The Flavio Amphitheater, the biggest every built in Italy, is the symbol of Rome and the whole of Italy. This is where games were held in ancient Rome. The people would gather to have fun and watch the famous duels between gladiators and animals. Today, its imposing ruins are still one of the most fascinating monuments in the entire capital.
The archeological remains of the forums of Cesar, Augustus, Trajan, and Nerva are some of the best conserved ruins in Italy. In Antiquity, the center of Imperial life and of the Roman republic, they still have an imposing air and a romantic charm.
The Circus Maximus was the ancient Roman circus dedicated to horse races, but it was also used for exchanges and commercial purposes. Today, gatherings, concerts and national demonstrations still take place here.
Nowhere else in Italy, and perhaps in the world, keeps as much precious artistic treasures within its walls as the Vatican Museums. The Sistine Chapel, Raffaello's frescoes, and the sculptures and paintings of Giotto, Beato Angelico and many other masters of Italian art definitely deserve a visit.
