Piazza Del Popolo
Start this Rome tourist attractions itinerary at Piazza del Popolo. Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful squares globally, the area is stunning. Explore the beauty that unfolds around you with your guide, such as the central lion’s fountain surmounted by an Egyptian obelisk, the magnificent Valadier fountains, and the twin churches. Behind the façade of Santa Maria del Popolo, you will find a host of incredible masterpieces.
Proceed to the Spanish Steps. As you stand and admire the Church of Trinità dei Monti, which sits at the top of a famous stairwell, with the Fontana Della Barcaccia at its foot, you will wonder how they were ever able to complete it. The spot is among the top tourist attractions in Rome.
Hidden down the city’s narrow backstreets, Trevi Fountain is a secretive masterpiece and on top of a Rome sightseeings list. Built at the end of one of the famed aqueducts that supplied the Roman empire with water, Rome’s most spectacular fountain attracts many visitors if only for them to toss a coin into its waters to ensure their safe return to Rome at some stage in the future.

You will continue your Rome sightseeing tour with a true masterpiece! The Pantheon is immaculately preserved and seemingly just a few centuries old. It isn’t easy to believe that the structure was finished in AD 128 by Emperor Hadrian. In the Square in front – a gathering place for locals – discover a decorative 16thcentury fountain sitting beneath the Egyptian obelisk.
Finally, the last but least among the famous Rome sights is Piazza Navona, one of Rome’s most significant squares, for one primary reason: Bernini’s “Fountain of the Four Rivers.” Built to represent The Nile, The Ganges, The Danube, and Rio de la Plata, the structure now sits amidst the artists who arrive to peddle their wares daily.
