As the mayor says:”Rome dares to dream again“!
For many the name of Rome recalls the dreams, the idea of charm. It is like crossing from one world to another!
The Eternal City is still today one of the most suggestive places in the world, “The Caput Mundi“, an open museum which must be seen, at least, once in your life.
Today Rome is Italy’s political capital, the capital of Catholicism. As you peel through its fascinating and jumbled layers, you’ll find its buildings, cats, laundry, traffic, and 2.6 million people endlessly entertaining. And then, of course, there are its magnificent sights. Admire Europe’s most sumptuous building, the Borghese Gallery, and take an early evening “Dolce Vita Stroll” down the Via del Corso amongst Rome’s beautiful people. Enjoy a later walk from Trastevere to the Spanish Steps, lacing together Rome’s Baroque and bubbly night spots.
Trastevere, the residence of outsider, in ancient times home of sailors, foreign merchants and of a large Jewish community. Being separated from the rest of the city gave to this neighborhood a unique opportunity to develop its own tradition, customs and dialect.
Trasteverini consider themselves “Rome’s Romans” and the energy of life on the streets raised and inspired some of the cities’ greatest artists.
In the heart of Trastevere is the extremely charming Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, with the beautiful Church of Santa Maria in Trastevere, surrounded by many bars and cafès.
Still nowadays it this area, you can taste some of the original Roman cuisine in old trattorias and osterias (typical taverns).
From many towers that once where guardes Trastevere, now there still remain Tower of Anguillara (Torre di Aguillara) with the plaque commemorating Dante’s stay in 14th century.
If you decide to climb the hill from Via Garibaldi in Trastevere, you will find yourself in Janiculum hill (Gianicolo).
The central area of the city and the seven hills : Palatino, Esquilino, Capitolino, Aventino, Colle Oppio, Quirinale e Viminale. Capitoline hill (Capitolino) was the political power center of the ancient world. It was beautified by Michelangelo, and nowadays is also home to the world’s oldest museums- Musei Capitolini.
Most of people say that Rome is an Open museum, a perfect beauty under Roman sky. You can feel it, walking to the Spanish steps (Piazza di Spagna), a legendary square underneath the Church of the Holy Trinity.
The sweeping Steps combined with the twin towers of the church on the top, and the harmony square with bizarrely shaped fountain on the bottom form one of the most distinctive Roman scenes.
The Trevi fountain which rose to fame thanks to Fellini’s classic “La dolce vita“, is exactly that place where you should stop and throw a coin in the fountain following the words of the old custom “to ensure your return to Eternal city”.
The Pantheon was originally built as a Temple of All Gods, in 7TH century AD it has converted into a church, and still stands as the best preserved building in Rome. The Pantheon contains the tomb of renaissance artist Raffaelo and also the tomb of the King Vittorio Emmanuele and his wife.
Piazza Navona, famous square of artists, always full of visitors and Romans, passing by or enjoying a cup of coffee in one of the bars. Piazza Navona is important also for three fountains, Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers, Fountain of Moor and Fountain of Neptune added in the 19th century.
Square is made on the remains of Domitian’s stadium, and nowadays surrounded by buildings and Churches, like Santa Maria della Pace which preserve the painting “Four Sibils” painted by Raffaello.
Campo dei Fiori, ancient market place, an the liveliest aria of the medieval and Renaissance Rome , which at night play the host for Romans and visitors, who frequent the bars and restaurants, or simply enjoy the magic atmosphere under the statue if Giordano Bruno.
