For our day of exploring the sculptures of Gian Lorenzo Bernini in Rome, one of our first stops was at Santa Maria della Vittoria, to see his famous sculpture of the Ecstasy of Saint Theresa. It is magnificent, but there are also a few strange...More

It's a must visit place when in Rome. Do go through the war museum and use the elevator to go to the top. You will have to get a ticket which is right there and then but it's worth going right to the top.

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside

five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
