History never fades in Rome, Italy

Rome is home to an incredible history that simply refuses to fade. The eminent sights like the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Pantheon, St Peter’s Basilica and the Trevi Fountain are bewitching. Nonetheless, it’s a great idea to unveil some of the offbeat places too - take a ghost tour to unlock some scary secrets, learn all about pastas at the Pasta Museum or put your hand inside the Mouth of Truth aka The Bocca della Verità at Santa Maria in Cosmedin. After you have gasped at the beautiful Vatican City, settle down with a cup of coffee at Via Veneto for some people-watching. For a lively nightlife, loiter around in the Trastevere area and shake a leg in one of the clubs in Testaccio.
