What to Do
The most famous fountain in the world – superb, gorgeous, breath taking, and a real blaze of glory. Such an extraordinary Baroque masterpiece – designed by Nicola Salvi and Giuseppe Pannini – brings to the city the fresh water from the ancient Roman aqueduct Aqua Virgo.
The Spanish Steps is the famous and scenographic staircase in front of the Trinità dei Monti church. It lies over the Bernini’s fountain known as “Barcaccia” and one of the most famous squares of Rome, Piazza di Spagna. The name comes from the Embassy of Spain at the Holy See, located there since its first establishment. The English poet John Keats had his house (now a museum) there, near the historical tea house "Babington's".
Unique in the world history of architecture, the Pantheon is a temple devoted to all the gods. It has been built in the 1st century B.C., and it is the tomb of the kings of Italy.
