Take a tour of Top 10 Travel Attractions of Rome, Italy – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats.
Hey, this is your travel host, Naomi. I would like to show you the top 10 attractions of Rome.
Number 10: Trastevere, a perfect opportunity to get away from tourists. If you want to experience the local Roman day to day life, you will find it in the distinct Trastevere neighborhood.
Number 9: Mausoleum of Hadrian. Constructed by the Roman emperor Hadrian for himself, the building has served many functions.
Number 8: Roman Forum, among the most significant ruins in Rome today. During the time of the Roman Empire this was a bustling city center with markets, banks and government buildings.
Number 7: Spanish Steps, probably the most important steps in the world. They draw visitors from all over.
Number 6: Piazza Navona, this is a large and popular square. About 1900 years ago this was the site of a stadium which was later converted into a piazza.
Number 5: Piazza del Popolo, another historic and lively piazza of Rome. It is surrounded by beautiful structures. In Italian, Piazza del Popolo literally means people’s square.
Number 4: Trevi Fountain, a grand fountain in the heart of Rome. You will not find a more gorgeous fountain anywhere else.
Number 3: Pantheon. Constructed nearly 2,000 years ago, Pantheon is one of the most well-known historical buildings of Rome. You will find it to be remarkably preserved.
Number 2: Vatican. It has been the home of the Pope for hundreds of years. Even though it is situated within Rome, Vatican is an independent country, in fact, the smallest in the world.
Number 1: Colosseum. No visit to Rome is complete without a visit to the Colosseum, the site for the gladiator fights. It is perhaps the most important symbol of the mighty Roman Empire.
