A trip to Rome is bound to be fashionable, cultural and delicious. A truly romantic city, alongside the incredible artwork, historical sites and Baroque buildings you’ll discover an idyllically slow-paced lifestyle that concentrates on the good things in life.
Idyllic and fashionable
Rome is undeniably charismatic, and it’s easy to see why this city is such a popular Italian holiday destination. It has all the hallmarks of an eye-opening yet relaxed holiday: phenomenal art galleries, museums and historical sites are teamed with a laidback ambience that concentrates on relaxing, eating and drinking.
We usually like to recommend the lesser-known spots, but to visit Rome and not see icons like the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain would really be a shame. Instead, use mealtimes as an excuse to discover the local hot spots, exploring the winding streets for lively pizzerias and cosy neighbourhood trattorias, tucking into hearty pastas made with just a few fresh ingredients, thin pizzas and impeccable white wines. Don’t forget a taste of creamy gelato and strong coffee, too. Pretty plazas offer bustling cafes and gorgeous architecture, with colourful classic vespas whizzing past.
A holiday to Rome is bound to be belíssimo.
Why visit Rome?
· Is it really a visit to Rome without exploring the fascinating historical attractions? Icons worth visiting include the impressive Colosseum and Arch of Constantine, Vatican City, The Pantheon, the Roman Forum and Trevi Fountain, all recalling the incredible history of this cultural city. There are, of course, so many more amazing museums and historic sites that you can discover, give us a call and we can personalise our recommendations to your desires.
· Rome is the perfect place for art history buffs, too. The city has art galleries aplenty, all adorned with ancient statues, Byzantine mosaics and intricate Renaissance paintings that will make your jaw drop. Some of our favourites include Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne, a detailed statue located at Galleria Borghese and the intricate Baroque-style paintings by Caravaggio in the Contarelli Cathedral. But everywhere you go you’ll be met with unsurpassable masterpieces that showcase just how amazing European art and sculptures can be.
· The way of life here is slow and leisurely, and all about soaking up the atmosphere. They call this la dolca vita, translating to living the good life, and you certainly will while in Rome. You can while away the whole afternoon people watching and sipping smooth coffee in the picturesque plazas, and each evening you’ll see the trendiest locals flocking to small bars and cafes for aperitivo – a pre-dinner drink and nibble – where they can socialise and relax.
