Colosseum

Built under Emperor Vespasian in A.D. 70-72 and completed by his son Titus 10 years later, the Flavian Amphitheatre, or the Colosseum, is a massive stone arena, which at its peak, could accommodate 80,000 spectators. As in the movie 'Gladiator,' the Colosseum has hosted violent and brutal displays of gladiatorial combats and wild animal fights, all just for the delight of crowds. The inauguration lasted one hundred days, and approximately 9,000 animals and 2,000 gladiators were killed during the event. Today, the Colosseum is Rome's most visited sight, which never fails to leave visitors awe-struck. Be sure to also come here at night when it looks even more magical.

Castle of the Holy Angel

Located on the right bank of the Tiber River, guarding one of Rome's oldest bridges, the Castel Sant'Angelo is an imposing cylindrical building, initially commissioned by Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. It was later converted into a fortress, a papal residence, and a prison. Now, it's a museum offering beautiful views of Rome.

Basilica of San Clemente

The Basilica of San Clemente is more than a simple church; it is a real museum that houses layers and layers of history. Behind the humble doors of this 12th-century church lie the remnants of the original basilica dating back to the 4th century, the remains of a 1st-century Roman villa, and breathtaking Byzantine mosaics beautifully adorning the ceiling.

Rome Opera House

Teatro dell'Opera di Roma is an Opera House that still preserves its distinctive features of the 19th century. Since opening its doors in 1880, this historic venue has hosted numerous notable productions, including the world premiere of Puccini's iconic opera, Tosca. Its resplendent red-and-gold interiors and rich historical significance make it a captivating destination, appealing even to those not particularly drawn to opera. Note that during summer, the ravishing ruins of the Baths of Caracalla are the venue for the opera company's outdoor performances.
