Best things to do and see in Rome

What can you see and do in Rome?

For most people, the main attraction when heading to Italy’s capital city are the ruins of ancient Rome. To embark on your own exploration, you’ll want to head to Via dei Fori Imperiali, which spans from Piazza Venezia to the Colosseum. Just a short walk from Piazza Venezia, you will find the Pantheon, which offers you the ability to step into a building that dates back to 125 AD. If you have a soft spot for art galleries and museums, start at Villa Borghese, which lies just north of Rome’s city centre. Nestled around the lake and the gardens of Villa Borghese, you will find some of Rome’s most beauty-packed art museums, including the National Etruscan Museum, the Borghese Gallery and Museum and the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna. In the latter, you can marvel at works of art from luminaries like Monet, Cézanne, Degas and Van Gogh. If you’re after a sweeping view of Rome, you won’t find any skyscrapers to satisfy your craving, so your best bet is to climb one of the famous seven hills of Rome. The most convenient to the city centre is Palatine Hill, which offers views of the Colosseum, Circus Maximus, the Basilica Santi Giovanni e Paolo, Altare della Patria and more.
