Rome


Rome at a Glance

For many travellers one visit to Rome is not enough. The city is distinctive, energetic, breathtaking, hectic, joyous, eventful… we could go on and on, but its easier to just say that Rome is like no other city

Its architecture spans from republican to imperial to early-Christian to medieval to baroque to modern times; a feat not accomplished by many other cities. The people are boisterous, proud and welcoming. History is dripping from every nook and cranny. Gastronomy is comforting, sumptuous and always paired with the perfect wine.

It is an addictive city- once you go, you will want to return again and again.

Not to be missed The sights of Rome are endless. In fact, staying a full seven days would not allow you to capture them all. We’ve put together a list of the city’s most visited and noted attractions, but recommend you also spend time wandering the winding streets and getting lost in its beauty.

  • Trevi Fountain.
  • Spanish Steps.
  • The Pantheon.
  • The Colosseum and the Forum Romanum.
  • The Vatican.
  • St. Peter’s Basilica.
  • San Giovanni in Laterano.
  • Piazza Navona.
  • Piazzo del Popolo.
  • Sta. Maria Maggiore.

Uniquely Rome Home to the world’s most famous ceiling frescoes, the Sistine Chapel draws millions of visitors each year. It was Pope Julius II who commissioned Michelangelo to paint the ceiling, in an attempt to begin restoring Rome to its former glory. Painted solely by Michelangelo, the frescoes were completed between 1808 and 1812, a short time frame considering the difficulty of the project and the attention of detail that is paid to all the figures. Tours of the Sistine Chapel are readily available, but it is advised to purchase tickets in advance as they do sell out.

Good to know about Rome The sights, sounds and tastes of Rome can easily leave you forgetting the practical details. We’ve brought them together for you:

  • Climate: While spring and autumn are the best times of year to visit, Rome enjoys a year-round mild climate. December to February can be rainy though.
  • City Transportation: Rome’s historic centre is easily navigated on foot, but the city does have an extensive metro and bus network.
  • Accommodation: One of the busiest tourist destinations in Europe, it is advised to book accommodations well in advance. See Rome Hotels for more details.
  • Eating Out: For the most authentic home-cooking, visit at least one trattoria during your stay. A trattoria is a family-run eating establishment.
