Rome is widely recognized as the world's greatest historical city, with architectural monuments and treasures spanning almost 3,000 years. Nowhere else will you find such a surfeit of artistic riches, from the grandiose ruins of ancient Rome to the glories of the Vatican.
The ColosseumThe largest monument of imperial Rome in existence, an amphitheatre where gladiators fought to the death with wild beasts. It is Rome's number one landmark and its distinguished arches and intricate facades are a symbol of classical times.
Basilica di San PietroOne of the most famous Christian churches in the world, the spiritual capital of the Roman Catholic faith and the focus of Vatican City. This stunning building is testament to the genius of Michaelangelo, the architect and sculptor.
Vatican MuseumThe largest, richest museum complex in the world, boasting over 1,400 rooms. Sculpture and paintings spanning more than 3,000 years are housed here. The Sistine Chapel is a breathtaking structure which attracts 20,000 visitors daily.
PantheonA beautifully preserved Roman monument, built in 27BC in honour of the heavenly Gods. Once a Pagan temple and now a Christian church, it's famed for the large oculus in the dome, which allowed worshippers to directly meditate on the heavens.
Trevi FountainImmortalized in Federico Fellini's 1960 film La Dolce Vita, the Trevi Fountain is the most photographed fountain in the city of Rome. With its baroque architecture, cascading water, faded rocks and wide basin, it cannot fail to impress.
Villa BorgheseA popular park, once the private estate of Cardinal Scipione Borghese, and a perfect antidote to the turmoil of Rome's busy streets. The park is home to the Museo e Galleria Borghese, numerous churches, a zoo and beautiful lakes.
