If you are interested in all things ancient Roman, there are numerous archaeological sites to explore. The Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine hill are top on the list of course. You can visit Rome’s first luxury shopping centre Trajan’s markets which was nestled into the hillside, or visit one of Rome’s largest public bath houses, the baths of Caracalla. Ostia Antica, a short train ride away gives the most complete view of Roman life. It is a Roman town like Pompeii in excellent condition. See how the other half lived at Nero’s Domus Aurea and not far away, a hidden gem of a Roman apartment - Case Romane del Celio with beautiful fresco decoration. For something a little spookier and cooler in temperature, the catacombs are a popular attraction for the miles of underground tunnels dug-out by hand to bury the dead.

If churches are your thing, then you have absolutely come to the right place with over 963 to choose from! St Peter’s Basilica is the largest and most famous, but not the most important church in Rome. The papal basilicas (St Peter’s, San Giovanni in Laterano (the Cathedral of Rome), Santa Maria Maggiore and St Paul outside the walls) are important for religious visitors, as are many of Rome's churches as they hold important relics of saints inside which have been visited by pilgrims over the millennia. Apart from being houses of God for prayer and reflection, the churches in Rome are also filled with masterpieces from many great artists, from the chapels themselves to the paintings and sculptures inside them. Sant Maria del Popolo in Piazza del Popolo is famous for its artwork by Caravaggio and Bernini as is St Luigi in Francese. At St Maria della Vittoria above Piazza Barberini your breath will be taken away by Bernini’s statue of St Theresa in Ecstasy.

Many of the grand palaces of Rome also house art galleries today, these are the private art collections of the noble families of Rome. Owning and collecting art and ancient sculpture was a hobby for the rich and famous of Rome’s past and the more prestigious your collection the more important and powerful you were. Hence why the Vatican houses some of the finest artistic heritage. If you are an art aficionado, or want to learn more about Renaissance and Baroque artists and their work, the Borghese Gallery is a must as it is crammed full of masterpieces and hosts the largest single collection of Caravaggio and Bernini alongside other greats. For fans of Raphael and renaissance frivolity, the erotic frescoes and decoration in the Villa Farnesina in Trastevere should not be missed. If your tastes are more modern then the GNAM or the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art above Villa Borghese is for you.

The Sistine Chapel with its famous frescoed ceiling by Michelangelo is another must see when in Rome. The Sistine Chapel is inside the Vatican Museums which is essentially a large extended palace lived in by the popes over the centuries. Its halls and galleries represent the combined collection over centuries of priceless ancient artifacts and statues as well as some of the finest renaissance artwork spanning more than 5,000 years of diverse cultural heritage. The personal apartments of Julius II are also a highlight in the museum, known as the Raphael Rooms after their famous decorator.

Undoubtedly the top attraction in Rome is the Colosseum, which received a record 7.5 million visitors in 2019. The icon of ancient Rome, the Colosseum is famous for hosting gladiatorial combat and entertaining the ancient Romans with bloody spectacles for over 400 years. Two thirds of the ancient amphitheatre still exist, the biggest stadium of its kind in ancient times and the largest Roman monument today, the Colosseum is a must see for all ages.

This is the heart of ancient Rome and the largest inner-city archaeological site in the world. The Roman Forum was the centre of the ancient city where religious, political and commercial activities took place. For more than a thousand years this was the nerve-centre of the empire. The Palatine Hill above is where the elite and later the emperors lived. For those interested in all things ancient Roman you should not miss these sites, they are dotted with the remains of temples, basilicas, triumphal arches and palaces. The viewing platform on the top of the palatine hill has a breathtaking view of the area. Both of these sites are included in the ticket for the colosseum and are often included in guided tours. Comfortable shoes, water bottles and sunscreen are a must!
