Rome is full of wonders, old and new, and there can be a lot to see and do in the Eternal City. Take a look at just a few of our favorite must-see and -experience Roman outings! Vatican City is one of the most popular tourists sites in the world, let alone Rome. The Pope holds public blessings on Wednesday mornings when he’s in town, drawing heavy crowds to the area. The Colosseum is the iconic amphitheater dating to the 1st century A.D. where bloody spectacles were once staged, including gladiator fights, animal hunts, and recreations of famous battles. Underground tours of Colosseum show the areas where gladiators rested and wild beasts were caged. Showcasing Neptune, the god of the Sea, the Trevi Fountain is one of the most iconic tourist spots in Rome. Visitors toss coins in the fountain (back to the fountain!) in hopes of someday returning to Rome, as its legend states. Originally built as a castle and mausoleum for Roman Emperor Hadrian, the gorgeous Castle later housed popes and even prisoners throughout its long history. The building now serves as a museum, and has connection to the Vatican. The Roman Forum, with its numerous ancient temples, was once the center of ancient Rome. The ruins once stood as a major plaza of commerce and industry, as well as religious ceremonies. Part of central Rome, Piazza Popolo is one the of city's largest squares. Designed by Giuseppe Valadier, the square is bordered by the gorgeous twin churches, Santa Maria del Miracoli and Santa Maria di Montesanto, as well as Santa Maria del Popolo; built in the mid-1400s, Santa Maria del Popolo is one of the best examples of Renaissance architecture in the city. Piazza Popolo is a popular spot for strolling, and sipping coffee at the local cafes, but the scene can become even more lively at night when the numerous bars open their doors. The square is also the site of the main New Year's Eve celebration in Rome. The Panthenon is one of Rome's most famous tourist spots, sitting in the Trevi area of the city. Rebuilt in 126 A.D., the former temple was constructed to worship the many gods of Ancient Rome. One of the most iconic places in Rome, the Spanish Steps (all 135 of them) are a popular meeting spot for tourists and Romans (you can tell them apart by what they're doing -- tourists will likely be snapping a billion photographs; Romans will likely be making out). Built in the early 18th century to demonstrate the union between France and Spain (French funds paid for their construction), the Spanish Steps are the starting point of several fashionable streets, such as Via Condotti, lined by luxurious shops and gourmet restaurants. The Basilica of San Giavanni in Laterno, the official seat of the Pope, houess the holy steps which Jesus allegedly climbed to get his death sentence. Find more images of the stunning cathedral here. This eclectic quarter mixes the many past lives of European culture and architectural to provide a truly unique experience from the rest of the Eternal City. While the area is more of a "hidden gem" than other popular sites, the neighborhood was designed by its namesake architect Gino Coppedè and inspired by Greek, Medieval, and Gothic influences. Capping off the eccentric vibe is the fountain of frogs in the center of the square.
