With its brick walls and imposing marble columns, the Pantheon is a formidable structure with a very large dome. It contains the tombs of many famous Italian kings along with the Raphael’s tomb. It sits on the border of Piazza della Rotonda, which also houses the Fontana del Pantheon fountain. Not too far is Piazza Navona – perhaps one of the most endearing and beautiful squares in the city. Originally built as a stadium for chariot races, today it is lined with a variety of cafes on one side, making it a popular dinner spot. A bunch of artists and performers line the square during the summer months, entertaining the multiple tourists that pass by everyday. The Fontana Dei Quattro Fiumi, Fontana del Moro and the Fountain of Neptune add to the ambience, specifically at night. The gelato in the alleys behind the square is a great way to end the evening! But if you’re not done yet, walk over to Campo de’Fiori, just a few blocks away, to get to all the bars and restaurants.
Take a walking tour through the Gardens of the Villa Borghese and the Borghese Gallery to see some Bernini sculptures among other great pieces of art. The Capitoline Museums – the Palazzo dei Conservatori and the Palazzo Nuovo – also have much to tell about the history of Rome.
Plan to spend a whole day at the Vatican; St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums are all a must-see. Most people prefer taking a guided tour – these are great way to learn more about the significance and history behind all the art and architecture.
The Colosseum, perhaps the city’s most iconic feature, is extremely popular with tourists – and once you see it, you’ll immediately know why. It is centrally located and very accessible so make sure you get there early to beat the crowd. Next door to the Colosseum is The Roman Forum, a collection of ruins of ancient Roman government buildings.
Other attractions of interest are the church of Santa Maria del Popolo in the famous Piazza del Popolo or Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere at night. The Spanish Steps in Piazza di Spagna are famous for where Gregory Peck “accidentally” meets Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday and is today a popular tourist hang out. The Bocca della Verità or the Mouth of Truth is a relief carving of a man's face – stick your hand in the face’s mouth; legend goes that it closes around a liar’s hand!
If you’re looking for an apartment to rent in Rome and Lazio, don’t stress about neighborhood - with all there is to see and do in Rome, no apartment rental is too far from some hot spot or activity. Short-term rentals are more favorable in the city so you save on travel time but if you’d like to stay for a while, Rome and Lazio villas and condos are also available in the country-side not too far from the city. In June-August, homes for rent in the heart of Rome and Lazio might be a good idea as that allows you to make multiple short trips in the day with small breaks in the middle to get away from the hot summer sun.
No amount of time is enough to see this city that is so rich in art, history and monuments. So before you leave, throw a coin in Trevi Fountain and promise yourself that you will return.
