The Italian capital always attracted travelers from all over the world. This is no wonder because Rome can offer a lot to fans of ancient culture and modern art, cuisine and fashion lovers etc. We can give you some tips what you must visit first of all in Rome.

  1. Visit the Coliseum

Every year the amphitheater is visited by about five million people. Although two-thirds of the Coliseum was destroyed he still amazes us. You will have to buy a two-day ticket to visit the arena of Roman gladiators’ battles. This ticket gives you also the opportunity to visit the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. You can avoid long queues if you buy ticket online or via Roma Pass.

  1. Absolve sins in the Pantheon

The Pantheon is the former “temple of all gods”. Now it is the Christian church. It has been preserved better than the Coliseum. There are no windows in the giant dome of the Pantheon (the biggest unreinforced dome in the world). Light comes here through a single hole at the top of the dome thus symbolizing the unity of all gods. They say that if you stand in a square right under the hole the gods will absolve all sins. All this is for free because the entrance to the Pantheon is still unpaid.

  1. Drink coffee at Piazza Navona

If you have only an hour for sightseeing we advise you to go at Piazza Navona. Something interesting happens on the square all year round – street musicians give concerts, artists draw cartoons, live statues and clowns entertain the public. In hot weather tourists and locals go to three fountains in Piazza Navona in search of coolness. It is pleasant to watch a funny bustle sitting at a table in an outdoor cafe. But the prices here are higher than in other places of the city. You can visit local stores but do not buy anything here.

  1. Throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain

Trevi is the famous fountain in which Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg had a bath in Fellini’s “Sweet Life”. Tourists believe: if you throw one coin into the fountain you will return to Rome, two – you will meet love, three – there will be a wedding, four – wait for wealth. The last is true because the city services catch about 3 thousand euros in Trevi Fountain daily!

  1. Relax in Villa Borghese

Borghese is a beautiful park in the north of Rome. You must go here if you want to have a picnic, escape from the bustle of the Italian capital or see the masterpieces of Rubens, Caravaggio, Van Gogh, Monet in the museums of the villa. There are amusement park and biopark for children with elephants, pink flamingos. In winter there is an ice rink.

  1. Visit the smallest state in the world

You have to visit the Vatican during the Roman holidays. It is necessary. In the small Vatican is a huge population density, a concentration of monuments, museums and attractions. In the Vatican there are dozens of interesting museums including the Etruscan and Egyptian museums, a library with the most ancient text of the Gospel and the Pinakothek with the works of Titian and Leonardo da Vinci.
