Tourism in Rome
Expecting all the wonders of Rome to fit into this small space would be a crime but it would be appropriate to mention some of the more essential places one should try to see in Rome, such as Piazza Navona, where you will find Berninis Fontana dei Fuimi and the Fontana del Moro, along with la Fontana del Nettuno of Giacomo della Porta and Saint Agness Church in Agone, Borrominis Baroque piece. Near the square of la Rotonda, one is within walking distance of the Pantheon. Built by Hadrian, one of the five good emperors, between the years 119 and 128, it contains a beautiful dome that houses the tomb of Rafael. Near Via del Corso is Romes most famous and majestic fountain, la Fontana de Trevi with Neptunes statue in the centre of it.
Another interesting thing to do is to admire the view of the rooftops of Rome from the stairs of Piazza di Spagna and sit down there, like the rest of the Romans do, to chat or contemplate Berninis boat-shaped fountain.
Then cross the Tiber over the SantAngelo Bridge and enjoy the view of the Vatican hiding beyond the river together with SantAngelos Castle. The castle was built in the year 130 and has been since used as a mausoleum, fortress, prison, papal residence and is now the National Museum of the Castle. Nearby is the Vatican City with the impressive St. Peters square behind it and its perfectly synchronised columns, with the majestic Basilica of St.Peter that rises up with its famous dome and Michaelangelos La Piedad. In the palace of the Vatican lies the Sixtine Chapel, with Michaelangelos grandiose fresco representing Genesis plastered on the roof.
As a true example of Ancient Rome, there is no better place than the gigantic Coliseum, the Empires largest amphitheatre with a capacity for 50,000 people, where gladiators fought. The Coliseum has four floors and 80 arches separated by Ionic Doric and Corinthian columns on the first three floors and an undergound maze.
