Piazza Navona20 min. on foot - NAZIONALE/QUATTRO FONTANE line 64 - 6 stops - get off at C.SO VITTORIO EMANUELE/S. A. DELLA VALLE
The Colosseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre was built under the command of Emperor Vespasian in 80 AD and is the most famous amphitheatre in the world. Its vast size and its illustrious history have made it the symbol of the ancient Roman Empire. Today is considered the seventh wonder of the world and it is a full member of the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The modern name of the square comes from the term Agones, which in Latin means means “games”. Piazza Navona has always been the Roman’s games area. The current form of the square, in fact, faithfully follows the perimeter of the ancient Domitian stadium built in 86 AD for athletics games and horse racing. You can still see the remains of this ancient structure at 5-6 metres below today’s street level.
Trevi10 min. on foot
Campo dei fioriBus NAZIONALE/QUATTRO FONTANE line 64 - 6 stops - get off at C.SO VITTORIO EMANUELE/S. A. DELLA VALLE
The Trevi Fountain is the most famous and among the monumental fountains of Rome. Begun in 1732 by Nicolò Salvi it was then completed under the guidance of Giuseppe Pannini and it is the result of a perfect blend of classic and baroque styles. The Trevi Fountain was the star of one of the most famous scenes of Italian cinema: in Federico Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita” in 1960.
The history of this place begins in ancient Rome when it was considered one of the roughest areas of the city, used as a holding area for those who drove the chariots at the events in the Circus Maximus. In medieval times the Campo dei Fiori square was laid out before becoming a place of taverns and business activities only in the early sixteenth century. Since 1896 it hosts a unique daily market.
PantheonBus NAZIONALE/QUATTRO FONTANE line 64 - 5 stops - get off at ARGENTINA
The Pantheon is a Roman temple built by Agrippa between 25 and 27 BC and dedicated to the twelve gods and the living ruler. It was completely rebuilt between 118 and 128 AD by Emperor Hadrian. For technical and symbolic reasons, the Pantheon, does not have a completely covered roof over its dome, and therefore, when it rains, the effect is that of an ascending air current that causes the drops of water to shatter thus making it seems as though the water does not reach the inside of the building.
Palazzo esposizioni3 min. on foot
Piazza di Spagna10 min. on foot
Opened in 1883 the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome had to fulfil the need of the young Capital of Italy for a cultural structure based on the model of the other major European capitals.

Piazza di Spagna, with the famous Trinita dei Monti staircase (135 steps), is the heart of Rome, a gathering place for both tourists and inhabitants of the capital. The square owes its name to the palazzo di Spagna, home of the Spanish Embassy to the Holy See, and is houses the following monuments: the Fontana della Barcaccia by Pietro and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the Palazzo della Propoganda Fide and the Column of the Immaculate Conception, dating back to ancient Rome and placed in Piazza di Spagna in 1857.
