Five Top Places in Rome

Rome is really the most beautiful city in the world, a real living museum of art and history unique in all the planet. If you need a suggestion where to stay please check the website of HOTEL MONTECARLO, historical hotel since 1957 the best three-star in Rome, with services and qualities of a 4 star 

Here my suggestion also for 5 top places must see in Rome:

The Vatican is the smallest state in the world by both area and population and within it there are religious and cultural sites such as St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. Check all my posts on this blog about the VATICAN

The Colosseum, the symbol of Rome, sited between Esquiline, Palatine and Celian Hills, one of the greatest wonders of Roman civilization. It was begun by the Emperor Vespasian in 72 AD and completed by his son, the Emperor Titus, in 80 AD. Check all my posts on this blog about the COLOSSEUM

The Trevi Fountain, the most famous fountain in the world, a real wonder, a fabulous jewel of water and stone that is nestled between the palaces of the historic centre of Rome. Check all my posts on this  blog about the TREVI FOUNTAIN

The Pantheon. This amazing ancient monument was built and rebuilt several times, first by Agrippa who began it in 27 B.C. The presente structure is the result  of an early 2nd century A.D. reconstruction by the Emperor Hadrian. The Pantheon stands on Piazza della rotonda, which is complete with obelisk and baroque  fountain. It is in an astonishing state of preservation, considering nearly two millennia of vandalism.

The Piazza Navona and its fabulous Fountain of the Four Rivers.  This spectacular square, the crowning glory of Rome's Baroque, is accessible only on foot. Its rectangular form, with rounded corners, echoes its original function; that of the 'stadio Domiziano' Domitian's stadium), upon which the square was built. In the center of Piazza Navona there is the amazing Fountain of the Four Rivers, built by the genial Gian Lorenzo Bernini, between 1648 and 1651. The four giant nudes that form the statue are the personification of the principal rivers of the continents known at the time: the Nile represents Africa, with its veiled head because the source of the river had yet to be discovered, the Ganges Asia, the Danube Europe and Rio de la Plata, the America.
