Best attractions to visit in Rome

11. Fontana Di Trevi - Rome view 360

360 virtual tour
Fontana Di Trevi

When in Rome, do pay a visit to Fontana Di Trevi. This beautiful fountain is situated at the end of Aqua Virgo, and was constructed in 19 BC by Emperor Augustus’s son-in-law, Agrippa. One distinctive feature about the fountain is its size, as it is 65 feet wide and 85 feet high, and is the biggest fountain in the city. Trevi’s design has been changed several times since it was initially built, and the fountain is shaped like a triumphant arch, which occupies more than half the square. The main figure is Neptune, which is located right in the center and is the god of the sea. He is seen riding a chariot that is being pulled by two sea horses. On the left side of the figure, there is a statue which represents Abundance, whereas the statue on the right represents Salubrity. One thing that you should know about Fontana Di Trevi is that people visit the fountain to throw coins. You have to toss the coin with your back towards it, and you are not supposed to look behind while tossing. The monument is iconic and has appeared in several movies like When in Rome, Three Coins in the Fountain, and Roman Holiday.

17. Castel Sant Angelo - Rome view 360

360 virtual tour
Castel Sant Angelo

Castel Sant Angelo is one of our favorite sites in Rome, simply because of its great history and unique construction. When you're roaming around Rome, you will notice a tall cylindrical building that seems a bit grander than anything around it. This was the tallest building in Rome when it was made. The original name of this place is The Mausoleum of Hadrian as it was constructed upon the orders of Hadrian, the Roman Emperor, to serve as a mausoleum for him and his family. Later on, the building was used as a fortress at times, a castle by some popes, and even a prison once. Castel Sant Angelo is very popular with tourists due to its illustrious history, and for offering some of the best views the city has to offer. The castle and its surroundings are some of the best photo op places in Rome. You can always visit Castel Sant Angelo during the day; however, we would recommend going here before sunset and just spending a few hours here. The castle is at its most beautiful during sunset and the lighting on it at night makes it look magnificent.

Pantheon

The Pantheon in Rome is one of the most widely respected works of architecture that has been preserved. The building is as old as 126 AD (it may be even older - that is the first record we have of it), and is so legendary that you will find imitations all around the world. It is a very popular tourist attraction, and it is easy to see why it is lauded and loved so much. It has immense historical value, and its high level of preservation and constant use have lead to it being internationally known. The building has been used as a church for St. Mary since the 7th century. You will find many imitators of the Pantheon all over the world. The Pantheon in Paris, for instance, was made in 1790 and has become an important historical site in its own right. Inspirations from the pantheon are seen in many buildings all around the world, generally educational institutes or government buildings. The arched interior of the Pantheon is grand and beautiful. We would highly recommend visiting this place if you're in Rome, as it is one of the must see sites of the city. We would recommend going here during the day as the 'Oculus' allows the light to enter the Pantheon in a special way, a marvelous feat of ancient engineering and ingenuity.

Piazza Venezia

If Rome has a heart, then it must be Piazza Venezia. This is one of the central squares of the city, and is located near the middle, and has intersections with some of the most popular streets of the city. The buzz here is fantastic, and the markets are great. The view is even better. The piazza is surrounded by fantastic buildings and monuments. This is the times square of Rome, and if you are a tourist in this city then you absolutely cannot miss this place. The Vittorio Emmanuele II monument is the most imposing site at the piazza. Built in 1925, the monument is huge, and gives a beautiful background to the Piazza Venezia. The Capitoline Hill is also located right on the piazza, and so is the Forum Traiani. This piazza is filled with sites you would want to take pictures of, and we would recommend coming here again at night as well. During the day time you will get so see the great local life, and busy markets and vendors. During the night you will be able to see the splendor around the piazza in all its glory, as all the monuments and buildings around it are tastefully lit.

20. Altare della Patria (Monument Of Vittorio Emanuele II) - Rome view 360

360 virtual tour
Altare della Patria (Monument Of Vittorio Emanuele II)

Altare della Patria (Monument Of Vittorio Emanuele II) is one of the many beautiful monuments in Rome, one whose construction is quite recent compared to most other monuments though. Completed in 1925, it was made to in honor of Victor Emanuel, as the name suggests, the first person to become king of the newly unified Italy. It is a popular attraction, and it stands out from its surroundings. This is because of the special marble used to make the monument, which is very white in color, giving the monument a contrast from the surrounding buildings, which are mostly brown. When you visit the monument you will be surprised by the beauty inside of it. There is a perception that the exterior of the monument is ‘boxy’ and does not feature enough style; however the insides of the monument are a whole other story. The statues and the columns inside Altare della Patria (Monument Of Vittorio Emanuele II) monument are amazing works of art. There is even a museum in the base which has a display related to the unification of Italy. A new, and very welcome, addition is the panoramic elevator, which allows tourists to visit the roof of the monument and get a great view of Rome.
