A trip to Rome is incomplete without visiting Colosseum. Built between 70 - 80 AD, It is one of the great iconic landmarks in the world. It was used for gladiator tournaments, games, and many other types of entertainment during the Roman empire and has the capacity of holding 50 to 80 thousand spectators.


Today the massive architecture is the first choice among travelers. Approx more than 6 million tourists visit Colosseum every year and in 2007 it became one of the 7 wonders of the world. Along with the 7 wonders of the world, it is also an engineering wonder.


It has gained so much popularity that you will find Colosseum always crowded. Long lines for the ticket counter are always there and to avoid long-standing queues, please book an advance online Ticket or Guided Tour and save your time, money, and energy.


To explore Colosseum and Roman Empire history we recommend you to Book Guided Tour or Book Rome Colosseum Tickets.



Trevi Fountain


It is one of the most beautiful and stunning fountains in the world. It is a perfect example of Baroque design and it is also the largest Baroque fountain in Rome with a height of 26.3 meters and 49.15 meters width.


Built-in 1762, Trevi Fountain pays tribute to the God of Roman Oceanus and it became a tradition to throw coins with a right hand and over your shoulder to water for good luck.


Sculpture and facade artwork is truly magnificent. At night you will get the best view of this beautiful fountain.



The Pantheon


The Pantheon is one of the preserved ancient Rome buildings. It was a former Roman Temple and since the 7th century it has been used as a church. It is also known as Santa Maria Rotonda because it is completely dedicated to St. Mary and Martyrs.


The interior features an amazing dome that has a series of stone patterns and a central coffer that allows light to spill through.
