The Capital of Italy is the epicenter of the Catholic Religion and a destination of pilgrimage. It is also the only city in the world that has a foreign State within its boundaries: The Vatican City that is ruled by the Pope. For that reason, Rome is known as the Capital of two States.
It is also known as "The Eternal City" because it seems time has stopped centuries ago. It is the city with the largest amount of historic and architectonic goods in the world. Its impressive monuments and ancient archaeological remains make you feel like you have traveled back in time to the golden ages of the Roman Empire.
You cannot miss the Circo Massimo, located between The Aventine and The Palatine Hill. In this place, many public games were played and many shows such as horse races, for instance, were held here. Another "must" in your bucket list is the Sacral Area, which is the place where the ruins of the oldest roman temples are located.
Walk around its beautiful squares like Piazza Navona: baroque and elegant; Piazza San Pietro: one of the most beautiful squares built by Bernini in the mid-XVII Century; Piazza Spagna: one of the most visited spots in Rome due to its giant staircase; Campo dei Fiori: one of the main squares in Rome, well-know for its market and Piazza del Campidoglio: located on top of the Capitoline Hill, it's the first modern square in Rome.
It is also a must to admire its fountains as the incredible Fontana di Travi, the biggest and most beautiful in Rome.
Moreover, Trastevere is a neighborhood you cannot miss, a quite and bohemian area that make it one of the nicest in the city.
