Sample with me some of the best that Rome has to offer in the photos and text below. Let’s start with some of Rome’s earliest landmarks, the Colosseum,
and the Pantheon, one of my favorite buildings in the world.
Even its interior is spectacular and well-preserved.
The most famous fountain in the world can be found in Rome. The Trevi is huge, playful, and refreshing, and it is constantly surrounded by tourists.
Another cool fountain can be seen at the base of the Spanish Steps, one of the city’s most popular gathering places.
My favorite square in Rome is the Piazza Navona, a large oval-shaped area containing three (3) fountains, lined with restaurants and shops and always crowded with visitors.
Hadrian’s Tomb, known as the Castel sant’ Angelo, is a prominent structure on the Tiber River. It was used extensively as a set in the movie, “Angels and Demons.”
Vatican City, in its entirety, is contained within the city limits, but I will cover the Vatican in a later post, as a separate entity.
