Undoubtedly Rome - the eternal city - has always been a city with an enormous influence and importance on the history of the world. Needless to say, Rome is chock-full of culture. No one can deny that there are so many wonderful attractions to see in Rome that there is sure to be something for everyone. Rome has always been a city where new and old come together in surprising ways. Discover the old and the new faces of this city - miracle.

What to see in Rome? First of all, its symbol - Colosseum. Built between 71-80AD as a gift to the Roman people, was the site of many gladiatorial games and hunts. After the demise of the Roman Empire, it fell into disrepair until the eighteenth century when restoration was begun. Across from the Colosseum, you will find the Forum which used to be the marketplace and the centre for business and civic activity. It was expanded to include temples, law courts and a senate house. Unfortunately, much of the Forum has been destroyed with the passage of time or materials used to build nearby churches or buildings, but still remains a fantastic sight.

The Vatican (The Holy See) is situated on the Vatican hill, within the city of Rome and is the sole survivor of the Papal States. It comprises St Peter's Basilica and the Vatican museums. On what used to be a site of Nero's circus where chariot races and the execution of Christians took place, stands the stunning St Peter's Basilica. The Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museums are just couple of the many attractions that can be found in Vatican City. It is a city, state and country all in one surrounded by the city eternal city Rome.

Another amazing place in Rome is called Piazza Navona. The square was built on the area that used to be Emperor Domitian's stadium and still retains the oblong shape. Later the Piazza became a Baroque masterpiece with two stunning fountains designed by Bernini, the Fountain of the Moor and the Fountain of the Four Rivers, the latter being the most recognised.It is definitely is one of Rome's most impressive and popular squares.

Trevi Fountain is another one great tourist attraction. This mystical and great fountain which we remember from Fellinis La Dolce Vita is crowded with tourists and rose sellers during the day, but gets quiet and beautiful during the night. If you are lucky you will also encounter the violin player playing all the works he knows at once, at double speed, with great pleasure. Throw the coin into the fountain over the shoulder and and - so goes the legend - you're bound to return to this eternal city.
