Its real name is the Flavio Amphitheatre, it is known by all as the Colosseum and is the symbol of the city of Rome… Vespasiano began its construction in 72 AD, and it was completed by his son, Titus, eight years later. In its time, the Colosseum was comparable to our stadiums, although the spectators were quite different from those of today.

Symbol of Roman antiquity in present day. The current arrangement of buildings date back to the sixteenth century when Michelangelo created the splendid square and imposing stairs of the Cordonata. Two of the three buildings are home to the Capitoline Museum.

AD), and in the seventh century, it was converted into a church dedicated to Mary and the Martyrs.

The focal point of the square is the Steps of the Trinità di Monti, designed by Francesco De Sanctis in 1726, connect to the Pincio, and provide a wonderful background, one of the city’s most picturesque and architectural scenes. The work, thanks to the wonderful combination of its architectural motifs and grandeur of size, stands as the finest development of the eighteenth century Roman Empire.

Piazza Navona is one of Rome’s most spectacular and popular locations. It is an urban complex that is Baroque in style, shape and size, and is built upon the Stadium of Domitian. First built in 86 AD on the area of ​​Campo Marzio, (It was 275 meters long, 106 wide and could hold about 30,000 spectators.) which under Caesar and Augustus was a wooden enclosure and is where Nero built an amphitheatre for his quincentennial games.

The picturesque piazza together with Bernini’s column, frame the largest church in Christendom and is dominated by the majestic dome of Michelangelo. The construction of the basilica extends throughout the sixteenth century and was created by Michelangelo, Giacomo della Porta and Domenico Fontana. The basilica stands on the foundations of an earlier Christian church, which tradition says was built over the tomb of the Apostle.
