Archeology
Colosseum: The most famous monument of Imperial Rome, inaugurated in 80 AD. Once the theater of bloody games between gladiators and ferocious animals, the Colosseum covers 19,000 square meters and was able to hold up to 280,000 spectators. It has a dense network of underground tunnels where the settings for the games were created.
The Roman Forum: Starting in the sixth century BC, this became the center of Rome’s political and social life, over the centuries it was embellished with statues and new civic and religious buildings. The Forum can be reached from Via dei Fori Imperiali.
Horti Sallustiani: These are the ruins of a very ancient Roman building owned by C.Sallustius Crispus, later enlarged by the Emperor Hadrian. The Horti contain a large circular living room with a dome above it where traces of wall paintings and mosaics can be seen.
Art
Galleria Borghese: Housed in the spectacular Villa Borghese, the gallery houses works by Titian, Rubens, Caravaggio and Bernini.
Capitoline Museums: This museum possesses the entire history of Rome documented by artifacts and artwork which testify to the glorious past of the Imperial city: ancient sculptures, bas reliefs, paintings and other objects.
Vatican Museums: An immense structure which needs a whole day to visit, the Vatican Museums include the Museo Egizio, Museo Etrusco, Museo Etnologico, Pinacoteca, Stanze di Raffaello and other minor sections.
Architecture
Pantheon: This temple dates back to ancient Rome and later became a place of Christian worship. The elegant interior with the dome at the center, decorated in fine marble contains the tombs of Raphael, Victor Emmanuel II and Humbert I.
Camipdoglio: Starting from imperial times the hill of Campidoglio next to Piazza Venezia has always been the seat of the government in Rome. Today the splendid Renaissance Palazzo Senatorio and Capitoline Museums stand on the hill.
Castel Sant’Angelo: The original building dates back to 123 AD, but it was enlarged at the end of 1200 when it became the property of the Vatican which built a fortified external tunnel to connect it with the Vatican buildings.
Churches
St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel: This is the largest church in the world with its 45 meter high facade and immense dome which dominate the city. The Basilica overlooks the scenic square designed by Bernini which accentuates the church’s grandeur. The Sistine Chapel is spectacular with its famous ceiling frescoed entirely by Michelangelo.
San Giovanni in Laterano: A massive cathedral dating back to 314, the complex houses the Church, Baptistery, Palazzo Lateranense, Sant Scala, and Hospital of San Giovanni.
Church of San Luigi de’ Francesi: Located in the square of the same name near Piazza Navona. The church contains three wonderful paintings by Caravaggio: the Crucifixion, the Calling of St. Matthew and St. Matthew and the Angel. A sight not to be missed.
