IN A NUTSHELL
The Eternal City’s nickname is well-earned: it’s hard to walk down any Roman street and not see something ancient and magical. For lovers of art and architecture, it’s a wonderland. The Coliseum, the Forum, the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Square…
And if you get overloaded with the big attractions, head down almost any street and you’ll find new Renaissance palazzos and Baroque churches to explore. At the end of the day, stop at a bar for aperitivo, the local cure for a busy day, and you’ll understand what ‘la dolce vita’ is all about.
Discover medieval alleys and small piazzas by walking or renting a bicycle. The subway is working nicely as well.
The Colosseum, Pizza, Vatican City, Hidden Treasures, Gladiators, Vespas.
