Attractions in Rome
Full of monuments, culture, and events, Rome is a city with a lot to see and do.
You’ll also need to spend time just wandering around and soaking in the atmosphere
Enjoying its vibrancy and cuisine, and while you can start getting to know the Eternal City within a few days you need weeks to really appreciate everything it has to offer.
Unfortunately most of us can’t spend weeks at a time in a city; settling more for a short break of 3 or 4 days.
Read on to discover the must-see attractions in Rome, which you should be able to fit into a visit of 3 days.
The Trevi Fountain
Now to one of the most famous fountains in the world, the Trevi Fountain.
It’s a huge Baroque fountain that was completed in 1762 and full of beautiful features.
Tradition is to throw a coin using your right hand over the left shoulder.
They say that around 3,000 Euros goes into the fountain every day and is used to subsidize local projects.
Of all attractions in Rome, the Colosseum is undoubtedly the main sight, and for good reasons.
It’s the largest amphitheatre in the world and is considered to be one of the world’s greatest feats of Roman architecture and engineering.
It’s as iconic as the Statue of Liberty or Eiffel Tower though this was built between the years 70 and 80AD.
Once you’ve marvelled at the Colosseum, visit the museum on Palatine Hill.
Now back to an ancient landmark – the Pantheon is a Roman temple that was built to honour all Roman gods.
An earlier temple built by Augustus was rebuilt by emperor Hadrian around 126 AD, and the famous Corinthian columns have influenced many more modern buildings and monuments.
