A city to fall in love with each time one sees. Describing Rome in words is simply impossible! It’s like an open museum where every corner has a treasure to behold. Surrounded by seven hills, Rome is the heart of Italy with astounding architecture, museums and palazzo.

Here are  15 Beautiful Photos of Rome, which can drive one crazy:

1.       Rome’s Colosseum in the light of a setting sun:  One of the most memorable and stunning sights of Rome is the Colosseum. It gets more beautiful at dusk, when the rays of sun enlighten every part of the Colosseum.

3.       The Arch of Titus: Situated at the highest point of Via Scara, this 50 feet tall Arch is the oldest example of Roman Arch. It was constructed to honour Titus’s popularity by his younger brother.

4.       Cafe cappuccino: Another gem to Rome is its coffee. Italy is famous for coffee and if one goes without tasting it then you have surely missed out on the best!

The idea of not drinking coffee is foreign to the Italians.  Café Palombini and Bar Del Cappuccino are among the best cafés.

5.     Overlooking the Roman Forum and the Colosseum:  Walking down the ancient heart of Rome is astonishingly beautiful.

The Roman Forum was once used for the political, judicial and ritual gatherings but now it’s simply a forum for the visitors to experience the Roman history. If you have a thirst for Italy tours then you should not miss a visit in Colosseum at all!
