Rome is such a dense and ancient place that short listing top 5 attractions can be overwhelming. Where do you start, indeed? Not to be worried though! Here we have pulled together a list of top attractions that you must check out on your Rome tour. Let’s have a good look at them:

Pay a trip to the Colosseum:

The Colosseum is one of the most internationally known symbols of Rome. Inaugurated way back in 80 A.D. the Colosseum has a long & bloody history. The place was used for wild beast hunts, public executions, and gladiator fights for many hundred years, then became a condo of sorts as medieval Romans made their homes in the hulking ruins. It was the largest auditorium in the Roman Empire & is assumed to have packed nearly 50,000 people inside. Today almost four million people visit this remarkable Roman monument annually.

See Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi):

A must-visit on numerous tourists’ itineraries, the Trevi Fountain is located amidst a high concentration of hotels, shopping centers and exclusive nightlife. Finished in the mid 1700s, the Trevi is a wonderful instance of a baroque design with a noticeably legendary character. The god of the sea, Oceanus, comes out from the pool, bordered by his faithful Tritons. The fountain experienced a widespread, multimillion euro restoration & re-launched in its full brilliance in November 2015. This legendary site is best viewed at night when lights light up the fountain.

As per Roman tradition, throwing one, 2 or 3 coins into the fountain, with your right hand over your left shoulder makes sure you will come back to Rome; you will fall in love with a gorgeous Roman; and you will tie the knot to the same Roman.
