• In Rome ,as in most European cities, your security is a fact, but
you must be careful about the pickpocketers, who will try to
steal your valuable things. Howeber you can prevent this
situation easily watching after your things and trying not to
separe them from you. If you have any problem you can trust
the police, they will try to solve your problems if they can.
If you go to Rome you can´t return home without visiting those three
o The Colosseum, a construction from the Roman Empire in which
gladiators fought against slaves and wild animals. Nowadays you
can do a tour arond it and watch its most important places.
o Trevi Fountain, which is one of the bigest Baroque fountains in the
world and of course it´s a beautiful monument.
o Vatican City: the home of the Catholic Church. There you can find
the Saint Peter´s square, the Sistine Chapel or the Apostolic Palace,
among other beautiful monuments.
