Best Things to do In Rome
From finding its way into Shakespearean literature, to becoming one of the most visited cities of Europe, Rome has always been a city, boasting of a rich cultural and religious heritage. Let’s take a look at some of the best things to do in Rome.
The Colosseum: Probably the most recognisable symbols of Rome by people all over the world, the Colosseum are one of the oldest and grandest structures of the Roman Empire. Opened to public in A.D 80, the Colosseum was intended to be an amphitheatre. The Colosseum has witnessed fights of wild animals to gladiator combats and games. It had a capacity of accommodating 50,000 people at a given time. This grand stone structure suffered great damage over the centuries with nearly two-thirds of it destroyed but it continues to stand tall till today and is a must visit because of its sheer royalty and grandeur.
The Pantheon :The Pantheon gains its popularity from the fact that it is by far the most well preserved and architecturally sound building of Rome. The name literally means a temple for all the gods and is one temple built for all gods worshipped in Pagan Rome. An awe inspiring construction of domes and arches, it reflects the ingenuity of architects and engineers at the time. Even though it is a temple, it is used as a burial place for kings and other important figures. One must visit the place to be taken aback by the architectural, geometrical and mathematical genius of the Roman people.
The Vatican The seat of Christianity of the world, the Vatican is the headquarters for the religion. One can travel all around the Vatican and still not run out of museums and chapels and churches to marvel at. Antique paintings, carvings, depicting scenes from the Bible, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms are other breath taking sights one can see here. One cannot possibly come to Rome and return without visiting the Vatican in all its religious and spiritual glory.
St. Peter’s Basilica: Built as a basilica to mark the tomb of St. Peter, the first pope, St. Peter’s Basilica stands as the world’s largest church today. The old church was demolished and a new church was built in its place, which today serves to be the seat of Christianity and an important pilgrimage site for Catholics all over the world, who come to pay homage to the first pope. Yet another architectural marvel standing testimony to the brilliance of Roman architects, St. Peter’s Basilica cannot and must not be missed!
