Photos: Travel Through the Eternal City

Smithsonian Magazine

Rome is a city full of ancient history, delicious gelato, beautiful piazzas and astounding art. If the weather is good, as it usually is, try wandering the city on foot.

Travel back to ancient times at the Colosseum and nearby Roman Forum, once the economic, political and religious center of Rome. The nearby Pantheon, with its iconic domed ceiling, is the best preserved building from ancient Rome.

The famous Trevi Fountain, the largest Baroque fountain in Rome, is only a short walk from the Spanish Steps, a great location to rest and people watch. At the top of the steps is Chiesa della Trinità dei Monti, a church known for its frescoes.

The Trastevere neighborhood is a great place to take a break from the main attractions and amble through streets and small shops. Slightly north of the neighborhood is Gianicolo. Though not one of Rome's famous seven hills, it is known to be a romantic spot with one of the best views of the city. 

End your day watching the sunset over the Tiber River from the terrace of Castel Sant'Angelo, known in English as the Castle of the Holy Angel. This fortress once protected popes during dangerous times in Rome, but now holds medieval firearms, paintings and sculptures.
