The Mesmerizing Rome

Rome is without any doubt one the most beautiful cities in Europe. Every year millions of tourists come from all over the world to admire the tremendous masterpieces of Roman art and architectural sights.

Rome is best enjoyed slowly, like a glass of dry, Italian red wine. Allow yourself the chance to see it properly by making your own visiting agenda. Explore the city by choosing a small section every day, leaving you enough time to indulge in a cup of cappuccino or a scoop of a fine Italian home-made ice cream at one of the dozens of ice cream shops that are so typical to Rome.

Another major hint is to save the attractions that are close to your hotel for the last moment; you may be tempted to do exactly the opposite, but in Rome you have so much to contemplate that you will lose the track of time without even known it.

Worst case scenario, if you don’t get to see all Rome’s wonders in one trip, just toss a coin into Fontana di Trevi before you leave and legend says that you will definitely put your feet on Roman grounds again in the future.

Pasta and Vespas

Travellers come to Rome for various reasons: for ancient Roman history, for artistic enlightenment, or to eat so much pasta and pizza that they simply cannot lift themselves off the chairs. Start your sightseeing with the immaculate ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, then explore the sacred remains of ancient settlements, and finish by dancing all night long in the ultra modern Italian clubs. There is nothing like the Italian reggae on this earth!

While the Coliseum and the Vatican make a good part of the Rome’s identity, you will feel the true vibe of the city away from the notorious sights-in neighbourhood coffee bars and from those famous Vespas riders that exchange lovely warm greetings while passing on paving stoned backstreets. For a city this stylish and accomplished, Rome’s most generous asset is its remarkable accessibility.
