Getting to know and discovering Latium is like leafing through a history book; each page is connected to the other by a series of events that left their mark. This is Rome, the “eternal city” in the eyes of visitors; it includes a series of traces to follow to reconstruct the course of history. Rome may overwhelm you with its abundance of culture and history, the opulence of the Vatican, numerous imperial temples, early Christian churches, medieval bell towers, Renaissance palaces and baroque basilicas. If your time is limited, a good approach to visiting Rome is by focusing on the most important sights and its various quarters.our villas and apartments in Rome ›
Rome is the eternal city, full of charm and impressive monuments, a beautiful tourist destination like few other cities in the world. Piazza Venezia can be regarded as its central core with the unmistakable Vittoriano monument, and is connected to Via Dei Fori Imperiali, from where you can see in the distance the silhouette of one of the world's most famous monuments, the Colosseum, symbol of Rome. Another road that branches off from Piazza Venezia is Via del Corso, nestled in the streets on the right, are Fontana di Trevi and Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps), famous for its Trinità dei Monti stairway. Climbing the 135 steps that make up the stairway one reaches the Pincio, finding Villa Medici and Villa Borghese, the third largest park in the city that contains the lake garden with the Tempio di Esculapio, Piazza di Siena and the Museo e Galleria Borghese. Also the Pantheon can not be missed, an ancient temple dedicated to all gods, today the shrine of the Kings of Italy and house to the tomb of the famous Raphael Sanzio. Not far away is the spectacular Piazza Navona with the famous Fontana dei Fiumi by Bernini.
Around this area are located churches and monuments of great importance, such as the Chiesa di Sant’Ivo alla Sapienza, a baroque masterpiece and mature work of Francesco Borromini; San Luigi dei Francesi, with masterpieces by Caravaggio; Palazzo Altemps, branch of the Museo Nazionale Romano, which displays historical collections of ancient sculpture; the Chiesa di Santa Maria della Pace, with frescoes by Raphael and the beautiful Chiostro del Bramante (Cloister of Bramante).
