World-famous landmarks literally litter the city – from the Pantheon to the Coliseum, the Spanish Steps to the Trevi Fountain, and not forgetting the Vatican’s treasures. This is where history comes to life as you wonder round a city where gladiators would meet and gods were worshiped.
However, it is more than just phenomenal sightseeing that captivates visitors to Rome. As a city that embodies the many passions of the Italians – food, shopping, art and wine – the exhilarating pace of life in Rome sweeps everyone along in its path. Excellent transport links as well as Rome’s reputation as a city easy to navigate by foot, make this a wonderful short-break destination. But with so much to see in the city, as well as many green spaces and truly wonderful places and experiences within a short distance of the city, Rome is a perfect base for longer stays also.
Chic living and a cosmopolitan way of embracing city life was arguably developed in Rome. Our perfect day would start with a cappuccino outside a cafe in the Piazza Navona, a leisurely stroll through the narrow lanes of Trastevere, lunch in a Trattoria and a spot of shopping along the Via Dei Condotti and Via del Corso. But with so much to offer, why not stay longer?
