Spring Destinations – Rome
Rome is one of the favorite destinations of many tourists during spring. The city is an amazing historical treasure, especially when talking about the imposing architecture of the buildings, the centuries old basilicas, and the Roman edifices. Even the city’s crowded streets will teleport you to a distant period of Rome’s history.
The Colosseum is, without doubt, the symbol of Rome around the world, being one of the most visited places on the planet, attracting 6 million tourists every year. As long as the Colosseum exists, the history of Rome will never fade away. We recommend visiting the Colosseum in the evening, when it is fully illuminated – the scenery is even more spectacular at this time.
The Roman Forum
Right next to the Colosseum you can discover the Roman Forum, one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. Throughout history, the Roman Forum was the core of the social and commercial life of the Roman Empire, but unfortunately, as time passed, the place has turned into the ruins that tourists can see today.
