Must See Attractions In Rome

May 27, 2008
Roman history is rich and fascinating. As such, Rome as a city has a plethora of attractions for visitors to see. The grandeur of Rome sets it above many other destinations and tourists to the city will not be disappointed by the shear volume of sights to see and places to experience.

There are so many sights to see in Rome that it is difficult to know where to start, however there are a few attractions that should not be missed.

The ancient Coliseum is one of those sights. It took many years to build, but the completion of its building dates back to 80 AD. It was the center of Roman entertainment and was the largest and most impressive building in Rome.

St. Peter's Basilica is the largest church in the world and it is also well worth a visit. The Pantheon was dedicated as a temple to all the gods and it is an impressive example of Roman architecture. Trevi Fountain is famous for it exquisite detail.

The Forum Romanum is an excellent choice of places to visit. It contained many buildings in its heyday, ranging from temples to basilicas, as well as beautiful triumphal arches. Today it is a scattering of ruins, but it provides an impression of the greatness of Rome to see the remains that still exist there.

The Piazza di Spagna contains the Spanish Steps, as well as an obelisk and church. It provides a beautiful background to what has become a popular meeting spot.

One cannot visit Rome without going to visit the Vatican Museums. Here you will find the Sistine Chapel, the Raphael Rooms and the Etruscan Museum. The Capitoline Museum is also a world-renowned museum that houses copies of Greek and Roman sculptures. Many other fascinating museums exist in Rome.

There are many accommodation options all over Rome. Many of the most interesting monuments and attractions can be found in one area and they are easy to visit on foot. If you want a bit more flexibility, you can hire a bicycle or a Vespa (which is what the Romans ride around in). If these options are not for you, the train, bus and tram services in Rome are extensive and you should not have trouble getting around by public transport.

Visitors to the area can choose to stay in hotels, which range in quality from luxury to budget. The luxury hotels can typically be found in the area of Via Veneto. You will also find classy hotels in the area around the Aventine or near Villa Borghese Park. Budget hotels can typically be found around Termini Station. Alternatively, you can choose to stay in a bed and breakfast or even to spend the night in a Catholic convent which opens its doors to travelers. Another accommodation option is to stay in a camping site. These are well set-up; however they tend to be a bit further out of the city which makes it less convenient if you plan to spend time viewing the attractions within Rome.
