When beauty in a city is so great it can not be literally expressed in words and the adjective “big” is the one that most closely manages to represent efficiency.
The Colosseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheater, dates back to the year 80 AD and is the true symbol of the Roman Empire: we will enter and start our tour from here.
UNESCO World Heritage Site has always been considered an extremely fascinating and full of power monument, the building rests on a platform in travertine raised above the surrounding area, with the foundations built in tuff and lined on the outside in brick.
The Colosseum in the past housed the amphitheater games that included the fights between the animals, the killing of wild animals (or other types of executions) and the fights between gladiators, but today is the most visited site in Italy.
The Imperial Forum surround the Colosseum, considered in the past the center of trade and exchange, and are located between the Palatine, Capitoline and Esquiline Hills where Rome was founded.
From the political center of the past we will move towards the political center of the present: Piazza del Campidoglio, between the Capitoline Museums and the Palazzo del Comune of Rome, home of the important statue of Marcus Aurelius
Below the Campidoglio you can admire the picturesque site of the Circus Maximus, the first stadium in Rome and today the heart of many musical and cultural meetings.
Keeper of the Circus Maximus is the Giardino degli Aranci which on the other hand looks on a good part of the history of Rome. It is surrounded by the medieval walls and the ruins of the Fortress Savelli: from this corner of paradise you can enjoy one of the most extraordinary views of the city and have a special look on the Dome of St. Peter.
With eyes full of wonder we will continue towards the Basilica of Santa Sabina, the perfect example of the first Christian churches in Rome.
The last stop will be on the Aventine Hill where we will close with another breathtaking view of Rome.
