Rome, Italy’s capital, is a sprawling, cosmopolitan city with nearly 3,000 years of globally influential art, architecture and culture on display. Ancient ruins such as the Forum and the Colosseum evoke the power of the former Roman Empire. Vatican City, headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, has St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums, which house masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes.
History is certainly Rome’s strong point. The city is around 3,000 years old – one of the oldest in the world – and was long the capital of the mythic Roman Empire. Because of this rich history, the city has an equally rich selection of ruins, historical buildings and more. Here, you can picnic inside ruins once occupied by emperors!
Art and culture are also the city’s strong suit. There are lots of galleries, museums, theatres and so on throughout the city – perfect when accompanied with a flavourful meal and a bottle of wine at one of the city’s enormous range of restaurants.
This mighty structure is one of the most renowned and iconic landmarks in the world and a trip to Rome would not be complete without visiting the Colosseum.
Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum was constructed between 70-80 AD and at its peak was estimated to hold 80,000 spectators.
This building was used to hold game, gladiator tournaments and other forms of entertainment and would regularly be attended by the Roman Emperors.
Located to the south west of the main terminus train station, the Colosseum is easily accessible and has a metro station in close proximity.
Marvel at this famous structure from all angles, and ensure that you brave the queues and step inside to truly appreciate the enormity of this ancient place of celebration.
