Bridge of Sighs

After the felon"s trial at the Governor"s Palace, he was taken to the dungeon on the east side of the Palace, and when he crossed the bridge, which was like a cage for his body, it was like stepping into a dungeon beforehand, and the prisoner let out a sigh of relief. There is also a legend that a prisoner on death row sighed deeply when he saw his former lover making out with his new lover at the other end of the bridge. The Bridge of Sighs has since become a place for lovers to witness their love, and it is said that if they kiss under the bridge, they will be together for life. The film "A Little Romance" was set here.

Optional items and ticket prices: Colosseum 17€ per person (tickets subject to seasonal changes and without notice)

Constantine"s Arch of Triumph
Constantine"s Arch of Triumph was built to commemorate Constantine the Great"s victory over his rival Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge (north-west of today"s Villa Borghese) in 312 AD, uniting the Roman Empire. The triumphal arch is 25.7 metres long, 7.4 metres wide and 21 metres high, with three arches, and is made of Roman cement. Most of the sculptures on the Arch are in relief and were collected from the buildings of successive emperors, the most famous of which are the eight reliefs at the top, which were removed from the monument to the Emperor Marcus Aurelius. When Napoleon came to Rome, he saw the Arc de Triomphe and was so impressed that he used it as a model for the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Trevi Fountain (Wishing Fountain)
The Trevi Fountain was immortalised by Fellini"s film La Dolce Vita. The fountain"s sculptures of seahorses, one violent and one gentle, symbolise the vagaries of the sea and the wonders of fate - throw a coin into the pool with your left hand around your right shoulder and you"ll return to Rome in search of romance; put in two and you"ll fall in love with an Italian; put in three and you"ll marry him. If you have other wishes, make them all at once.

Vatican
Vatican is the world"s smallest tourist destination, a mere 0.44 square kilometres of land, but full of energy. When the Pope speaks, his words immediately become the creed of more than a billion Catholics around the world, and Vatican is the last of the Papal States. For more than 1,000 years, the Papal States included Rome and much of central Italy, but after the unification of Italy in 1861, the Pope was forced to abandon his territory. Relations between Italy and the landless papacy were always tense until 1929 when Mussolini and Pius D. signed the Lateran Treaty, which formally established the Vatican State. The Vatican Museum is a collection of works of art, mostly from the Renaissance, such as Michelangelo"s Genesis and The Last Supper, and is well worth a visit. Of course, the museum"s architecture is also worthy of praise, in addition to its collections.

Basilica di San Pietro in Vatican
The Basilica di San Pietro in Vatican is not only magnificent, it is also a monument to the gift of Bernini. The deep interior of the church has a capacity of over 60,000 people and houses a wealth of breathtaking artworks, including the Pieta by Michelangelo. In the centre of the church is the 29-metre high baroque canopy designed by Bernini. It is supported by four spiral columns and is cast in Pantheon bronze. It covers the papal altar, beneath which lies the tomb of San Pietro.
