Pass By:  
Complesso del Vittoriano
Located in one of the most important squares of the capital, Piazza Venezia, the Vittoriano is one of the most representative monuments of the patriotic spirit and national identity. Improperly called "Altare della Patria", there is buried the famous "Unknown Soldier", a soldier who died during the First World War, whose identity was in fact "unknown" because the body was unrecognizable for the serious wounds suffered in the field, it was for this chosen as a symbol of the entire Italian people who sacrifice themselves for their country and national freedom. The Vittoriano, which owes its name to Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of a united Italy, can be considered a lay temple consecrated to Italy. During Fascism, the monument became the chosen point for organizing events celebrating the regime. On the stairways the public witnessed the speeches uttered by Benito Mussolini from the famous balcony of Palazzo Venezia. Even today, the Vittoriano is the monument chosen to celebrate various events such as those celebrated on the occasion of the Anniversary of the Liberation of Italy (April 25), for the Italian Republic Day (June 2).

Pantheon
Monument built in 27-25 BC by Marco Vipsanio Agrippa, as a temple dedicated to all the pagan gods, above all to the 7 planetary divinities. It's called by the Romans as "the Rotonna" from which the square in front, Piazza della Rotonda, takes its name. A feature that immediately captures the visitor's eye is the contrast between the square entrance with the columns and the triangular tympanum, and the enormous rounded space of the internal structure. The only source of illumination is the huge oculus, with a diameter of 9 meters, present on the dome that allows the zenithal fallout of light creating a play of chiaroscuro inside the building. The Pantheon houses the burials of famous people, such as the artist Raffaello Sanzio, Annibale Carracci, the musician Arcangelo Corelli, and those of the first two kings of Italy, Vittorio Emanuele II, his son Umberto I and Queen Margherita of Savoy.

Piazza Navona
One of the most evocative and famous squares of Rome, particularly loved by tourists and citizens.

It was built by Innocent X to celebrate the Pamphili family, who commissioned the major artists of the time such as Bernini (the Fountain of the Four Rivers) and Borromini and Rainaldi (the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone) in the creation of works that made one of the most important squares in all of Italy.

Stop At:  
Trevi Fountain
Certainly the Trevi Fountain is the most famous fountain in the world and is one of the main symbols of Rome, which has become part of the collective imagination thanks to the cinema and the films "La Dolce Vita" by Federico Fellini (famous is the scene in which Anita Ekberg takes a bath in the fountain inviting Marcello Mastroianni to do the same), or "Totòtruffa 62" where the famous Totò sells the fountain to a naive tourist, pretending to be its rightful owner. The obligatory ritual for all visitors is the tossing of the coin into the fountain, with the eyes closed and turning the shoulders, so as to propitiate a future return to the city.

Piazza del Popolo
Last great achievement of papal Rome, Piazza del Popolo has at its center the Flaminio Obelisk, the oldest and tallest in Rome, symbol of the Sun, brought from Egypt to Rome by Emperor Augustus and originally located at the Circus Maximus. On it there are three churches: Santa Maria del Popolo and the two twin churches, respectively Santa Maria dei Miracoli and Santa Maria in Montesanto. On the two east and west sides of the square, there are two almost twin fountains, the fountains of Neptune and the Goddess Rome; many tourists enjoy identifying the differences.

St. Peter's Basilica
The largest of the four papal basilicas of Rome, but also the largest in the world, is the fulcrum of the entire Catholicism and as such the seat of the main manifestations of Christian-Catholic worship and papal celebrations, such as Christmas, Easter, the proclamation of the new pontiffs and the funerals of the deceased popes, the canonization of the new saints, the opening and closing of the jubilees. The current Basilica was built on the same perimeter where the Constantinian basilica stood before, commissioned by the emperor Constantine I who chose that area because there was an ancient necropolis where St. Peter was believed to have been buried, the first of the apostles of Jesus after his crucifixion. For the monumental construction of the Basilica, the so-called "Fabbrica di San Pietro" was set up, a special body for the management of all the works necessary for its artistic and building completion. The solemn consecration took place in 1626 under the Urban VIII pontificate, while in 1667 the large colonnaded portico by Bernini was completed, with the obelisk in the center, which symbolically embraces the faithful in the cradle of Christianity. Inside, the Basilica of San Pietro offers a show of extraordinary and unique beauty, preserving works that can be considered among the most important of the human artistic heritage, such as the Pietà by Michelangelo, the Baldacchino by Bernini, and the majestic Dome visible in his from all over the center of Rome.
