Rome is the capital of Italy and is one of the most visited places not only in Europe but also in the world. If you haven’t been to Rome, it’s time to change it. Here I have prepared for you a short list of the 20 most beautiful and most visited sights in Rome.

1. Coloseum 

Of course, the most visited monument in Rome is the Colosseum. Perhaps everyone knows the largest amphitheater in the world. In the past, it served for gladiatorial fights.In Italy you can find the Coliseum depicted on the 5-cent coin. However, few people know that today the Coliseum is a monument against the death penalty.

3. Trevi Fountain

The Trevi Fountain is perhaps the most famous fountain in the world. It is said that if you want to return to Rome again, you have to throw one coin there. This is where around 3000 euros are collected daily. Of course, this money can not be left in the fountain, so it is there in the early morning workers who collect money and donate to Roman charities.

4. St. Peter’s Cathedral

The St. Peter’s Cathedral is located in a slightly different state. That state is the Vatican and therefore the state in the state. Admission to the temple is free, but due to the excessive number of tourists you often have to stand for advice. Inside are known statues such as. Michelangelo’s Fetus or the statue of St. Peter, which is said to be lucky if you grab his right foot. Unfortunately, so many people have done that the stone has shed off and Saint Peter has almost no leg.

5. St. Peter’s Square and view of Rome

The 25-meter-high obelisk is the dominant of the square. You will have the most beautiful view of this square from the dome of St. Peter’s Cathedral. You can get there either by lift or by 323 steps. In both cases, it pays for the view.

7. Angel Castle

Angel Castle got its name after Pope Gregor the Great saw the angel above the castle and thus predicted the end of the plague epidemic. He still stands on the castle statue of an angel with a sword and also served as a papal residence or prison. Today, however, there is a national museum inside.

8. St. Paul’s Basilica

The St. Paul’s Basilica is not in the center of the city and therefore not every tourist knows it. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful building that Rome offers and is definitely worth a visit.

9. Palazzo della Civilila

Really impressive building! It is a pity that Palazzo della Civilita is so little visited by tourists, the truth is that few people really know about it. The building of this building was inspired by the Coliseum and today is home to the international fashion brand FENDI.

11. Pantheon

Pantheon is a really interesting building. Light enters the interior of the Pantheon through a large opening in the roof. It is said that when it rains in Rome, there is no water entering the Pantheon at all, despite the fact that there is no water trap at all in the roof opening. Well, I was lucky enough to be in the Pantheon just when it was raining, and I found out that it was raining inside the Pantheon, and even had to have a run-off to the water. Otherwise you will find the tomb of Raffael in the Pantheon.
