  • Free Things to Do: "Enter the Pantheon during some rainfall and you'll witness a cascade of rain entering through the large circular hole at the top of the dome. Onlookers are often marveled by the fact that the rain doesn't flood the floors of the monument. Rather, it creates a waterfall onto the resplendent marble floor and gradually drains away."
  • Historic Sites: "Make sure to check out Rome's famous coffee bar, Tazza d'Oro just around the corner on Via dei Pastini."
