The city itself has great history, which is why there are so many things to see. Piazza Venezia is the perfect place to start your journey as it is the central square of the city. Not only is it always bustling with people, but it has fascinating ancient grounds on this square which has formed into several divided thoroughfares.

Altare della Patria is a stunning monument that would tower over you, as it stands greatly and in between Piazza Venezia and Capitoline Hill. It is a significant historic monument as it was built in the honour of the first king Victor Emmanuel, who reigned during the periodic time of a unified Italy.

Why not visit the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome? Pantheon is one of the most ancient Roman temples as it is nearly 2 thousand years old. Not only is the preservation of the building still immaculate, but it also has a central opening oculus to the sky.

Take an evening stroll and find yourself in front of the magnificent Trevi Fountain. Here is the perfect setting if you’re in the mood for romance, or just to admire the beautiful Italian architecture of the fountain that is designed by Nicola Salvi and completed by Pietro Bracci. This fountain stands tall and is known to be a famous iconic fountain globally. Not only that, but it is the largest Baroque fountain in this stunning city.
