Rome

The perfect place to visit with group/solo.

The destination of culture, music, and food.

The largest empires in the ancient world.

Euronews.travel online magazine shared that the most visited place in Rome is Pantheon.

What is Pantheon?

A temple dedicated to the twelve Gods and to the living Sovran (a person exercising supreme authority eg. monarch). Pantheon is the only ancient building that has remained in the same condition through the centuries. It has become the burial place for monarchs (including both kings of Italy), poets, and Renaissance characters, such as painter Raphael and architect Baldassare Peruzzi.

Why visit it?

Until the 20th century, the Roman building was known as the largest concrete structure in the world. The building is known as one of the city’s most spectacular sights and one of the oldest and most recognized monuments in all of Italy.

My recommendations:

  1. Visit the destination in springtime.
  2. Visit museums on the first Sunday of the month, they are free.
  3. Watch your belongings due to the high frequency of robbery.
  4. Always wear comfortable shoes. I would recommend not wearing high heels. Only take them if you need to.
  5. Always carry cash.
  6. Double check that public places are open.
