Ancient Rome

Rome counts for many tourists as the top destination in Italy. And the main reason for this is certainly the three-thousand-year history. So today I'm going to introduce you to the most important spots of ancient Rome for your next trip to eternal City. Buon Viaggio!

The Colosseum was completed in 80 AD and was the venue for gladiator fights.

Roman Forum & Imperial Forums
The Roman Forum was from the 1st century AD, the center of Roman public life. 
The Imperial Forums were next to the Roman Forum and the centres of politics.

Arch of Constantine 
According to tradition, the Arch of Constantine was built to celebrate the victory over Maxentius in 312.

It is believed, that Rome was founded in 754 BC by Romulus on the Palatine Hill.

Circus Maximus

Formerly a chariot racing stadium. Today, unfortunately only green space!

The Pantheon is dedicated to all the gods and represents one of the largest temples of ancient Rome. To this day, it is perfectly preserved.
