Your travel guide to Rome
Be prepared for an astonishing mix of ancient history and modern life encapsulated in Rome, Italy. From The Spanish Steps to the swish bars in the center, from the Pantheon to the restaurants in Trastevere, Rome attracts millions of tourists looking for a taste of historical monuments, art galleries and culinary delights. Walking through the Roman Forum, up to the Arch of Constantine and the Roman Coliseum, one can imagine daily life in the Roman Empire (with a little help from a savvy tourist guide!)
A fascinating metropolis smaller than most of its counterparts, Rome is the capital of La Dolce Vita (The Sweet Life) immortalized by Anita Ekberg in Federico Fellini's film of the same name in which the Trevi Fountain gained world-wide fame. A hub for tourists wanting to throw a few coins over their shoulder for good luck and art students sketching away in an attempt to capture the beauty of the Trevi Fountain, this architectural masterpiece is best appreciated by night when the Tritons and horses truly come to life.
No visit to Rome would be complete without a tour of The Vatican City and its museums especially for the Angels and Demons fans among you, no doubt in search of the four famous churches so vividly brought to life by Dan Brown. Not forgetting a trip to The Sistine Chapel, or a wander round Palazzo Venezia for a glance at the famous Mussolini's window. The historical centre (a UNESCO World Heritage site) is home to Piazza Navona and Campo de' Fiori, full of street entertainers and a vegetable and fish market each morning. Termini station is where Rome's metro lines meet and where you can hop on trains to Tivoli for the stunning villas and Ostia to see a lost roman city to rival Pompeii.
