Movies about Rome

I want to visually inspire my 16 year old son for our upcoming adventure with movies that take place in Rome. Any suggestions?

I think there was a thread on this at one time - not that I could ever find it - Roman Holiday with Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn is one.

Three Coins in the Fountain - although I suspect it's not a film for a 16 year old male.

Thanks Sally. "Teen boy" are the operative words here as you suspected. There has got to be something.

I recommend the excellent BBC series I Claudius (although I could not persuade my husband or 15 year old son to watch it before our last visit to Rome)

The GlobeTrekker series is geared to a more youthful audience. While Ian is my favorite host, the others are also fine and fun.

You can buy the videos on Amazon.
