Site Seeing in Rome, Italy
- Trevi Fountain
- Roman Forum & Ruins
- Vittorio Emanuele II Monument / Altare della Patria – the locals hate this white marble monument to Italy’s first King, they believe it to be too big, gaudy and ostentatious. The Corinthian columned and fountained structure still attracts attention worldwide so be sure to check it out, situated between the Capitoline Hill and Piazza Venezia
- The Colosseum – a combined ticket will get you entry into the Colosseum, Roman Forum & Ruins and Palatine Hill. Tip – Visit the Colosseum early in the morning to really take in one of the greatest works of architecture and engineering ever. Being one of Rome’s most famous sites it gets very crowded from mid morning year round.
- The Pantheon
- The Vatican & Vatican City – Another very busy site for tourists and pilgrims alike. Visit early or pre-purchase a tour/skip the line tickets to make the most of your time. Tip – There is next to no shade while waiting in line so take plenty of water, sunscreen and sun protection.
- The Spanish Steps
