  • The Quirinale is one of the seven hills of Rome and the location of the Palazzo del Quirinale, the official residence of the President of the Italian Republic. Originally a papal palace, it's an architectural marvel with opulent interiors, historic frescoes, and sprawling gardens, reflecting Italy's rich political and artistic heritage.
  • The backdrop to many classic films such as "Roman Holiday" and "La Dolce Vita" the fountain is the biggest of its kind in Rome. Work on the fountain started in 1732 after the Popes competition during the Baroque era to build something as beautiful as the Spanish Steps. The creator of the world famous fountain actually didn't win the contest but due to the outcry in Rome over a Florentine having won, Nicola Salvi was given the go ahead!
  • The Pantheon, a former Roman temple, is located within central Rome, within walking distance to other well known sites as Navona Square and the Trevi Fountain. Now a functional church, it is the burial place for many Resniense masters such as Raphael as well as 2 kings of Italy. The monument is very unique with a circular, Oculus roof allowing sunlight and even rain into the beautiful church. The original building was constructed almost 2000 years ago and Michelangelo was noted as saying that the design is of Angels and cannot be of human concept.
  • This site on the hill of the Spanish Steps is under the tutelage of the French Embassy to the Holy See. This imposing construction once provided a link between a part of the city that was, to a considerable extent, occupied predominantly by the French and the area below, occupied instead by a colony of Spaniards. More importantly, the steps provided an architectural space where people could meet up and relax amid pleasant surroundings. After a year of restoration work financed by luxury jeweller Bulgari, one of the most iconic and beloved places in Rome has returned to its original splendor.
  • Piazza del Popolo is one the most famous squares of Rome and it is clear to see why. The square is surrounded by 3 of the most beautiful churches of Rome, a large Egyptian obelisk surrounded by fountains and accessway to one of the picturesque viewpoints in Rome. You will also notice the imposing door of Rome, decorated by none other than Bernini.
  • The largest Basilica in the world is also home to worldwide masterpieces like the famous Pietà by Michelangelo! it even houses an underground crypt for Popes, of which can be visited. The Basilica has a big influence from Michelangelo and you can see his art work throughout. The Basilica was originally built above the tomb of the Prince of the Apostles, where the Pope visits every Christmas or Easter Time.
  • One of the best places for an overall view of the Ancient city of Rome. There are countless church tops, bell tours and monuments to admire from the second tallest hill in Rome. Surprising, the Janiculum hill isn't included in the famous "7 hills of Rome" due to its Western position and not within the Ancient Rome side of the Tiber river. The park on Janiculum hill holds hundreds of bust statues leading to the highest viewing point.
  • A quant area of Rome that has seen vast changes over the centuries. This area was home to the original Jewish Synagogue of Rome and also the oldest church of the Eternal City. During 753–509 BC it was home to "Hostile Etruscans" and once overtaken, the area was largely used by local fishermen as they took advantage of the close by Tiber river. This part of Rome was even chosen by Julius Caesar as the location for his luxury Garden Villa!
  • One of the biggest and most breathtaking monuments you'll come across while walking in the Jewish Ghetto of Rome is the majestic ruins of Octavia’s Porticus. Constructed two thousand years ago under the order of Augustus, in honor of his sister Octavia, was a monumental marble area surrounded by columns and embellished by two temples dedicated to Juno and Jupiter. The frescos that are still visible today were realized centuries later, showing us how this area was continuously used over the centuries.
  • Piazza Venezia in Rome is a central hub, known for the imposing Vittoriano monument that dominates it. This grand square marks the intersection of several thoroughfares and is rich in history, with nearby landmarks like the Roman Forum. It's a frequent starting point for exploring the Eternal City's wonders.
  • One of the new wonders of the modern world is also the largest ever Amphitheatre constructed during Ancient times was built with Volcanic rock mixed with brick and held an estimated 50-80 thousand people. It was a real hub of entertainment in central Rome, with regular shows, animal hunts and gladiatorial battles. Races were not held within the Colosseum due to the nearby Circo Massimo race track.
