Rome should be at the top of every traveller’s list, it is one of the most historically significant and beautiful cities in the world. Without a doubt, Rome is one of the most spectacular cities in the world.
Things you must see & do
It’s not easy to single out the must dos for Rome because this city offers so much. Start by making a wish at the Trevi fountain and take all 12 flights of the beautiful Spanish Steps.
Visit the stunning Vatican and while you’re there, view Michelangelo’s ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, join a tour through the Colosseum and take a stroll around the Roman Forum to get a real sense of ancient Rome.
Finally, take some time out from the chaos of the city and chill out on Palantine Hill – the views are unbelievable.
While being amazed by sights of the city, don’t forget to absorb the culture. Food and drink is an important part of the Roman culture, so when in Rome, do as the Romans do! Start your morning with a visit to a coffee bar for a Roman espresso, make time for a delicious gelato, try a local specialty like Gnocchi alla romana, and finish the day with a vino rosso di casa (house red wine).
There are close to 1,700 novels set in Rome in days gone by, so while in Rome immerse your body and mind in its present and past.
If you value your life and your sanity, don’t even think about driving in Rome. Italian drivers are chaotic and impatient, the roads are unclearly laid out, there are very few signs, and parking is rare. Be safe and travel by foot, bus or metro.
