Rome Sightseeing – discover Rome monuments and museums with Italy Travels

Are you planning a trip to Rome? Here below some useful suggestions about what to see and how to organize your time in Rome.

First of all consider that Rome is a big city. Rome offers different cues to tourists. Archeology lovers can find wonderful sites to visit in Rome. Above all, the Colosseum and Imperial Forum area. This amazing zone is located in the heart of Rome. For this reason, tourists can reach it walking along Rome central roads.
At first, people attention is kidnapped by the Colosseum, the huge monument symbol of Rome. Visitors can reserve a ticket to enter the Colosseum by a quick access. In alternative, a Colosseum guided tour could be a very good idea. Colosseum tours are many.
A complete tour is the ancient Rome tour which includes the Colosseum, the Roman Forum as well as a pleasant walk along Via dei Fori Imperiali.
Another possibility is booking a tour which includes the Colosseum with its hypogeum section. This is a shorter visit but very exclusive. Actually the underground section of the Colosseum can be visited only by booking this specific tour. The third possibility is the tour including the Belevedere section of the monument. During this tour, visitors jump up to the fifth ring of the monument, the upper section of the Colosseum. Here the view of the city is really breathtaking.
This important archeological district is also famous for the presence of the Arch of Constantine and the Arch of Titus. Both are triumphal arches. They represent the emblem of the power of an emperor who returned triumphant from a war. These arches are beautifully decorated with bas-reliefs representing the emperor and his war successes.

Not only the Colosseum area but also other archaeological sites are worth to be visited when touring Rome. First the Caracalla Baths, the greatest thermal complex in antique times. Second, the Trajan markets which represent the oldest shopping centre in ancient world. The Trajan Markets are located very close to the Colosseum along the Imperial Forum road.

Similarly tourists should not miss the visit of the Vatican City and its treasures. First of all the Saint Peter's Basilica. The Vatican Basilica is the heart of catholic Church. Every year millions of tourists and pilgrims go to Rome to visit Saint Peter. For this reason the Basilica is always very crowded.
Visitors can enter the Pope's basilica through a reserved entrance booking a guided tour or the audio guide service.
No far from Saint Peter's square, there are the Vatican Museums. The papal museums house an immense art collections amassed by popes during centuries. The Sistine Chapel is part of this museum complex. Therefore visitors have to book the entrance ticket for the Vatican Museums to enter the Sistine and admire Michelangelo's frescoes.

Finally, a must-see tour of the Italian capital is the Baroque Rome tour. The itinerary includes famous roman squares and fountains. Definitely, the most world-known one the Trevi fountain. The tour moves from Piazza Navona, where there is the Four Rivers fountain by Bernini to the Pantheon. As final step, the tourists ends in Piazza di Spagna. Here the Barcaccia fountain and the iconic Spanish step are located.
