For most travelers, touring the Vatican is a one-day trip, and that’s exactly what we suggest, using a whole day for it. In addition, we highly recommend signing on to a good guided tour to the Vatican. This will not only help you navigate the maze of the Vatican Museums (and make sure you don’t…

“The Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as Castel Sant'Angelo (English: Castle of the Holy Angel), is a towering cylindrical building in Parco Adriano. It was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. The building was later used by the popes as a fortress and castle, and is now a museum.  A stone's throw from St. Peter's Square, it is connected to the Vatican State through the fortified corridor of the "passetto". The castle has been radically modified several times in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.”

“The Pantheon is a former Roman temple, now a Catholic church (Basilica di Santa Maria ad Martyres), on the site of an earlier temple commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus (27 BC – 14 AD). It was rebuilt by the emperor Hadrian and probably dedicated about 126 AD. The building is cylindrical with a portico of large granite Corinthian columns (eight in the first rank and two groups of four behind) under a pediment. A rectangular vestibule links the porch to the rotunda, which is under a coffered concrete dome, with a central opening (oculus) to the sky. Almost two thousand years after it was built, the Pantheon's dome is still the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome. The height to the oculus and the diameter of the interior circle are the same, 43 metres (142 ft). Since the Renaissance the Pantheon has been the site of several important burials. Among those buried there are the painters Raphael and Annibale Carracci, the composer Arcangelo Corelli, and the architect Baldassare Peruzzi. In the 15th century, the Pantheon was adorned with paintings: the best-known is the Annunciation by Melozzo da Forlì. Filippo Brunelleschi, among other architects, looked to the Pantheon as inspiration for their works.”

“Campo de' Fiori Square was a flower garden Fiori in Italian means 吐lowers". Until about 1400 years ago, this square had been a vegetable and flower garden. That is the origin of the name. In another legend, one of the antique Roman politicians "Pompey the Great" had had a girlfriend "Flora", and her name had become the name of the square... It had flourished as a luxury area In 1456, Pope Caristus III ordered a development of this area Parione district. And this pavement square was born. After then, some important buildings like the palace of Orsini Family (Palazzo Orsini) were built around this square and it started to flourish. After these circumstances, this square became a gathering place for those in power like nobilities and ambassadors. For their convenience, a colorful market started to be held twice a week (Monday and Saturday). Near the square, hotels, restaurants and artisan shops began to gather and this area became a commercial and cultural center in Rome. Black period in the history, freedom of thought was prohibited The Campo de Fiori was also known as a place of execution during some historic period. On 17 February 1600, Giordano Bruno, a philosopher and a Dominican friar was sentenced to the stake here. He argued that the universe was infinite (at that time it had been considered finite) and defended the heliocentric theory of Copernicus. He had been sentenced to a heresy charge. Since after that he would not withdraw his theory, he became a martyr in this place. Then his bronze statue was made was built in the center of the square in order to remember this unfortunate history (in 1869, by Ettore Ferrari). After 1869, the square became a beautiful vibrant market. In 1943, here was used for shooting of a famous film "Campo de' fiori" of Anna Magnani and Aldo Fabrizi. Just looking at the markets makes you exciting! If you want to see a morning market in Rome, here this "Campo de' Fiori" would be the best. Colorful vegetables and fruits, beautiful flower shops as the name of the square shows, processed ham and cheese to enjoy at your hotel, as well as cloths and accessories for souvenirs and also general merchandise, you can find all kinds of goods in this market. Among them, a wine stopper with a decorative glass was especially attractive for me. It's made of stainless steel and is very solid, but costs only 5 euros! If you go to buy something like this at one of the stores in the city center, it would cost more than double price. After all, the market is for normal people. Why don't you use it to find some souvenir? It's also recommended to purchase souvenirs! In addition, they sell also spices by weight, cute shaped bottled limoncello (lemon liqueur) and balsamic vinegar, traditional boxed cakes etc. When you feel hungry, let's order an instant panini at one of meat shops there. All locals are enjoying this panino at the feet of the statue of Giordano Bruno. At the entrance of the Campo de' Fiori, on the north street, there is a bakery named "Forno Campo de Fiori". They sell fresh breads and pizzas at the next workshop. Its good fragrant of baked wheat attracts many people and invites into the shop. Let's try to taste their breads. It's simple and delicious. (Address: Piazza Campo Dei Fiori 22) Be careful while you're enjoying Near the square, there are also many boutiques and antique shops. Here is the best route for leisurely walks. Plus, there are lots of neat and delicious restaurants, too. You can enjoy a slow tourism. The market is vibrant and full of tourists, but just don't forget to keep your purse. It's easy to be targeted when you are concentrating on pictures. After dark, in this area many popular pubs start open and a lot of young people are gathering. Late at night here becomes a little bit chaotic with young guys and policemen... However, don't worry if it is about dinner time. It's very safe.”

“The Trevi Fountain is the largest and one of the most famous fountains in Rome. Built on the facade of Palazzo Poli by Nicola Salvi, the competition launched by Pope Clement XII in 1731 was initially won by the French sculptor Lambert-Sigisbert Adam but later the task passed to Salvi: it is said that the change was due to the fact that the pontiff did not want to entrust the work to a foreigner; instead, another version explains that Adam had to return to France. Begun in 1732, it was completed thirty years later by Giuseppe Pannini; stylistically it belongs to the late Baroque.”
