Some of the main attractions that could be visited on foot are:

Pantheon: This temple, was built according to the wishes of Marco Agrippa, Caesar Augustus's son-in-law, in 27 B.C.

Trevi Fountain: built by Nicola Salvi (1762), into a wall of the Poli Palace, is an aesthetically pleasing union of Classic and Baroque styles. It is said that the inspiration came from a Bernini design

Spanish Steps: situated at the foot of Pincio hill, the piazza is named for the Spanish Embassy, located next to the Holy See. The focal point of the Piazza is the 'barcaccia' fountain by Pietro Bernini

Piazza del Popolo: this plaza is magically situated at the foot of the Pincio, as part of the city's Baroque urbanistic renovation, in an effort to modernize routes frequently travelled by the upper classes

Piazza Navona: spectacular plaza, the crowning glory of Baroque Rome, accessible only on foot. Its rectangular form, with rounded corners. Three fountains dominate the plaza masterwork of Pietro Bernini.

Colosseum: "when the Coliseum falls, Rome will fall; but when Rome falls, the world will end" .... originally named 'Anfiteatro Flavio' , it was commissioned by Vespasian in 72 A.D. and inaugurated by Titus in 80 A.D. Additions were made a few years later by Domitian. Elliptical in shape, it measures 188 meters by 156 meters, with a height of 56 meters. Its 76 entrances made it possible for 5000 people per minute, to enter or exit. With a capacity of 50,000, in the case of an emergency, the entire amphitheatre could be evacuated in a matter of 10 minutes.

Circus Maximus: The Circus Maximus took the traditional form of all Roman circuses, that being a rectangle rounded at the angles, with it's exceptional dimensions of 600 meters in length by 100 meters in width.

Caracalla Thermal Baths: In 206 A.D. Emperor Septimus Severus began construction on a thermal bath complex which was to become the largest and most beautiful in Rome.
Inaugurated ten years later by his son Caracalla, it remained in operation up until the 6th century when the Ostrogaths, under Totilla, sacked it, destroying the hydraulic installations.

Via Veneto: probably the most famous of all Roman avenues, immortalized by Federico Fellini in the film 'La Dolce Vita', which depicted its wild, 1950's-style nightlife. At its bustling hub is Piazza Barberini on the Porta Pinciana, flanked by hotels, clubs, shops and luxurious cafes.
