Why Is Rome Worth Visiting?
Do you know all the attractions and beauties that Rome hides? Rome, the capital and most populous city of Italy, was the center of one of the most important civilizations of classical antiquity, the Roman Empire (hence its name).
But its splendor does not stop there! Rome was also the scene of one of the most culturally rich moments in the world scene: The Renaissance. Come on, names of artists such as Michelangelo, da Vinci, Donatello, or Botticelli will surely resonate with you.
With all this said, we can assure you that Rome is the capital of Western culture. In fact, it is one of the 20 most visited cities in the world. All the splendor of those remote times can be observed by thousands of travelers as they visit the cathedrals, museums, and even public squares of Rome, today preserved as national treasures of Italy.
Although Rome offers a large number of things to do and places to visit, in the following review we tell you the most important things to travel to Rome and the tourist proposals of Greca, so you don't miss a thing!
Most Important Attractions in Rome
There are many attractions and activities that tourists can do in Rome. In fact, it is normal if you feel that you do not have enough time to get to know the city completely.
Next, we mention the main attractions of Rome so that you do not miss the essence of the Italian capital.
The Trevi Fountain
It is a fountain of around 40 meters that functioned as one of the greatest monuments of the Baroque movement. Today different travelers leave coins in its waters to ensure their return to Rome or to make a particular wish (a new romance, marriage, etc.). Over 3,000 € is thrown into it daily! A tip: visit it first thing in the morning to get some incredible photos.
One of the busiest public spaces in Rome. There you can find all kinds of artistic manifestations, mainly architectural, from sculptures, buildings, or fountains of great cultural and historical value (such as the church of Santa Inés or the Fontana di Nettuno).
The Pantheon of Agrippa
Also known as the Pantheon of Rome or simply the Pantheon, it is an ancient temple of the Roman Empire that today functions as a church. In its beginnings, it was built as the “home of all the gods”. It is globally recognizable for its massive granite columns and triangular dome carved from concrete.
Located in the heart of Rome, the Vatican is one of the six micro-states of Europe and represents the splendor of the Catholic Church.
Its buildings house multiple world-renowned paintings and sculptures, such as the painting of Saint Jerome by Leonardo da Vinci, the statue of Saint Peter, and the sculpture of the Pietà by Michelangelo.
Approximately 26,000 tourists flock to its doors every day. We recommend that you take a full day, at least, to get to know it.
It is an amphitheater that the Roman Empire built during the 1st century at the eastern end of the Roman Forum. It functioned as the epicenter of thousands of shows, such as recreations of famous battles, plays of mythological tradition, or even the stage of public executions.
You can take a tour of its interior that takes about 1 hour. We recommend that, if you visit this ancient building, you do not miss out on the rest of the Roman Forum, an urban site steeped in Roman history and culture.
The Borghese Gallery
It is a famous art museum located in the gardens of Villa Borghese, where you can find works by renowned artists such as The Burial of Christ by Raphael, Leda and the Swan by Leonardo da Vinci, or Venus by Antonio Canova.
