St Peter's Basilica
Originally built in 349AD and then rebuilt to a design by
Michelangelo in the sixteenth century, St Peter's Basilica is
arguably Italy's most beautiful church but is definitely its
largest, boasting an interior space of fifteen thousand square
metres which is bursting with exquisite artistic masterpieces.
The Trevi Fountain
Rome's most romantic, most beautiful and most photographed
fountain is illuminated when darkness falls, achieving the
seemingly impossible task of making it even more beautiful.
According to the legend, anyone who throws a coin into the Trevi
fountain will return to Rome someday.
Atop the Janiculum Hill above the Trastevere district of Rome,
this open square is a peaceful spot to relax away from the bustle
of the city streets and provides spectacular panoramic views of
Rome which are particularly unforgettable at sunset.
A temple to the ancient pagan gods and built almost two thousand
years ago, The Pantheon is free to enter and utterly stunning to
behold thanks to its remarkable central dome,
geometrically-patterned marble floor and vast portico built from
stone quarried in Egypt.
Set in one of Rome's most beautiful public gardens, the
sixteenth-century Villa Borghese houses an unparalleled collection
of masterpieces and sculptures by artists including Rubens,
Caravaggio and Titian.
