Where in Rome
“It is unwise to go to Rome if you do not have the conviction of returning to Rome.”
– GK Chesterton –
Because Rome is neverending, as neverending are the changing looks which can be given to the Eternal City. Listing all the corners, views and monuments that have made Rome the center of the world throughout History, is simply impossible. Parisii would yet be glad to accompany you in what we are sure will just be the first of your endless trips to discover Rome.
Just quit Parisii, look right and come across the magnificence of Piazza Barberini, with the eponymous Palace, Fontana del Tritone and Fontana delle Api, located on the corner with Via Veneto, made famous by Fellini’s La dolce vita.
Trinità dei Monti – Piazza di Spagna
Just 500 meters on foot, one of the most envied landscapes in the world: the famous flowery staircase that leads directly to Fontana della Barcaccia and Via dei Condotti, a must for any fashion victims.
Fontana di Trevi
One of the greatest symbols of Rome. It is still Fellini, with his La dolce vita, who makes it so famous. Free your desires: throw a coin into the water, and make them as eternal as Rome.
Piazza Venezia – Altare della Patria – Fori Imperiali
Here we are, the quintessential place where the past wears contemporary clothes. The charm of the Roman Empire, interpreted by the astonishing Imperial Fora, one of the most important archaeological complexes in the world; Altare della Patria, memory of recent History,
Colosseo – Arco di Costantino
The Colosseum, the largest amphitheater in the world, a World Heritage Site and one of the Seven World Wonders. One of the greatest expressions of the power of the Roman Empire, able to take your breath away when you see it appear on the horizon.
The Arch of Constantine, a veritable open-air museum where you can admire the triumph of the sculptors of ancient Rome.
The temple of all the gods. The largest dome in the world. A closed place, in which you look up to the sky, realizing how much man tends to reach infinity. The place of dismay par excellence.
One of the most famous squares in Rome, headed by the magnificence of Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi. It is said that Bernini’s dream was to compose a small universe in motion, able to imitate the space of natural reality, creating water games which could leave spectators literally stunned. Bernini’s dream has been living for over three hundred years.
History, religion, art, culture. There is immense wealth within the world’s smallest sovereign state. Just two eyes are not enough to embrace one of the most incredible views of the planet. There are not even words to tell about its beauty. This is no advice: better to say that ours is an imposition: go there.
Angels and Demons, La Tosca, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood: references in mass culture are so many and so disparate that Castel Sant’Angelo has become a must for readers, opera lovers, video game addicted and more. A glimpse into the history of the world, but also in our personal story, made up of memories, passions, dreams.
Let’s face it: you can’t go to Rome if you don’t feel like trying La Dolce Vita on your skin.
