Fontana di Trevi

The famous fountain that has been a backdrop of movies including ‘Three Coins in the Fountain’ and Fellini’s ‘La Dolce Vita’. It intersects three major roads, and so takes its name 'tre-vi'. Constructed in 1762 by Nicola Salvi it is one of the great landmarks of central Rome.

Spanish Steps

These beautifully crafted steps are one of the major highlights of every trip to Rome. Funding by the French Diplomat and architectural work by Francesco de Sanctis lead to their completion in 1725. The total of 135 steps from the Piazza Spagna to the Trinita dei Monti church at the top.

Piazza Venezia

Many consider this square to be the formal centre of the city. It is the intersection of major roadways, as well as being the beginning of the Via di Fori Imperiali. This is the grand passage that leads from the Piazza, through the Forum and to the Colosseum.

Vatican City

Tourists and pilgrims alike flock to this most reverent place, the seat of the Pope and the centre of the Catholic church. Just west of the city centre, across the river Tiber, is the Vatican City.
