VERY powerfull exposition. It's a must to see, but remember that you should book before the visit. Bernini is worth it.

Spanish steps are very beautiful and allow a great view over Rome. Nearby is palatium on via Frattina. A must to go. Subsidised and great food/drinks all originating from the province of Lazio.

such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
