An enticing mix of breathtaking art, ancient ruins, and vibrant street life, Italy’s passionate capital city is one of the most inspiring and romantic places to visit. This historic metropolis is an exhilarating spectacle of ancient icons like the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, and the Colosseum. It’s also home to extravagant basilicas like St. Peter’s Basilica, a towering example of Renaissance architecture. CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.

1.Campo de Fiori

Campo de Fiori is a flourishing open-air marketplace that draws throngs of tourists to its colorful stalls offering everything from produce to flowers to backpacks. But the most interesting point about Campo de Fiori is a central statue of 16th-century friar Giordano Bruno. This forward-thinking philosopher was martyred for believing the universe is unlimited. After a seven year trial, Friar Bruno had a spike driven through his tongue and was burned at the stake on orders of Cardinal Bellarmine. Bruno never recanted. The brass statue of the friar with bowed head faces the Vatican, which has never removed his heretic status.

Casina Delle Civette

Casina Delle Civette, Rome’s fairytale castle, was built by nobleman Giovanni Torlonia as a retreat for his recluse tendencies. What started as a Swiss Hut tucked away behind a hill at Villa Torlonia in 1919 morphed into his Art Nouveau dream mansion. A mix of medieval themes and stained glass windows depicting owls, plants, flowers, and other birds characterize the beauty of this whimsical castle. Before his death in 1938, Torlonia lived in seclusion in his magical world while renting the rest of his villa to Mussolini for one lira per year. This restored castle is a must-see.

Arguably the most thrilling of Rome’s ancient sights, the 50,000-seat gladiatorial Colosseum should be on every traveler’s bucket list when visiting this city. The amphitheater, once opulent with Corinthian, Doric, and Ionic pillars wrapped in travertine, marble statues, and ornate pilasters was abandoned to ruin when the Roman Empire fell during the 5th century. At its height, thousands of animals were slaughtered by gladiators for the entertainment of the Romans. Structurally amazing, the Colosseum’s interior held a wooden floor arena covered in sand for soaking up blood, a cavea where spectators sat, and a podium where the VIP sat. Security is intense, so visitors should check the website for regulations.

Located in Villa Borghese, the third largest public park in Rome, Galleria Borghese is a world renowned museum known for its iconic works by Bernini and Canova.

Sculptures are mainly found on the first floor while the paintings are typically housed on the second floor. The latter features notable works by several masters like Rubens, Titian, and Raphael.

Galleria Sciarra

Galleria Sciarra is a hidden gem located just a few feet away from the chic Via del Corso and the legendary Trevi Fountain. This relatively unknown courtyard has the ability to transport visitors to the peak of the Art Nouveau movement with its brilliant colors and stunning frescoes. Constructed for the influential Sciarra family in the late 19th century, it was originally meant to be a shopping mall, however that never came to fruition. Today, visitors are encouraged to visit the courtyard to view the colorful frescoes of men and women encircled by graceful, curling floral designs. Painted by renowned artist Giuseppe Cellini, the artwork was intended to honor women and celebrate their various stages of life.

The last home of legendary poet John Keats is now the memorial and museum known as Keats Shelley Memorial House. It is dedicated to his life and the life of his contemporary, Percy Bysshe Shelley. The museum displays a variety of artifacts and memorabilia from both Keats and Shelley as well as numerous other works by notable poets from the Romantic Period. This includes a library with more than 8,000 works of Romantic literature. The room that contained Keats’s death bed was also preserved and recreated as a shrine to the tortured writer who endured much pain before passing away from tuberculosis at the young age of 25. A small movie room shows an introductory film when guests enter the house.

Built on the remains of an old Roman bath in the 16th century, the Meridian Line of the Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels and the Martyrs was an act of one-upmanship. Commissioned by the pope, the meridian-aligned sundial was a Gregorian victory over pagan time keeping. Its location in the basilica was chosen for numerous practical reasons including the structure’s southern position, historic architecture, and high ceilings. The clock still works today, every day the sun lines up perfectly with the hole in the ceiling of the basilica casting a light that lands on the line precisely at noon. It can also determine the time of year based on where the light falls on the line.

Constructed in 125 A.D., the Pantheon is the most complete ancient building in Rome. Inside, there are monumental tombs fixed into the walls including that of renowned artist Raphael. Most often praised for its concept of space and architectural feats, this 142-foot by 142-foot structure looks like a perfect sphere resting in a cylinder. Its only source of natural light comes from the opulently designed dome featuring a round opening in its center, spanning 27 feet in diameter. Nestled in the center of the Ancient City of Rome, it is nourished by a few narrow lanes and the Piazza della Rotunda, an energetic square situated in front of Pantheon filled with restaurants, cafes, and bars, as well as occasional live music.

Situated in the heart of Rome, Piazza Venezia is a lively square located at the end of Via del Corso, and just a short walk to many of the city’s most prominent attractions like the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, and Capitoline Hill. Unlike many Roman piazzas known for being tranquil and relaxing, this square is dominated by chaotic traffic. With that said, it does feature some of the city’s most iconic sites including Il Vittoriano, a landmark monument dedicated to the first king of Italy, King Victor Emmanuel II. Additional famous buildings found at Piazza Venezia include Palazzo Venezia, Palazzo Generali, and Palazzo Bonaparte.

