It is the most populous and largest town in Italy and it is among the major European capitals for the size of  its territory.

It is the city with the highest concentration of historical and architectural heritage in the world; its old town bounded by the perimeter of the Aurelian walls, overlapping testimonies of almost three millennia, is an expression of the historical, artistic and cultural heritage of the Western European world and, in 1980, along with the extraterritorial properties of the Vatican in the city and the basilica of St. Paul outside the walls, was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The first route that we recommend is a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica, the symbol par excellence of Christianity. The basilica houses the majestic bronze canopy 29 meters high, built by Bernini, the Pietà by Michelangelo, the tomb of Clement XIII by Canova and the mosaic Navicella by Giotto.

Not far away from there are the Vatican Museums and the famous Sistina Chapel, dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption, it is one of the most famous cultural and artistic treasures of the Vatican City .

With your back to the Basilica walk across Via della Conciliazione until you get to Castel Sant’Angelo.

Just in front of the castle bridge topped by white Angels it allows you to cross the Tiber, just on the other side heading towards the left you will come to Piazza Navona.

From here through the course and behind the Renaissance Palazzo Madama (Senate) a series of narrow streets will lead you to Piazza della Rotonda and the Pantheon.

From Piazza della Rotonda, take Via dei Pastini, up to Piazza di Pietra, with the great Temple of Hadrian, and in the immediate vicinity you can admire Piazza di Trevi.

Other itineraries you must visit are the Colosseum, the Forum and the Capitol.

The Colosseum with its 2000 years of history is the symbol par excellence of Rome. Within a short  walking distance are the Arch of Constantine the most famous Roman triumphal arch and a little further on the Palatine.

Continuing on Via dei Fori Imperiali you will arrive at the ancient Roman Forum, Piazza di Roma, on the other side of the road you can appreciate the area of ​​the Imperial Forums.

Another interesting stop is the Capitol, the smallest Roman hill, but the most famous. The floor of the square is decorated with the famous Michelangelo’s twelve-pointed star. At the center of the star, there is a large statue on horseback which  is a perfect copy of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius monument.
