The most interesting sights in Rome

The capital of the Lazio region and Italy offers significant art and architecture on a breath-taking scale! It is one of the most stylish metropolises in Europe and is home to masterpieces from the Renaissance, Baroque and Antiquity.

Top attractions to visit in Rome

The Capitol

The “Altar of the Fatherland” in the “Piazza Venezia” is a particularly suitable starting point for a tour of Rome’s many sights. The beautiful coffee house in the otherwise rather unspectacular building offers a wonderful first view of the roofs of the capital! The building also houses the “Museo del Resorgimento“, which documents the history of the unification of Italy.

Behind the piazza is the Capitol, which was once the centre of ancient Rome. Today, the mayor has his official residence here. Two staircases allow you to approach the Capitol: the very steep one leading to the church of “Santa Maria in Aracoeli” and then the ramped staircase designed by the famous Renaissance artist “Michelangelo“. It ends at the top between the statues of the Dioscuri Castor and Pollux, the twin sons of Zeus.

In the centre of the Capitol stands the Senators’ Palace, on the right side rises the Conservators’ Palace and on the left the Capitoline Museum Palace. This is where the most important collection of ancient finds in Rome is located. For example, the emblem of the capital, the lactating she-wolf from the legend of Romulus and Remus.

The Colosseum from the Roman Imperial period

It is the most famous building of the Roman Empire! The construction of the gigantic Colosseum dates to the years 72 – 80 AD. The building measured 186 metres in length, was 156 metres wide and provided space for around 50,000 spectators for gladiator fights. The Arch of Constantine, located directly in front of the Colosseum, is considered a symbol of Rome’s downfall. Constantine erected it in 315 AD to commemorate his victory over his opponent Maxentius. Shortly afterwards, the empire was already in its final throes.

The important Palatine Hill

The important Palatine Hill on Via San Gregorio is only a few steps away from the triumphal arch. This is where the foundation stone of the Roman Empire was laid! Recent excavations reveal Latin settlements dating back to around 1000 BC. Here you can marvel at the racecourse in Domitian’s stadium from the 1st century AD, the “Domus Augustana“, the imperial palace and the palace of the Flavian dynasty. Below is the older house of Livia, the wife of Emperor Augustus. The oldest settlement remains are only a few metres away.

The “Forum Romanum

From here, a staircase leads to the “Roman Forum” through the Arch of Titus, created in honour of Emperor Titus and his campaigns. The Via Sacra runs on the left to the core of the Forum, where the Temple of Vesta is located, of which some columns and a wall remain. On the left, you can see the enormous “Basilica Julia“, the former court hall of ancient Rome. Emperor Caesar began the building and Emperor Augustus completed it. One of the best-preserved buildings on the Forum is the brick building of the Curia, the former Senate building.
