Museo e Galleria Borghese (Italy). 'Everybody’s heard of Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel, but Rome is as much about baroque art as it is about the Renaissance, and the lovely Museo e Galleria Borghese is the place to see it. You’ll need to book ahead but it’s a small price to pay to see Bernini’s amazing baroque sculptures, as well as works by Canova, Caravaggio, Raphael and Titian.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/italy/rome/sights/gallery/museo-galleria-borghese

Trevi Fountain (Italy). 'A stop at Rome’s largest and most famous fountain is a traditional rite of passage for visitors to Rome. Every day crowds gather to toss coins into the foutain’s water and ensure that one day they’ll return to the Eternal City. The fountain, designed by Nicola Salvi in the 18th century, is a gloriously over-the-top rococo affair depicting wild horses, mythical figures and cascading rock falls.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/italy/rome/sights/fountain/trevi-fountain

Pantheon (Italy). 'The best preserved of Rome’s ancient monuments, the Pantheon is a truly remarkable building. Its huge columned portico and thick-set walls impress, but it’s only when you get inside that you get the full measure of the place.
