A short walk and you are standing before the most imposing sight in Rome - the Colosseum - built by the Emperors of the Flavian Dynasty. Follow on to view the Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain and then visit the mystical Piazza di Spagna - the Spanish Steps - this square is formed from two triangles that meet at the points - the fountain is built in the shape of a boat and at the top of the steps sits the church - this scene is a monument in itself and is a favoured place for romantic couples and especially marriage proposals.
Piazza Venezia is where the four main roads of Rome converge and is the home of the palace built for Pope Paul II. Monuments, museums, churches, theatres and Roman remains fill the city, entwined with cobbled streets that hide enchanting courtyards and secret gardens. Explore as much as you can but one visit will never be enough for Rome.
Modern day delights include shopping - with three main commercial centres and an abundance of exclusive shops - head for Via Veneto and Trastevere where you will find the jet set and perhaps a Hollywood star.
Trendy cafe bars and restaurants are strewn all around the squares and streets so take your pick, order a Macciato and simply watch the world go by.
Festivals, fireworks, parades, processions, dance, film and theatre are all for the taking - all year round - enjoy!
