Rome

No city in the world reflects history as much as Rome. Lying between the hills and the sea, it was originally built on the famous “Seven Hills” that still form part of the city. Although the glorious past of the Eternal City still lives in every corner, the ancient is mixed with the modern, and what results is something better than both. Rome is nowadays a vibrant city, a center of culture, art, business and sport.

History

Through three millennia Rome rose as a mighty Empire, declined as corruption spread over, lived through the Middle Ages and made her way to the 21st century. Doubtless the long history of this city has left traces of every age: from the majestic vestiges of classical antiquity to the huge Renaissance mansions, from the flamboyant baroque churches and the masterpieces of the Vatican to modern and contemporary architectural highlights, today there is a lot to see in Rome.

Connectivity

Located in the central part of Italy, Rome is also  the ideal point where to start one or two days journeys: Ostia Antica, Tivoli, Castel Gandolfo, Florence, Pompeii and Capri are just the best known venues that can be easily reached by car or by train  from the city.

Culture

The city is so vast and rich that is hard to explain in few words. Besides the classic world-known symbols, from the Colosseum to Trevi Fountain, Vatican, Navona Square and Pantheon, each neighborhood brings a different mood and a different flavor to taste:

Campo de’ Fiori, the celebrated open-air market, is one of the best known and liveliest places in Rome but also has a brilliant night-life, being one of the most popular meeting places in Rome.

Trastevere, once considered the outskirts of Rome, today is the perfect place to glimpse a bit of the old world while still enjoying the lifestyle of today's Romans.

Monti housed the poorest locals back in ancient Roman times, when it was called Suburra ("sub urbis"), Latin for "under city." In recent years, this neighborhood has morphed into the place to see and be seen, especially for bohemian thirty-somethings.

Eur is the rising star of Romans nights. A business area, now its brimming with life. Eur is a perfect place to spend some very chic and exclusive nights.

Dining

No trip to Rome is complete without enjoying  a genuine food experience:  from family run trattorias and pizzerias, to fancier, hip restaurants, Roman food is generous, rich in flavors and character and strictly connected to local rituals.

The best coffee shops of the city are located all around the Pantheon area: don’t forget to drink your espresso or cappuccino as the Romans do, standing up at a bar.

Many of the good pizzerias are so popular that they do not take reservations. Get there when they open, or plan to wait an hour or more in a line.

When picking an ice cream parlor look for the sign proclaiming “produzione propria” (home-made) and check a few flavors even if you don’t like them: banana, for example, must be gray. If it’s yellow, well there must be dye in it.
