Rome Activities and Attractions

LA DOLCE VITA Italian for “the sweet life” (You can have everything.).

There is so much to do in Rome you couldn’t possibly see it in a single visit, however here are a few things to get you started. The list could include a visit to the PANTHEON which is a stand out because it is so well preserved it looks almost the way it did 2000 years ago. It is still the world’s largest un-reenforced concrete structure. As you walk through it you are probably walking right in Caesar’s footsteps. The Coliseum, an iconic symbol of Imperial Rome, was home to brutal gladiatorial conquests and public spectacles. An architectural and engineering wonder, the Coliseum was the largest amphitheater ever built in the Roman Empire.
Rome was built on 7 hills, the main one being Palatine Hill. If you have the energy climb up you will be rewarded with views of the Roman Forum’s crumbling walls. In ancient times the forum was the economic and social hub of the city. Look down on Circus Maximus the famous chariot racing stadium that could hold 250,000 people.
