Aside from the usual touristy sites, a visit to the catacombs is a must. The guide told us that there were a total of 60 catacombs in Rome but as of today, only five are open to the public. This catacomb is one of the biggest but we only got to reach a few a kilometers downwards. If you´re claustrophobic, this isn´t for you but for those who aren´t, it´s very intersting. We weren´t allowed to take photos inside so I ended with these photos only.
Above photo is the world famous Trevi Fountain. It´s spectacular, my photo didn´t do justice to the whole work. Below is the Spanish Steps. IMHO, there´s nothing spectacular about the Spanish Steps. It´s just a set of 138 stairs which lead to the Trinita` dei Monti church at the top. Historically, this was built between 1723-1725 and structurally, it was known to be the widest staircase in Europe. It´s called Spanish Steps because it´s located at the base of the Piazza di Spagna, also near the Spanish Embassy.
A very interesting fact for those who love high end shopping, the Via Condetti (a long street which leads directly to the Spanish Steps) is where you can find your fave the high end stores like Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Céline, Hérmes, etc. Since we´re on a budget, I only did some window shopping, hahaha! :)
