ROME ITALY STOCK PHOTOS, STOCK PICTURES & PHOTO ART PRINTS
Stock photos gallery of Rome, Italy landmarks & travel sights. Rome is the capital of Italy and of the old Roman Empire. Its historic centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The Roman Republic was wealthy, powerful and stable before it became an empire. According to tradition, Rome became a republic in 509 BC. However, it took a few centuries for Rome to become the great city of popular imagination, and it only became a great empire after the rule of Augustus (Octavian). By the 3rd century BC, Rome had become the pre-eminent city of the Italian peninsula, having conquered and defeated the Sabines, the Etruscans, the Samnites and most of the Greek colonies in Sicily, Campania and Southern Italy in general.
Rome is a city of dreams, romance and has an endless list of famous landmark sites. From the Colosseum to the Vatican and The Forum our picture and photo collections capture some of Rome’s most famous landmarks.
The Trevi Fountain (Italian: Fontana di Trevi) is a fountain in the Trevi rione in Rome, Italy. Standing 25.9 meters (85 feet) high and 19.8 meters (65 feet) wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city, and it is one of the most famous fountains in the world.
The Colosseum, or the Coliseum, originally the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: Amphitheatrum Flavium, Italian Anfiteatro Flavio or Colosseo), is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire. It is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman engineering.
