Why you should go
From impressive Roman ruins to historical architecture and an artistic flair, Rome is a destination which is bound to leave a lasting impression. Whether you’re following the tracks of past emperors, paying the Pope a visit, brushing up on your art knowledge or just simply trying to find the best slice of pizza, there’s something to suit a diverse range of tastes.
A trip to Rome is never complete without a visit to the jaw-dropping Colosseum, and even if you’re not a sightseeing person, this ancient amphitheatre is a must. At around 1,946 years old, it’s considered as one of the most remarkable buildings in the world and it will also give you the chance to channel your inner Russell Crowe in Gladiator! Other key buildings you should find time for include the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore and Piazza Navona.
For art and culture lovers, you will be run off your feet with things to do on your trip to Rome. With works from Michelangelo, Caravaggio and Raphael evident throughout the city, you’ll be amongst the creations of some of the finest talent in the world. Foodies are also spoilt for choice - make sure you sample the city’s finest gelato at Via Vodice or go to Da Artenio for delicious pizza.
When you should go
Luckily, Rome is a beautiful city break destination all year round and it’s more likely than not that you will get good weather on your trip. Easter time tends to be a busy period for pilgrims, whilst August is a time when locals head off on their summer holidays. We’d suggest you visit in May or October to make the most of this fantastic destination.
Where you should stay
If you’re looking for an area where you’ll be in walking distance from all the key sights, stay around the Pantheon, Campo Fiori or Piazza Navona. Other locations which are not as centrally located but still just as charming consist of Trastevere, Monti and the Barberini area. As public transport is reasonably priced and stress-free, no matter the district you decide to stay in, getting to where you want to go is easy and straightforward.
It’s hard to plan a travel itinerary with so much choice, so let us help you out with some of our top picks and best-kept secrets:
- Vatican Gardens – if you’re looking for something slightly more pristine compared to the old, cobbled streets of Rome, book in advance and visit the enchanting Vatican gardens. The symmetrical hedges and pretty floral displays that are on offer will give you the chance to see a different side of the city.
- Sant'Ignazio Church – the dome illusion which can be found in the church of Sant’Ignazio came about after there wasn’t enough money to complete the planned architectural structure in 1642. Painter, Andrea Pozza, decided he could fix the problem by creating a flat piece of work which appeared to be in the shape of a dome – genius!
- San Lorenzo – escape the madness of well-known tourist spots in San Lorenzo. It’s a hive of activity for carefree individuals who are looking to experience an alternative side to the city, with the likes of street parties and low-cost bars giving it a bohemian edge.