Pyramid of Cestius

After conquering Egypt in 30 BC, Egyptomania began to overtake Rome with numerous artifacts and copies erupting all around the city. Among them were two pyramids; the only one that remains is the 120-foot-tall Pyramid of Cestius. It was originally built for a wealthy Roman about whom not much is known, except for an inscription located on the pyramid’s southeast side. It was documented in his will that the pyramid, made of cement and brick covered in white marble, was completed in 330 days. Stories during the middle ages claimed the two pyramids were tombs of Remus and Romulus, the founders of Rome. The best access is from the Protestant Cemetery on the northwest side.

Located in the northern part of Rome in the Trieste District, Quartiere Coppede is an unexpectedly bizarre area boasting a fantastical mix of architectural styles. Created in 1919 by renowned architect Coppede, the 101,706-square-foot Quarter features a mishmash of Roman Barroque, Ancient Greek, Medieval, Mannerist, and Art Nouveau structures. A Venetian palazzo embellished with external frescoes and mosaics, Florentine towers, and a sundial are just a few of the structures and design features showcased here. There is even a musically decorative building with an exterior boasting carving and ironwork of musical notes. Its unusual whimsical atmosphere has made it a popular setting for many movies including Inferno, by Dario Argento.

Roman Forum

Situated in the same archeological area as Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum offers a peek into the ancient Roman Empire. The Forum served as the marketplace of Rome, and the center of social and political activity. It was later used as a gathering spot for gladiatorial matches, triumphal processions, and criminal trials. Some of the most ancient and important buildings in the city surround it. Today, it is a mass of ruins with various temples and shrines, including the House of the Vestal Virgins. Some of the oldest monuments found here date back to 6th-century BC, the time of the first Kings of Rome.

Santa Maria della Concezione is a unique Roman burial site. After leaving the friary of St. Bonaventure in 1631, a large group of Capuchin friars settled at Santa Maria della Concezione, a place that only contained a crypt and a church. They were told by the Pope’s brother to bring the remains of their deceased friars along, so all of the Capuchin friars would be in one place. Instead of burying the remains of their dead brethren, the Capuchin monks decided to use their bones to decorate the walls of the crypt. The bones of approximately 4,000 Capuchin friars, who passed away between 1528 and 1870, are still adorning this Roman crypt.

Visitors who need assistance can use the lift near the Metro Station to take them to the top.

Uncovered in 1931 during Rome’s fascist-era building planning, The Mithraeum at Circus Maximus is one of the biggest secret Mithraic temples in the city. The temple dates back to the 2nd century. It showcases five parallel chambers connected to a central sanctuary that features paved white marble and two alcoves for the statues of Cautopates and Caute. Although several Mithraic temples have been discovered in London, France, Germany, and Hungary, not much is known about this ancient movement that was popular from the 1st to the 4th centuries. The cult died out once Christianity took hold at the end of the 4th century, but today these subterranean spaces, dedicated to the god Mithras offer some insight into this once hidden sect.

Located in the heart of Rome, Trevi Fountain is the most famous fountain in the city and a popular must-see tourist attraction. Originally constructed in 19BC at the end of an aqueduct, it was designed to bring water to Rome from roughly 13 miles away. It took three centuries to complete the fountain, most of which was created by Roman architect Nicola Salvi. Today, the fountain’s design is a large basin with a semicircular shape sunk just a little below pavement level creating a natural amphitheater for visitors to enjoy. The fountain’s main attribute is a symbolic living scene of Neptune, god of the sea.

Zuccari Palace
© Florence/

Zuccari Palace is perhaps the most bizarre, quirky, and downright hilarious building in Rome. Created in 1590 by legendary Baroque artist Federico Zuccari, the palace is most notably known as the Monster House. This is due to the giant monster faces featuring wide gaping mouths that look to be in the process of swallowing all of the palace’s windows and doors. Inspired by the Gardens of Bomarzo in northern Lazio, Italy, Zuccari built the palace as a studio for himself and his children. Both architecturally praised and criticized, the palace was a celebrated locale for aspiring artisans. Today, it is the home of Bibliotheca Hertziana - Max Planck Institute for Art History.

Via Appia Antica

Via Appia is an ancient 2,300-year-old road spanning nearly 348 feet from the center of Rome to Brindisi. Built in 312 BCE, it was constructed and named after Appius Claudius Caecus, a politically powerful and wealthy Roman. The road exists much as it originally did. Perfectly cobbled, it’s equipped with stones fitted so tightly that it would allegedly take a knife to pry them apart. Initially meant to provide supplies and armies across the empire, its use was expanded when construction concluded. Many wealthy Romans’ tombs can be seen alongside the road, and after Christianity took hold of Rome, catacombs were built beneath a large portion of the road to use for Christian burials.
