What to see in Rome
Rome is treasured all over the world because of the immense artistic gems and beauty of its picture-perfect landscapes, and and magnificent parks. The average number of tourists range from 7 to 10 million per year.
One of the most popular tourist attractions, the Colosseum, ranks as a top world destination. Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, it is the largest amphitheatre in the Roman Empire and in the world. The Colosseum used to host muneras, which are gladiatorial shows that were very popular. Today, it has become a major tourist destination which enjoys thousands of tourists per year. A museum, dedicated to Eros, the Roman god of love, can be found at the upper floor. It is also now being restored and will be completed in 2016.
Another ancient archeological wonder is the Pantheon. The building is circular with a portico of large granite Corinthian columns. It is the best-preserved example of an Ancient Roman monumental building and has become a favourite design structure for libraries, city halls and universities. Other ancient sites include the Forum Romanum, Trajan’s Market and Trajan’s Forum.
When in Rome, it is inevitable to see religious churches.
