All of Rome's main points of historical and artistic interest are easily reachable via public transportation from Termini Station, which is just a short, pleasant walk from Smart Hotel. Termini is also a main transportation hub for arriving and departing from the Eternal City, with many buses, regional and high-speed trains, plus two Metro lines connecting guests with Rome's biggest attractions, including the Spanish Steps, Via Veneto, the Vatican, various museums, and the Colosseum.
PIAZZA DI SPAGNA
Perhaps the most famous piazza in all of Rome, Piazza di Spagna is home to the monumental staircase of Trinità dei Monti, dubbed the Spanish Steps, as well as the prestigious Fontana della Barcaccia fountain by Bernini, which pops in the middle of the piazza. One of the most popular locations in Rome for important high-society and cultural events, the Spanish Steps are often filled with both tourists and locals relaxing and people-watching. In the spring, the staircase is lined with exceptional floral decorations.
Also known as the Flavium Ampitheater, the Colosseum is the most awe-inspiring monument in all of the Eternal City. Going inside with a tour guide will offer you one of the most unparalleled experiences of your life, catapulting you back in time and making you feel like a spectator watching the gladiators fight. Walking through the Colosseum's interior will give you the sensation of being in the presence of thousands of spectators giving the thumbs up or thumbs down during a vicious face-off between man and beast.
One of the most beautiful examples of Italian Baroque style, the Trevi Fountain is hidden in the façade of a noble palace. The most celebrated of all of the Roman fountains, Trevi Fountain was memorialized by the famous director Federico Fellini in his timeless film "La Dolce Vita" when actress Anita Ekberg went for a memorable swim. The fountain, featuring the majestic statue of Oceanus (god of water), is the basis of a legend that if you put your back to the fountain and throw a coin in over your shoulder, you'll be sure to return to Rome.
The biggest and most important station in Rome, the main intersection of the national train system, Termini is also a great example of modern architecture with countless shops, bars, and restaurants, serving as a place to enjoy both traveling and shopping.
