Travel to Rome

Many people often say that there are many ways to Rome. It means that they represent Rome as a goal, and there many ways to achieve the goal. The next question is why do many people assume Rome as a goal ? Is Rome an extraordinary unique city on the world ? The answer might be found in the information below.
Monumental Roman Antiquities 
Colosseum, Pantheon, the baths of Caracalla, the Circus of Maxentius, Tomb of Cecilia Metella, the surviving portions of the aqueduct, baths of Diocletian, Nero's Golden House, villas on the Palatine Hill in Rome ... you can take a "bath" of culture and ancient history. 
National Museum of Rome, with a huge collection of Roman sculptures and other ancient archaeological items (like the Capitoline Museum and the Museum of Villa Giulia, then art museums: Borghese Gallery, the Gallery of Ancient Art of Barberini Palace, National Museum of Modern Art, Museums Vatican, which are actually packed with collections - art, antiques, ethnography.
• abundance of artistic masterpieces: the so-called "Stanze" (rooms) decorated by Raphael, Sistine Chapel walls and ceiling covered with magnificent paintings painted by Michelangelo, Paintings 
• historic charm and exotic two Gregorian Museum (collections of Egyptian antiquities each other - the antique Etruscan) and Ethnological Missionary Museum. 
• scenic attractions - such as the Swiss Guard, composed of soldiers dressed in the fashion insiprate Renaissance and armed with halberds, and ATM in the instructions are, in part, in Latin (which is the official language of Vatican State) 
There are over 900, many old, some very old and among all, some have more charm and special atmosphere in itself worth a visit. Among the most popular, visited by pilgrims from around the world, are the Basilica di San Pietro (St. Peter Cathedral, perhaps the most famous religious edifice of Christianity), Basilica di San Paolo Paul Outside the Walls ("Saint Paul Outside the Walls" - named because it was outside the high walls around Rome in the time of the emperors Aurelian and Probus, in the third century.), Santa Maria Maggiore, San Giovanni, Santa Croce in Gerusalemme. 
A country in a city, the Vatican produces, throughout it, a pile overwhelming impression given by: • monumental architecture: Castel Sant'Angelo, St. Peter's Basilica, the Palace of Justice, The Vatican 
Summer musical events 
• Estate Festival Romanian (Romanian Summer), from June to September, many events such as concerts and divesificate rock, jazz, classical music, theater and film. 
• Representatives of the Thermae of Caracalla work in a spectacular antique decor.

The atmosphere and views 
Narrow streets that end in the middle squares marked by fantatna baroque, old houses, with all sorts of beautiful architectural detail, roof gardens, courtyards decorated with sculptures, tasty Italian food odors, cafes and cozy-looking little restaurant ... If you leave the center and areas "to visit" traditional and busy, you have the chance to discover the "other" Rome, located beyond the retouched photos of the most representative tourist attractions. 
Fountains Without the famous, much-praised and overwhelmed-by-tourists Fontana di Trevi, such creations are enough to merit seen in Rome, their charm and impress reveals most of all when, after you've lost through a maze of streets barely wider than a path, out suddenly "light", a round square, surrounded by old buildings in the middle of which rises, surprising and wonderful, a composition of stone, full of sculptures which shine , washed by water: fountain! Piazza Farnese, in Piazza di Spagna, in Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, in Piazza Barberini and many other "piazza" such wells are found on the steps which you can stand a few moments to pull your soul eventually eat ice cream - before you continue driving.
