  • Rome: The City of Eternal Love

    Continued from page 1
    By OMNIA Vatican and Rome

    The Colloseum

    The Colosseum - Credits - Trey Ratcliff
    Although it might seem like the most obvious suggestion, a trip to Rome would not be the same without a kiss in front of the Colloseum. Legend has it that if the Colloseum collapses, civilization itself will crumble. As the name suggests, it is colossal and literally the centre of Rome. If you are not planning on going inside, why not come here at night when the piazza is more or less deserted and the beautiful ancient arches are lit up.

    Address: Piazza del Colosseo

    Opening times: 8.30am – 6.15pm

    The Roman Forum (and the Temple of Venus and Rome)

    Roman Forum - Credits - Martin Fisch
    The historic ruins of the Forum are a must-see when in Rome. Among them is the Temple of Roma and Amor, thought to have been the largest of ancient Rome's temples and perhaps the most splendid. Not only that, but it is also the perfect symbol of love in the eternal city. Why? Half the temple was built in honour of Venus, the goddess of love, while the other half was dedicated to the city of Rome itself: the ultimate combination.

    Address: Entrance from Piazza del Colosseo

    Opening times: Every day from 8.30am to 1 hour before sunset.
