Rome is a popular tourist destination in Italy and is full of attractions. The unique, attractive and most prominent attractions in Rome are: Coliseum, St. Peter's Cathedral, Travis Fountain, Pantheon, Vatican Museums, Spanish Steppes and Victor Emmanuel II Monument.  

Coliseum: The Coliseum which can enclose an audience of eighty thousand during those times was witnessed with cruel entertainment and execution. Gladiators, slaves, and animals fought in the Coliseum. The Coliseum has been devastated numerous times throughout its long history but it retains its individuality. It is regarded as a Roman sign.
St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome: A trip to Rome would not be complete without a visit to the St. Peter's Basilica. The Basilica of St. Peter is Italy's largest and most important church. It is a holy site for Christians, built in 1626. Apart from religious reasons, St. Peter's Basilica attracts a large number of tourists who come to see great pieces of art and distinctive architectural works that carry the sign of Renaissance architecture.
Pantheon: The Pantheon is also known as the Temple of the Gods. The name derives from the fact that images of many Roman deities are engraved on the walls. The Pantheon is an engineering marvel that is about two thousand years old. Rebuilt in AD 80 after a fire, the structure is considered one of the major achievements of Roman architecture. Its dome is 43 meters high and is supported by pillars hidden inside the walls.
Spanish Steppes: Another tourist attraction in Rome is the Spanish Steppes. Although it has nothing to do with Spain, most of the tourists come here to sit on the steps and spend some free time. These 135 steps lead from the Piazza de Spana to the upper Trinita de Monti Church.
Trevi Fountain: It is one of the most well-known fountains in the world, featuring elements such as the fountain's building history, remarkable sculptures, and inspirational stories from the series. This place is where the movies like ‘La Dolce Vita’, ‘Sabrina Goes to Rome’, and ‘Three Coins in a Fountain’ have been shot. Trevi Fountain is an example of Baroque architecture.
Victor Emmanuel II Memorial: The Vittoriano or Victor Emmanuel II Memorial is one of the modern monuments in Rome. Its construction began in 1885 and was completed in 1911. The monument is 135 meters long and 130 meters high.
Vatican Museums: The guests will be astonished by the impressive architecture on the ceiling of the Vatican museum. The Vatican Museums are one of the world's largest museums, including famous classical statues and expensive art treasures. Throughout the years, many royal generations gathered the collection. The Sistine Chapel is the most famous attraction.

Rome is a paradise for historians. When we think of Rome as a monument of wealth and architectural prowess of the Romans, we are reminded of the many historical relics that have survived numerous attacks and natural disasters, delighting the eyes and minds of travellers.
