“Yes, I have finally arrived to this Capital of the World! I now see all the dreams of my youth coming to life… Only in Rome is it possible to understand Rome.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
This is what Goethe said about Rome and we totally agree. You can only appreciate and understand the Eternal city if you see it through your own eyes. So, if you are looking for some more reasons to visit Rome, here you find our list.
- ART AND HISTORY
Rome is an open air museum and a UNESCO World Heritage site. You can admire incredible archtectural feats like the Pantheon; ruins from the Roman Empire like the Colosseum and the Roman Forum; monuments and churches from different historical periods. There are plenty of things to see and museums to visit (like the Capitoline Museums, the Ara Pacis and the MAXXI) and they are all great!
- STUNNING PIAZZAS AND FOUNTAINS
Fountains are almost everywhere in the center of Rome, surrounded by beautiful piazzas, the heart of the Roman (and Italian) life. The Trevi Fountain is one of the most beautiful in the world. And then we have the Fountain of Four Rivers in Piazza Navona, designed by Bernini; La Barcaccia Fountain at the bottom of the Spanish Steps; The Fountain of the Turtles in the Jewish Ghetto…and many more. Why don’t you count them all?
The Roman cusine is an experience into taste and history. Have you ever heard about the famous “pasta alla carbonara” or “amatriciana”? Only in Rome you can find the authentic recipe. Not to mention gelato, pizza and wine: you’ll be spoilt for choice for every kind of food and wine tours.
- LAKES, BEACHES AND OTHER CITIES
Not everybody knows that Rome is really close to the sea. Ostia is the nearest beach to the city, at about 30 kilometers, but other famous places -like Nettuno or Anzio- are at 60 kilometers. The town of Castelgandolfo, on the “castelli romani”, also has a beautiful lake. But all round the Eternal City you can find small and pretty towns to visit. Using Rome as a base, you can easily reach Naples, Florence or Orvieto, for example.
- GOOD CLIMATE
The best season for a trip to Rome? Any time! From March to May the city is colourful and smells nice. Rome in Summer is quite hot, but you still can find places where to stay cool. From September to November it’s a bit rainy, but has a lot of beautiful and mild days. October is a great month for a Roman holiday. In the winter it’s less crowded and it’s not very cold. Rome’s magic atmosphere is always there.
