Explore Sightseeing in Rome
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and after a day of sightseeing you’ll certainly agree with this mantra. Start at the Colosseum, one of the most impressive works of Roman architecture. Witness the amphitheater where Christian martyrs were fed to lions and gladiators fought to the death. Next, make your way to the Roman Forum, which was the Roman Empire’s center of activity, as well as its economic hub. Be sure to check out the relics of the Forum, such as the Triumphal Arches, the Temple of Saturn and the Temple of Divus Romulus.
Even if you’re not religious, a trip to St. Peter’s Basilica will leave you in awe. It’s the largest church in the world and its interior is decorated by the work of famous artists such as Michelangelo, Bernini and Canova. These attractions hardly scratch the surface of Rome’s sightseeing possibilities, but will help you become more familiar with Italy’s largest city.
