Rome, Italy

Description

Many of Rome's monumental historical structures are found in the heart of the city. The Coliseum, Roman Forum, and the Pantheon are main attractions. Also not to miss is the Vatican City where the frescoed walls and ceilings of the Sistine Chapel are embellished by some of Italy's greatest Renaissance artists. Sculptures of that era are also found in the St. Peter's Basilica, where catching a glimpse of Michelangelo's Pietà moves some to tears. Art of the Baroque period can be found in the Villa Borghese. Bernini masterpieces are displayed in the Gallery and park. Another popular area is the Piazza di Spagna and its Spanish Steps where locals and tourists alike congregate. Down the Via Condotti, Italian fashion houses showcase and sell their wearable art. An overwhelming shopping district, the list of designer shops are endless. Among them are Gucci, Prada, Salvatorre Ferragamo, and of course, Giorgio Armani, who also designed the uniforms for Italy's police force, airline and the Olympic team.
