Things to do in Rome in September
The Pantheon is one of the most well-known buildings in Italy and is a must-visit during your holiday in Rome. Dedicated to the seven planetary divinities, the interior of this building is made of marble and is known for its impressive giant dome.
Inside the Pantheon you'll find loads of artwork, including sculptures, as well as the crypts of several important kings. If you visit on a Sunday you'll be allowed to enter for free.
If you're a fan of water features, a visit to the Trevi Fountain is must. Completed in 1762, this fountain features figures of Neptune, the god of the sea, who is flanked on either side by Tritons.
Tradition dictates that if you toss a coin into the fountain, you're sure to return to Rome. Even if the prophecy doesn't come true, by throwing a coin in the fountain, you'll be making a donation to one of the city's charities.
