Best of Rome

If you’re looking for the best of Rome, you need to find out where those areas are. Many of the places come highly recommended by others who have seen the area first-hand. We can recommend the best places that are those gems you must see during your Rome travel.

Piazza Navona

This open dome-like structure welcomes everyone that is living in the area, or just passing through. Built originally in the 1st century AD, you can expect that a piece of the past is found inside the walls of this open-air plaza. 

It is worth mentioning that this is also one of the spots where you can take those impressive Insta photos in front of the once-in-a-lifetime fountains.

Sistine Chapel

Restored in the 1400’s, this is where the Pope resides. You can take a tour through the open areas of the chapel, but not towards the back which are the private living chambers of the Pope. 

The beauty of the inside and outside of the chapel is awe-inspiring and breath-taking all the same. It is a place that you must see to believe, because pictures will never do this chapel justice.

St. Peter's Basilica

Located in Vatican City, this church is one that is built with a Renaissance-style flair. You can find that the large ceilings, huge archways and impressive architecture are all it takes you make you want to step foot inside this impressive church. 

Rome knows how to make places of worship and each and every one of them is just as impressive as the next, making it an ideal place to find yourself touring, learning more about and diving into the deep Rome Italy history.

Trevi Fountain

The famous Trevi Fountain that makes your dreams come true is one of the oldest water sources in Rome. Built in 1762, this is also a piece of Rome Italy history. It is one of the most impressive sights, made from smooth, cold stone and styled to perfection. Designed by Nicola Salvi, this fountain is a piece that invokes many feelings and was used as a bath and place of gathering for years upon years. The beauty that it holds and the sacredness of the fountain make it an ideal place to go and explore.

The Pantheon

A former Roman temple, but now a church, this is a place of worship that holds a lot of value to those who live in the area, as well as those who pass through and who have lived in the area in the past. 

Built during the reign of Augustus, around 126 AD, the temple has stood ever-since, with a few small repairs and reconstructions here and there. It is a place of deep thought, worship, and history.
