Rome Tourist Attractions
This travel destination is not for the people who want to stay indoors and rest. This is a very busy and active place that wants you to get up and go visit places. If you want to see the work of Michelangelo and Botticelli you could go to the Vatican and Sistine Chapel.
One of the most popular sights of Rome is the Fontana di Trevi which is a big water fountain placed on a small square. This fountain displays the sculpture of Neptune with Abundance and Health in which people throw coins for luck and to return to Rome once again in the future.
This travel spot also has places to visit for the people who want to come in contact with Christianity. St. Peter’s Basilica is the perfect place to go if you want to experience the Christian spirit. This structure I filled with paintings and frescoes from the Christian religion. If on the other hand, you are a fashion person, visit the Spanish Steps that holds fashion show once a year in the summer.
When visiting this travel destination, you will probably not be in need of a car. The best way to go and visit places is by food since Rome is not a big place and everything is together. If for any other reason you need to take a bus-don’t worry. Trains run every 7-10 minutes and subways are great for short destinations. Taxies all available 24/7, but the train is the most economical way to get around Rome.
The Colosseum
I’m sure that all of you have at least heard about this monument in Rome. This is by far the most visited and biggest in the Roman world started by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavia family and opened in 80 A.D. by his son Titus. The opening ceremony for the Colosseum lasted 100 days filled with gladiator fights and shows with animal sacrifice. One of the most amazing parts of the opening was the naumachias that are battles that were held in water to replica the old times.
This amazing travel destination is in the Lazio region in central Italy that originally was developed on hills next to the Tibet River. The amazing topography is that Rome was built on seven hills crossed by Tibet and Aniene River. Rome is a small place with a lot of history. The altitude of central Rome reaches high into the 500 feet above sea level at Monte Mario but it is as low as 43 feet at the base of the Pantheon. Together with the center, the stores, and the parks the total area of Rome is about 496 square miles, so small when compared to other tourist destinations but so rich with history and monuments that is definitely worth visiting.
