Destination Spotlight: Rome

April 19, 2019| By:Rachael Weir, Five Star Alliance

Aroma Restaurant at Palazzo Manfredi

The Eternal City offers centuries of history from Roman ruins to the Vatican. Featuring showstopping vistas and iconic landmarks at every turn, Rome attracts Christians for its religious sites, art lovers, culture seekers, history buffs, and travelers from around the globe seeking to understand its history while taking in the present pace of Rome via Vespas or romantic strolls. 

With two thousand years of history, the Colosseum is one of the city's top landmarks. Known as the Flavian Amphitheater, the building was home to gladiators taking on each other or fighting wild animals. In 2016, the building completed a massive renovation, making it even better for visitors. The largest, richest, and likely most famous church in all of Italy is St. Peter's Basilica. Completed in 1626, the church is home to significant works of art including Bernini's baldachin over the papal altar as well as Michelangelo's Pieta and awe-inducing dome. While the Vatican Museums showcase one of the world's greatest art collections with a range of masterpieces from Egyptian times to frescoes by Raphael and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. The 2,000-year-old Pantheon is now a church, but was originally built as a temple and is one of the Rome's most well-preserved ancient landmarks. 

Of course no trip to Rome would be complete without experiencing the food. From strolling with gelato to sipping a cappuccino, its important to allow time for gastronomic experiences, trattorias, pizza, and wine bars.
