It's no surprise that Rome's monuments attract millions of international visitors each year. The Vatican Museums and Colosseum alone make up 2 of the most visited places in the world, drawing in together nearly 10 million tourists. But large or small, there's something to see and learn around nearly every corner.
The walkability of the city makes it easy to visit many of the monuments, but taxi or public transport is a great option for those who prefer not to cover long distances on foot. The most fun (and local!) way to get around is on 2 wheels, zipping around Rome's streets by Vespa.
Below you'll find links to all of our favorite monuments in Rome. Of course, we've included the most popular monuments like the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, and the Pantheon. We've also included some of the less visited monuments that are really worth the visit, like the baroque Turtle Fountain tucked away in the Jewish Ghetto; the Pasquino statue behind Piazza Navona where for hundreds of years (and still to this day) critics leave notes of free expression to the neck and thigh of the statue; and the Scala Santa near Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano which are said to be the exact same 28 stairs Jesus climbed to reach Pontius Pilot. They are considered so sacred that devout worshipers climb the steps on their knees.
