To get a taste of what the city has to offer its visitors, in addition to the already reminded attractions, also to be reminded there are the many captivating and interesting museums found within the city, of course, the city's so popular and beautiful squares and fountains, Temple of Hercules, The Mouth of Truth, Santa Sabina, Knights of Malta, Temple of Portunus, Isola Tiberina, Quirinal Palace, Trastevere, Villa Borghese and the list could go on and on.
There are so many places to see and things to do in Rome that it is impossible for one to say that visiting the city is a boring experience. Regardless of the duration, no stay could be anywhere close to boring.
"The Eternal City", as Rome is also known, has an immensely rich historical heritage and cosmopolitan atmosphere, which are two of the things that make it one of the most influential and most beautiful capitals, and one of the most visited and most famous world-wide destinations. The city is also known for its sparkling and thriving nightlife scene, as well as for being heaven for "shappaholics", also being regarded as one of the fashion capitals of the world.
It is, arguably, correct to say that the city could be divided into two popular tourist areas: Ancient and Catholic Rome. The main areas for exploring and admiring the ruins of ancient Rome is in the Colosseo, on either side of Via dei Fori Imperiali, which links the Colosseum and Piazza Venezia, dating from the 1930's, from the time of Mussolini.
After visiting the Colosseum, visitors could, perhaps, head south to the Baths of Caracalla, and afterward, south-east on the old Apian Way, passing along the city's well-preserved historical wall, and continuing to the Roman ruins, which include the Circus of Maxentius, the Villa dei Quintili and the tomb of Cecilia Metella.
Being home to more than 900 churches, for a real Catholic religious experience, the only thing visitors have to do is just pick. Regardless of the choice, a pleasant and unforgettable experience is certain, giving that each and every church is characterized by a rich range of astonishing decor, ranging from fine classical art to tacky electric candles.
The Seven Hills of Rome are also a delight for the eyes and definitely worth checking out. Given that generation of buildings had been constructed on top of each other and the construction of tall buildings in the valley have made the hills less pronounced than they were originally, it could be a little difficult for a first-time visitor to identify them, but they're there, just waiting to be discovered and admired once again!
In fewer words, Rome is a city of love, wonder and most of all, culture and history, with more than enough appealing attractions to offer its visitors, in order to give them an unforgettable, memorable travel experience. It is part of Italy - a tourist destination extravaganza, and that says it all!
