Discovering Rome Caput Mundi

romeRome is a really lovely city to visit but admiring its beauty in a few days it’s really hard. In addition to the historical centre, as we all know, Rome offers a lot of beauty in the periphery and in the surrounding areas that are immense.
Those who only have one weekend to visit Rome must go for the most interesting things to see. We suggest you to go directly to the centre, where there the most important monuments are, close enough to each other.
Among the first steps here are the monuments that made Rome famous all over the world:
- Via del Corso
- The Pantheon
- Piazza Navona
- Piazza Colonna
- The Trevi Fountain
- Piazza of Spain
- Piazza del Popolo
- Villa Borghese

If you have the chance, move on foot to live intensely the city and its sights. Ideally, you should see most of the monuments in the morning and in the afternoon for a picnic at Villa Borghese to rest in green meadows.
If you have a little time, also visit the Borghese Gallery located inside the villa. You can see up close several sculptures by Bernini characterized by a very original style.

The second round of visits to Rome starts from the Circus Maximus and then the area of the Aventine. From this position you can easily reach the Colosseum and continue towards the Roman Forum, Capitoline Hill and Piazza Venezia.
Finally you will be visiting the area on Via Cavour, the Basilica of St. Peter in Chains, where you will find the Monti district.
The last day of the visit can be dedicated to the Vatican City, the museums and the Sistine Chapel. Wake up early to avoid the traffic jams present at any time of day. A visit to the St. Peter’s Basilica and the Castel Sant’Angelo are worth.
The eternal city is waiting for you to experience great emotions.
