Hotel Indigo Rome - St George, is located in Via Giulia, an elegant cobbled street in the historic centre of Rome, designed by Pope Julius II. This
tucked away neighbourhood
is lined with a range of shops and doorways for you to explore.
When venturing further out, here are a few must-see places
for you to experience:The Colosseum
The Colosseum is an amphitheatre located in the heart of ancient Rome. Constructed around 70 AD, it held 50,000 people and was originally used for gladiatorial battles, public executions, and other public spectacles. Although worn by earthquakes and age, the Colosseum remains a symbol of the city and a monument to the glory days
of the Roman Empire.The Forum
Close to the Colosseum, the Forum is what remains of the centre of ancient Rome. It was the site of the municipal buildings and palaces from which Rome's leaders ran the Empire. Adjacent is the Circus Maximus, the site of Rome's public games, festivals and chariot races. Although it's now a public park, you can still see traces of the ancient race track.The Trevi Fountain
The Trevi Fountain is a magnificent stone sculpture
depicting the story of a young virgin leading early Romans to fresh water. Legend has it that throwing coins into the fountain will ensure a return trip to Rome, and thousands of Euros are thrown in each day. Perhaps this is part of the reason it often tops the list of Rome tourist attractions.The Pantheon
Originally constructed as a temple to the Roman gods, the Pantheon has functioned as a Catholic church since the 7th century. It is the most well preserved ancient structure in Rome
, and the oldest to still support a dome.The Spanish Steps
Joining two of Rome's most delightful piazzas (Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Trinita dei Monti), these 138 steps are a beautiful sight both day and night. They were built in the 1720s, and today visitors can enjoy the view
, then take time out to relax in a nearby espresso bar.
