Explore Rome

Formerly the heart of the mighty Roman Empire, presently the home of the Papacy, Rome is as much historic centre as contemporary and beguiling European city. This historic and artistic capital of the world begs its visitors to enjoy its many sights, treasures, food, wine and people.



Magnificent and overwhelming, Rome rises up to crown the seven hills along the winding banks of the River Tiber. Boasting some of Europe's finest architecture, the eternal city certainly wasn't built in one day; Classical, Romanesque, Medieval and Renaissance buildings span the centuries and for at least 2000 years merchants, pilgrims and visitors have wended their way towards this magical city. Its position in the world's greatest empire, its significance as a religious and cultural centre, its turbulent centuries of upheaval, its aristocratic and papal rivalries, have led to a culturally, architecturally and artistically unique city. But Rome is not a museum; it's a colourful and vibrant city whose food, culture, scenery and ambiance make for an unrivalled city destination.



Travellling around the city
If you want to use public transport, Rome's metro offers the most convenient way of getting around the city. There are just the two metro lines which connect most of the sights of Rome. A three day pass can be bought for €18. As Rome is quite a compact city it also makes sense to visit on foot. The walk from the Trevi fountain to the Colosseum and Forum is about ten minutes with the Pantheon a similar distance from the fountain. The considerable attractions of the Vatican City are a further 15 minutes stroll beyond the Pantheon

Experiences
From guided tours to exclusive cooking lessons, we have a selection of pre-bookable experiences in Rome to make your holiday even more memorable.

When to visit
Rome is a year round city, although during spring to early summer, and late summer, temperatures are milder and the crowds not quite so intense. Do be aware that the main Italian vacation starts mid-way through August resulting in the closure of more restaurants and shops than at other times. From late October to Easter visitor attractions may have shorter visiting times and renovation and repair works tend to be carried out. As for the seasons, summers are hot; spring and autumn are delightfully mild, winters are cool and at times rainy but with many sunny days.


Food & drink
Rome has a huge choice ofplaces to eat, from sophisticated restaurants to more traditionaltrattorias. Enjoy an espresso andcornetto (croissant) for breakfast in any local bar or café, and for a light lunch, choose a tavola calda; a bar with informal tables serving a variety of dishes. For evening dining, the word ristorante usually indicates a more elaborate establishment than a cosy trattoria or rustic osteria, but the distinction can become blurred. Local carafes and bottled vintage wines are of course widely available. Rome's delightful cuisine is particularly deserved after a long morning or afternoon of sightseeing
