The Baths of Caracalla (Italian: Terme di Caracalla) in Rome, Italy, were the city's second largest Roman public baths, or thermae, likely built between AD 212 (or 211) and 216/217, during the reigns of emperors Septimius Severus and Caracalla. They were in operation until the 530s and then fell…

“The Circus Maximus is an ancient Roman chariot-racing stadium and mass entertainment venue in Rome. In the gap between the Aventine and Palatine hills, it was the first and largest stadium in ancient Rome and its later Empire. It measured 621 m (2,037 ft) in length and 118 m (387 ft) in width and could accommodate over 150,000 spectators. In its fully developed form, it became the model for circuses throughout the Roman Empire. The site is now a public park.”

“Defined as the "mother of all the churches in the world", the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano represents the ideal trait d’union between the pagan era and the Christian era. Born, in fact, as a building for public meetings and for the administration of justice, with the spread of the new creed it is transformed into a majestic ecclesiastical structure, suitable for hosting a large number of faithful. The Basilica stands on the same site as the basilica built by Constantine, around 314, on land formerly owned by the noble Lateran family, from which the whole area takes its name. Repeatedly damaged and restored, the basilica was continuously enriched over the centuries. The facade, built between 1732 and 1735 by Alessandro Galilei, is a prelude to the magnificent interior designed by Borromini, to which Pope Innocenzo X Pamphilj, in view of the Jubilee of 1650, entrusted the reconstruction. The overall layout with five naves was nevertheless preserved. Inside, the original apse mosaic, by Jacopo Torriti, made for the Jubilee of 1300, has been replaced with a modern copy, while the sixteenth-century coffered ceiling of the median nave is preserved; finally, between 1884 and 1886, the presbytery and apse were completely rebuilt. If you are here, the museum is certainly worth a visit, which contains precious liturgical furnishings, and the cloister, a masterpiece of Cosmatesque art where architectural elements, sculptures and ornaments of the ancient basilica are preserved.”

“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.”
