Things to do in Rome
& Sistine Chapel
Founded by Pope Julius II in the 16th century, the museums house one of the largest and most important art collections in the world and is set across 54 galleries, courtyards and hallways. You’ll find thousands of ancient sculptures, works by Raphael and, of course, Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. If you have time and plan well in advance, book tickets to descend into the Vatican Necropolis, located beneath St. Peter’s Basilica, and the Vatican Gardens filled with fountains, flora and a replica of the Grotto devoted to Our Lady of Lourdes.
Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill
It’s impossible to work on a list dedicated to the best things to do in Rome without mentioning the Colosseum right off the bat. The largest amphitheatre ever built, the Colosseum (or “Flavian Amphitheatre”) was built between 70-80 AD and could hold up to 80,000 spectators. It was constructed to host gruesome performances for the public, including gladiator battles, animal hunting, executions and even sea battles, when the arena would be filled with water and ships. Today, you can wander around the underground tunnels, the arena floor and the stands. The 5th level is also open to the public and offers an outstanding 360-degree view of the theatre.
An ancient Roman temple dedicated to “All of the Gods”, the Pantheon is one of the best-preserved buildings from ancient Rome and continues to inspire visitors to this day. It was built by Emperor Hadrian in 125 AD on the site of a former temple built by Marcus Agrippa, and it boasts the largest (unreinforced) dome in the world, measuring 142 feet in diameter. If you are lucky enough to be in town over Pentecost weekend (which falls on June 9 this year), be sure to attend Sunday Mass when rose petals are dropped from the oculus during the celebration.
The baroque fountain on the Piazza di Trevi square was initially designed by Bernini for Pope Clemens XII. However, it was not built until 50 years later after a (less expensive) redesign by the architect Nicola Salvi. Construction lasted from 1732 to 1762. The fountain’s fame is in part the result of the many films that featured the Trevi Fountain, including La Dolce Vita, Angels and Demons, The Lizzie McGuire Movie and Roman Holiday. The name ‘La Fontana di Trevi’ is derived from tre via, or three roads. Three roads used to come together at the site of the fountain. Certainly the most famous and photographed fountain in Rome, legend has it that whoever throws a coin into the pond will return to Rome.
