Roma also offers many events : concerts , exhibitions , special occasions , celebrations and more.
Called by the ancient Romans, " Anphitheatrum Flavlum " (Flavian Amphitheatre ), the Colosseum is the most famous and impressive monument of ancient Rome , and the biggest amphitheater in the world. The name is definitely linked to the large size of the building but stems above all from the fact that nearby there was a colossal statue of Nerone in bronze.
The beautiful classical - baroque fountain by Nicola Salvi known around the world for the famous bath of Anita Ekberg in the film La Dolce Vita. As a tradition, throwing a coin into the fountain, turning away, there is a propitious future return to the city.
The Imperial Fora consist of a series of monumental squares built over a century and a half ( between 46 BC and 113 A.D. ) in the heart of the city of Rome by the emperors. The splendid Forum of Caesar, the Forum of Augustus, the Forum of Trajan and that of Nerva, constitute a great insight into life and the greatness of ancient Rome.
Basilica of Saint Peter
The grandeur of the seventeenth century facade by Carlo Maderno makes the idea of the gigantic size of St. Peter's Basilica, still one of the largest churches in the world. The dome designed by Michelangelo and a splendid colonnade of 284 Doric columns and eighty-eight pillars of Tivoli travertine surrounds St. Peter's Basilica, as if to welcome in a symbolic embrace the faithful visiting. Thanks to this arrangement, the viewer reaching porphyry discs to the sides of the obelisk sees the columns as composed of a single row of columns.
