Monuments in Rome

Rome is the city of a thousand treasures... are you ready to discover them all? Start from the first area of the historical centre of the Capital, "Rione Monti", to find exceptional archaeological testimonies as the Flavian Amphitheatre, better known as Coliseum (where the gladiators fought between life and death), the Domus Aurea, Traian's Markets and just in front of them the Roman Forum ("Rione Campitelli"), which narrates centuries of history through the remains of what was an immense empire!

With a pleasant stroll, you can reach Piazza Venezia, dominated by the colossal Victorian monument, often hosting cultural and artistic exhibitions (Museum del Risorgimento)! Going up the driveway to the left, overlooking the Forum and passing in front of the Mamertine Prison, we reach the Capitolium, the seat of the Municipality of Rome, with the famous equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius, here you might get off the staircase that leads you to Piazza dell'Ara Coeli, then walk on towards the Theater of Marcellus or get lost in the Jewish "ghetto" between ancient history and typical flavours... from there continue on by Corso Vittorio Emanuele, towards the magical Piazza Navona!

At the border of this district you will find the "Rione Trevi", so named for the confluence of three streets into the Piazza of the Crociferi, near the famous Trevi fountain, where you ought to perform the propitiatory ritual consisting in launching a coin in the fountain in order to come back to this gorgeous city!

And how much more remains to be admired in a city that forged the the architecture of the ancient world together with Athens...
