width= The mouth of truth an image, carved from Pavonazzetto marble, of a man-like face thought to be part of a 1st century ancient Roman fountain, or perhaps a manhole cover. The most famous characteristic of the Mouth, however, is its role as a lie detector. Starting from the Middle Ages, it was believed that if a lier’s hand is put in the mouth of the sculpture, it would be bitten off. Arch of Janus width=

The Arch of Janus is the only quadrifrons triumphal arch preserved in Rome.It was built in the early 4th century of spolia, possibly in honour of Constantine I or Constantius II.The name is derived from its four-fronted, four-arched structure.

The Colosseum originally the Flavian Amphitheatre, is the largest ever built elliptical amphitheatre in the Roman Empire. It is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman engineering. Its construction started in 72 AD under the emperor Vespasian and was completed in 80 AD under Titus. .

aventineThe Piazza of the Knights of Malta

Peek through this keyhole on a piazza designed by Piranesi in 1765, and you see a garden path that ends with bushes perfectly framing the dome of St. Peter’s in the distance.The gateway, incidentally, leads to the gardens of the Knights of Malta (I Cavalieri di Malta), who are actually called the Knights of St. John Hospitaler, one of the last surviving orders of knights left over from the Crusades.

The Orange Grove The Garden of Orange Trees, was created in 1932 in commemoration of the Spanish orange tree brought to Rome by St. Dominic in 1220. This tree, according to tradition was the first planted in Italy, still miraculously exists in the garden of the monastery of Santa Sabina and can be seen through a hole in the wall of the church portico. 

Roman Forums

Many of the oldest and most important structures of the ancient city were located on or near the Forum. It was for centuries the center of Roman public life: the site of triumphal processions and elections, venue for public speeches, criminal trials, and gladiatorial matches, and nucleus of commercial affairs. Here statues and monuments commemorated the city’s great men. The teeming heart of ancient Rome, it has been called the most celebrated meeting place in the world, and in all history.

Capitoline Hill The existing design of the Piazza del Campidoglio and the surrounding palazzi was created by Renaissance artist and architect Michelangelo Buonarroti in 1536–1546. At the height of his fame he was commissioned by the Farnese Pope Paul III, who wanted a symbol of the new Rome to impress Charles V, who was expected in 1538.
