Rome see + do

So deeply engraved in our minds are Rome's iconic sights—the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and St. Peter's—that the city hardly needs an introduction. Yet there's much about this cradle of Western civilization that will surprise, from unexpected juxtapositions between the monumental and the quaintly intimate to the seamless way in which more than 2,000 years' worth of built history remains an integral part of the fabric of 21st-century life. Don't exhaust yourself in a mad dash around all of Rome's attractions: Leave time for soaking up the atmosphere of its piazze and alleyways; this is just as much a part of the experience of the city as are its frescoes, statues, and ruins.
