Piazza Navona is one of the most beautiful and renowned square in Rome. It was built by the Pamphili family; noble family of Rome intertwined with political and papal life in the period of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Pope Innocent X (Giovanni Battista Pamphilj, a member of the prestigious family) had the square built with a monumental style. Piazza Navona is one of the most important symbols of Baroque Rome. The square houses some artistic and architectural elements of great value. At the center of the square there is the Fountain of the Four Rivers by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. It represents the four corners of the earth: the Rio della Plata, the Nile, the Ganges, the Danube. Opposite the Bernini fountain is the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone, a work by Francesco Borromini and Girolamo Rainaldi. Finally, the square also houses the Palazzo Pamphilj, a majestic work erected between 1644 and 1650 by Girolamo Rainaldi. The gallery, inside the palace, contains frescoes by Pietro da Cortona.

The Colosseum, known in ancient Rome with the Latin name Amphitheatrum Flavium (in Italian: Anfiteatro Flavio) or simply Anfiteatro, is the largest amphitheater in the world.

It was built at the behest of the emperors of the Flavian dynasty in the first century AD. Its construction was started by Vespasiano in 72 AD. and inaugurated by Titus in 80, with further modifications made during the empire of Domitian; all three Roman emperors in different historical periods. Until the end of the ancient age, the Colosseum welcomed popular performances, such as gladiatorial fights, hunting shows, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on classical mythology. The Colosseum was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1980. In 2007, this important monument was also included among the New Seven Wonders of the World, by a competition organized by the New Open World Corporation.
