Piazza Navona the "living room" of Baroque Rome, court of the Pamphilj family and setting for the artistic wonders of two great protagonists of the 17th century: Bernini and Borromini. Recent restorations have opened up interesting critical perspectives on the appearance of Rome in the 17th and 18th centuries, now lost to us but perhaps partly rediscovered in the unusual colors of some city buildings
Caravaggio probably the most well-known works by this painter are conserved in the church of San Luigi dei Francesi. To approach the works of Caravaggio is to come into contact with a unique and unrepeatable artistic vision full of emotion
Pantheon a perfect round temple and model for generations of architects from ancient times until modern. The Pantheon amazes visitors due to the perfection of its forms and the dimensions of its vast internal spaces

Church of Sant'Ignazio di Loyola the second Jesuit church in Rome conserves a frescoed vault of exceptional beauty. A masterpiece of Baroque decoration, the vault was painted by the mathematician Father Andrea Pozzo at the end of the 17th century, following a rare and perfect plan of perspective which gives the visitor the impression of an optical illusion
Piazza Colonna in this square we find the column of Marcus Aurelius which some Romans call it Antonine. It is entirely decorated in relief and it seems as if a ribbon wraps round it from top to bottom, following the exemple of Trajan's Column near the Imperial Forum. The facade that encloses the square to the north is the Chigi Palace, headquarters of the President's Council of Ministers and located next to the italian Parliament

Trevi Fountain the most famous Roman fountain still astonishes the visitor with the scenographic impact it has on those who arrive in the square from the many streets which converge  there
Quirinal Hill on this hill and square there was the summer residence for the popes, which is today the residence of the President of the Republic. Opposite the ancient papal stables there is the Rospigliosi Pallavicini villa and next to the villa there is the Palace of Consulta. In the centre of the square there is the imposing obelisk that stands between the two statues of the Dioscuri
