Plenty of the best attractions and sights are free to enter, as are the experiences of simply wandering the streets, people watching and window-shopping. One great example of a cost-free activity that grants you a close look at a piece of ancient history is the Mouth of Truth. This carved stone is housed in front of the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin in a locked portico, and dates back to the 4th century. Legend has it that the stone face will eat the hand of a liar if offered towards its mouth. A great photo opportunity and popular with kids and adults alike!
The nearby Piazza Navona is the city’s most iconic public square, brimming with baroque architecture, opulent fountains and charming outdoor cafés. The square is built over what was once an arena in AD 86 and later the site of Rome’s principal market. There are three beautiful fountains situated over the square, the grandest of which is Bernini’s Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, which ingeniously portrays the four rivers; Nile, Ganges, Danube and Plate in human form. The design is spectacularly intricate, involving palm trees, lions, horses and a striking obelisk.
Arguably the best pizza place in Rome, Pinsere Roma is a hugely popular lunch spot that attracts tourists and locals alike for its fresh and innovative ingredients. The choice is huge so it’s a good idea to pick a variety and share around, and the price is so reasonable that it’ll be hard to stop at just one!
Enjoy your trip to the magnificent Rome, Italy!
