, two of the most representative monuments of the Italian city. In Ostia Antica you will see and walk around the ruins of a village that has been preserved over the centuries, its amazing amphitheater, ancient public baths, mosaics, temples, villas and more.
To know a city to the full you have to visit its museums, and in Rome this task is a real pleasure. The Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica (located at the Palazzo Barberini and Palazzo Corsini), features works by Raphael, El Greco, Titian and Giovanni Baglione, among many other artists and it is one of the most respected and well-known in the area. Through artistic performances you will see how the culture of Italy has changed to become the beautiful mosaic that it is today.
Then there are the Capitoline Museums, located in the Palazzo dei Conservatori and Palazzo Nuovo, which form the main town civic museum of Rome and a must if we want to know the Roman culture. You can also visit the Baths of Diocletian, the most famous baths of ancient Rome.
On the other hand, if you have time and you feel like it, you can go to see the Circus Maximus, Trajan's Column or the Pantheon, some of the symbols of the city, sights you have surely seen on cards or photographs, but they are much more impressive once there.
If you want to see buildings and great architectural works in the Italian capital you will find many churches and basilicas that will leave you breathless. Still, the most famous and most important is the Basilica of San Pedro. It is the world's largest Christian church and, although the interiors are extraordinarily beautiful, the views from the top give you a unique view of the city.
Rome is known as "the city of seven hills", what better than getting to the top of one of them and have a meal enjoying the views. For less than 1 € we can use a monocular to see the Vatican, the Pantheon and the rooftops of Rome’s centre.
