A magnificent sight, and a place charged with history, the Colloseum is a must see and certainly Rome’s top attractions. Next come the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. A sight to behold, Piazza Navona is a whole experience by itself.

Try to recreate in your mind the atmosphere of Ancient Rome while stepping on its stands. There are four main areas to view and all have their own little piece of history and charm to be discovered.

The Palatino is a sight worth visiting if you want to stand where it all began, to admire sweeping views over the city and relive Ancient Rome’s history.
