Other important sights in Rome

The Spanish Steps and the Piazza Barberini

The spacious “Piazza di Spagna” is a popular meeting place and invites you to rest and linger with its huge staircase. The fountain in front of the stairs, the “Fontana della Baraccia”, is shaped like a ship and is a great place to cool your feet on hot days.

The staircase was named after the residence of the Spanish ambassador to the Vatican and the architect Francesco de Santis completed it in 1725. The 173 steps lead to the park of the beautiful “Villa Borghese” with a zoo and a small lake. The beautiful French church “Trinità dei Monti” is also located here.

It is near the Spanish Steps to the “Piazza Barberini.” The Palazzo Barberini, which Bernini completed in 1633, houses the National Gallery with paintings by Raphael, El Greco, Tintoretto and Titian, to name a few. This is also the start of the famous Via Veneto with the Hotel Excelsior, where film stars from all over the world have stayed.

The magnificent baroque fountain “Fontana di Trevi” is still one of Rome’s most popular sights, if only because of the film scene from Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita”. About 100 metres to the south is Quirinal hill, where the city’s families lived in luxurious homes. The “Palazzo del Quirinale” has been the residence of the President of the Republic since 1947. The square in front of the palace offers a magnificent view of Rome.
From here, in the direction of the main railway station, you can admire the monument to John Paul II on the station forecourt. The Italian sculptor Oliviero Rainaldi made the five-metre-high bronze statue in 2011.

The Trastevere district and the Via Appia Antica

On the other side of the Tiber, you come across the Trastevere district, which still represents a piece of old Rome. The beautiful church “Santa Maria” on Via della Lungaretta between “Piazza Sonnino” and “Piazza Santa Maria” is particularly worth seeing. It is decorated with beautiful mosaics, such as the image of “Mary between ten female saints.”

The Via Appia Antica at the gates of the city is certainly one of the most beautiful streets in the world and one should take time for it. Between the ancient tombstones from ancient Roman times, you stroll past umbrella pines under the azure Roman sky. The road was completed in 312 AD. Under the Via Appia, you can visit the catacombs of San Callisto deep underground. They served as burial places for the early Christians, and the tomb of the Christian martyr Caecilia is particularly revered.
