Rome

The classical Italian architecture, rich cultural heritage and sun-soaked piazzas all contribute to the unique atmosphere of Italy's spectacular capital city.

The city of Rome houses nearly 3 million people, and its residents are among the most passionate and talkative on the planet, constantly divulging their views to visitors on the best restaurants, or the state of Italian football. The pace of life here is relentless, save for the post-lunch nap that many true Romans consider to be customary.

Rome, often referred to as the city of seven hills, is divided into neighbourhoods and separated by the Tiber River. Characterful cobbled streets are commonplace. Get hold of a map to help guide you around the city. On the whole, it is best to get around Rome on foot; far easier than trying to find other ways of getting around the windy, narrow roads. However, buses are available.

You may lose your way occasionally! This isn’t all bad. You may discover a backstreet treasure trove, such as a small local bakery, which bakes delicious fresh bread or a restaurant that the locals like to keep a secret.

You can’t visit Rome and not find yourself in awe of its phenomenal and simply unique architectural heritage. Rome houses are some of the most spectacular historical sites in the world, with Renaissance wonders such as the Palazzo Senatorio and the famous Sistine Chapel located within Vatican City. Alongside this, you’ll see some wonderful examples of Baroque architecture, including the unparalleled St. Peter's Basilica, the beautiful Spanish Steps, and the ornate Trevi Fountain.

Chart the history of the remarkable and infamous Roman Empire, by taking a literal stroll through history via the Roman Forum, whose tour of Rome culminates with a viewing of the iconic Colosseum. This is not merely a tour for history buffs; it is an unmissable part of Roman culture.

Italy is known for its great coffee and delicious gelato (ice cream). No trip to Rome would be complete without trying them out in one of the picturesque town squares dotted around the city, such as the Piazza Navona. It goes without saying that Romans live for food and wine, so there is probably nowhere better to eat in the world. Italian signature dishes are loved by so many, and their wine is renowned throughout the world.

In summary, Rome is a beautiful city with a rich and attractive culture that attracts visitors from every corner of the earth.
