A trip to Rome isn’t complete without a visit to two of Ancient Rome’s most famous sites: the Colosseum & Roman Forum. The site of Gladiator games, animal hunts and even mock sea battles, the Colosseum was an integral part of Ancient Roman life. Just across the street from the Flavian amphitheatre is the Roman Forum. Another important and well-preserved ruin, the Roman Forum was the political and commercial heart of Ancient Rome.

Built in 1762, the Trevi Fountain is one of the world’s largest and most famous Baroque fountains.
