Rome is one of those must-visit cities. More than just a fascinating European capital, it is also a spectacular encyclopedia of living history. A walk through its streets will reveal beautiful architecture, hundreds of fountains, and many well-preserved sculptures. But it’s attractions are what makes it worth visiting.
Rome is home to the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Piazza di Spagna and the Spanish Steps, dozens of Catacombs, some of which date back to the first days of Christianity, and so much more! Rome is also home to Vatican City, where one can see the Pope, Saint Peter’s Basilica, and the Sistine Chapel. It’s no wonder that Rome is one of the most-visited destinations in Europe.
With so much to offer, one trip is not enough. Rome’s 300 fountains, its sculpture, its glorious panorama of ancient, medieval, Renaissance, baroque and modern art, music, food, and architecture are all part of the reason that Pope Gregory XIVs remark in the 16th century is still true today. Of the joys of exploring and discovering the city, Pope Gregory said that “a lifetime is not enough.”
