If you have seen
the movie Gladiator, you know what we are talking about. The giant amphitheater
that had 50,000 seats was once the favorite sporting stadium of Rome. The only
difference is that their favorite sport was seeing gladiators fight each other
or animals. There were festivals on these grounds that could go on for over 100
days and saw thousands of animal slaughtering and deaths. Now, the colosseum
stands as a grand monument to the days of ancient Rome. If you want to visit
Rome, make sure you definitely come here. Find more information on the visit Colosseum website.
Bars and pubs
The Roman bars
and pubs are quickly becoming the hotspot of craft beers in Italy. Even the
smallest pubs in the city can offer you at least a dozen different types of
craft beers and several other bottled beer varieties alongside burgers, salads
and other delicacies. If you visit Rome and don’t go around town drinking
different beers, you have really wasted your time.
You would be
tired if you simply go bar hopping. Make sure that you stop in between to taste
the delicious Roman pizza. The most beautiful part about Roman pizza is that it
is cooked in the same old ways since years. The pizza usually has a crunchy
crust but, in some places, you will get a crunchy exterior with a gooey interior
as well. The classic tomato and oregano topping is still considered the best
here but look around and you may find other unique toppings with a large
variety of cheeses topped generously on the pie.
The St Clement
beautiful thing about this three-tiered complex was that it was been standing
here for 2000 years and has more Roman history in its lap than any other place
in the city. The basilica is houses in an interesting complex that has the
ruins of churches from the 1200s and another church houses beneath it from the
year 350 AD. This was not all, there is yet another ancient layer of the church
that was built around 1 AD. The church has a very beautiful interior as well
which features wonderful mosaic works as well as Renaissance era frescos.
