Rome is one of the worlds most visited tourist destinations. On average Rome has over 4.2 million tourists visit per year and we will take a look at what makes this location such a remarkable attraction. With historic buildings and culture it puts Italy on the map as a tourist attraction.
This magnificent structure is very recognisable being featured in many mainstream films such as ‘To Rome With Love and ‘La Dolce Vita’. The Trevi fountain is the headliner of over 2000 fountains in Rome. Over 80 million litres flows through the attraction everyday which is then recycled on to other fountains throughout the city. Many tourists use the site as a wishing well and at the end of each day over 3000 coins would be collected and donated to a catholic charity. With Neptune as the lead focus point of this phenomenon it comes as no surprise why it is named in our top 5.
The Colosseum is one of the seven wonders of the world. Built in 70AD-80AD this structure still stands tall at the heart of Rome. You can book guided tours where you will be able to walk through the gladiators gate and stand in the area where the battles took place. The arena holds a capacity of 60-80k which is equivalent to a modern football stadium, so for the time this wonder of the world was built that is quite astonishing.
3. THE VATICAN
The Vatican is a destination everyone should be familiar with. ‘The home of the pope’ which we believe everyone should see once in their lifetime. The Vatican City is the smallest country in the world surrounded by the magnificent city that is Rome. The Vatican City came into existence in 1929 and has since become a well known tourist attraction.
4. THE SPANISH STEPS
Not far from the trevi fountain is a scene known as the Spanish steps. These are are a set of steps in Rome, Italy, climbing a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinità dei Monti, dominated by the Trinità dei Monti church at the top. Located in the middle of the square you will find the ‘Fontana della Barcaccia’ another one of ‘Romes’ glorious water features.
5. THE SISTINE CHAPEL
With over 25,000 people visiting this beauty everyday it was hard to stay out of our top 5. The ceiling is a masterpeice created by painter Michelangelo Frescoes. Taking around 4 years to finish the art work you will be able to notice every little detail in this Sublime creation.
