Initially, in the northern part of the city center is the Piazza de Popolo. This square was used for events and public executions, but after the placement of the Egyptian lions in 1810, it was given another glory. It has one of the oldest obelisks in Rome. There is also perhaps the most important Renaissance church in Rome that played a major role in the development of Roman art and architecture, Santa Maria del Popolo. You should not miss the view from Pincio, a balcony point of reference of the square. Finally, there is the entrance of Villa Borghese, the ideal place for picnic, walk and has the lake that is suitable for boating.

Rome’s most famous shopping street is via del Corso. In addition to the many well-known brands that you will see in stores, you will notice that there are many special buildings and picturesque alleys. One of the alleys leads to the Spanish Steps. This is Piazza de Spagna. The Spanish Square of Rome so named after the Spanish consulate of the Vatican. The Spanish Steps were built around 1700 by Michael Angelo and are called Scalinata di Trinita dei Monti, after the church to which they lead. In the same square is the fountain of Berlin, the Fontana della Barcaccia, while the remarkable thing in the Spanish square is its hourglass shape.

The most famous fountain in the city is the Fontana di Trevi. The only sure thing is that you have to spend a day to understand the shocking construction that has taken place. However, do not miss the opportunity to spend one of your evenings, as from the illuminated fountain the statues that adorn it are as if they come to life. If you really like Rome and want to come back, then you have to toss a coin into the water of the fountain. There you will see countless tourists taking pictures, others making wishes and maybe you are lucky and see a wedding proposal live.


Rome is the sixth largest city in Europe. Its history goes back about 3000 years. The most characteristic attraction of the city is the Colosseum. It has existed on this site for 2000 years and is the symbol of the Roman Empire. It took its name from the Colossal statue of Nero that was in the same place. It had a capacity of about 45 thousand seats and its eighty gates helped to quickly fill and empty the space. The Arena has two gates. One is called Zosis Flesh and the other is the Funeral Gate. He went down in history for the bloody spectacles organized by the Senate during the time of the declining empire.

Next, do not miss the opportunity to visit the Arch of Constantine and the Roman Forum on the Palatine Hill. The first is a real masterpiece and is located a little further from the Colosseum. The Roman Forum is located on the Palatine Hill, one of the 7 hills of Rome and in fact the central one. Its history goes back in time to the founding of the city itself. Finds show that it has been there since about the tenth millennium BC. There is the church of San Bonaventura. The Agora is located between the Colosseum and the Capitol.

Below is Piazza Venezia. There is the monument of Victor Manuele II and for this reason it is called Victorian. The marble architectural masterpiece was built in the late 1800s and early 1900s. There are the statue of the king that took 25 years to carve, the statue of Freedom of the city and the monument of the Unknown Soldier.

It is the turn of the Capitol in the special tour of the city of Rome. It is one of the most historic squares in Rome. There he led by a special staircase, the Cordonato, designed by Michael Angelos. It was used in many ways over the centuries, while today the city hall is located there. The square has a special design, as Michael Angelos, leaning on the side buildings, created the illusion that the square is wider than it actually is. The richest historical attraction to visit is the Vatican Museum. National Geografic emphasizes that “to see what is inside the Vatican, you need 12 years without sleep”. Outside the museum are the courtyard of Koukounara and the golden sphere of Arnold Pomondoro. Inside there are ancient Greek and Roman statues to adorn the corridors. Crossing the main corridor, you reach the Belvedere Courtyard. In this octagonal courtyard there are statues that are considered the most important in world history. Some of them are the Apollo of Belvedere, the river god Arnos and the Laocoon Complex. As you walk through the Vatican Museum, you will realize the majestic awe of the fantastic murals on the ceilings with the incredible mosaic floors. And after a while, you will be in the most famous church in the world, Capella Sistina. This is where the hierarchical council meets to elect the Pope each time, and the white smoke coming out of its chimney marks the success of the meeting.

Italian cuisine is a delight for those planning a trip to Rome. You will not find the sophisticated shops in the center of the city but in the surrounding streets and we present them to you. At Fontana di Trevi you can enjoy baked goods as well as coffee or a drink in the evening at L’Antico Forno. Next to the Vatican do not miss the unique opportunity to taste the sweets offered by Gelateria Lemongrass at great prices. Opposite this store is the famous Panino diVino which offers the best sandwiches in town at attractive prices, with many discounts and offers.
