  • If you go to the Piazza del Popolo is worth look at the Puerta del Popolo a triumphal arch which was the main entrance to the city. It was built by the Medici Pope Pius IV. In it you can see sculpted the coat of arms of the Medici and the statues of San Pablo and San Pedro. A century later was commissioned to decorate it to Bernini for the reception of the Queen Cristina of Sweden, once this abandon Protestantism and embrace Christianity. It also served to greet Pope Pius VII after his imprisonment by Napoleon in France.

  • Is a gate of the Aurelian walls. The external facade was commissioned Michelangelo, which, for your time, handed the task to Nanni di Baccio Bigio, who built the gate between 1562 and 1656. The four columns of the façade are from the old St. Peter's Basilica. The inner façade was designed by Bernini, and inaugurated in 1655.

  • Upon entering Rome Flaminio road once this passed under the gate or was otherwise, I also get off at Flaminio Metro station, stood in front of the gate. Provided by Michelangelo in the gate seen from the station was also the coat of arms of the Medici Pope Pius IV ordered this gate, so elegant. View look different and simple design, Bernini worked on the other side and pass through the gate, one of the Gates is very interesting. Coat of arms of Alexander VII ordered it converted into a square of side gate is Christina Queen of Sweden in Rome when, so Keith House. I enjoy deeper, studying from home with the name of the Pope's coat of arms is the coat of arms of the Pope ordered that the Roman cultural origin home is often so.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
