The Eternal City celebrates its storied history with monuments, churches and ruins that offer a glimpse into life during the days of the great Roman Empire. It’s known for the Coliseum, which tells a story of a culture that celebrated the gladiator games at this huge entertainment arena. Additionally, the Forum was the center of city life, playing host to many of life’s events, including festivals, celebrations, funerals and rituals. Though the Vatican City has been an independent state since 1929, it is located within Rome. The Trevi Fountain is the largest Baroque fountain in the city. A legend holds that if a visitor throw a coin into the fountain, he or she is ensured a return to Rome.

A visit to the Pantheon is in order for the historians in your group. Rome's temple to the gods is remarkably intact. This is a remarkable feat considering that it was originally constructed in 27 B.C. and later rebuilt in the early 2nd century A.D. after fire damage. Rome is known for its beautiful and charming squares lined with restaurants and open-air cafes. One of the most popular of all is the large public square at Piazza Navona. It was once the site of sporting events at Domitian's stadium in A.D. 89. The Spanish Steps may be the longest and widest staircase in all of Europe, but that's not what draws visitors to this popular tourist spot. Take a seat in the middle of the wide staircase and watch the comings and goings as people shop in the high-end shops, and dine in restaurants.
