About Rome

Including tips for the best time to visit Rome

Ancient history comes alive down every street of Italy's capital. Many of the ruins depict stories of the powerful empire that once spanned three continents, making Rome an open-air museum thanks to iconic monuments like the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum. The former gladiator arena is the city's centerpiece, and brings to mind all the brutal games once held on its stage for thousands of roaring spectators. Visit the impressively preserved Pantheon to experience even more of the Eternal City's golden age.

With over 900 churches and many beautiful basilicas among them, Rome is also home to the city-state of the Vatican, the seat of the Catholic Church. St. Peter's Basilica is a tourist hotspot, but treasures like Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel and countless other masterpieces are held inside the Vatican's great museums.

Like any other Italian city, the local food varies from region to region. In Rome, the trademark dishes are "cacio e pepe"—a deliciously simple pecorino cheese and pepper pasta—and "spaghetti carbonara."

Don't miss other landmarks like the iconic Trevi Fountain, the Borghese Gallery, or Piazza Navona and Piazza di Spagna. The weather is best between April and June, perfect for a walk or bike ride through Villa Borghese park.

Rome was awesome.

July 13, 2020

Rome was awesome. Because of the Corona Virus, tourism is way down. There were no lines or waiting. Many shops were closed and we couldn't exchange dollars for Euros. We used our ATM card without a problem. If you are renting a car, beware of the following scam. Metered parking is a great deal--four euro for eight hours. ATAC gives tickets even when you are legal and your parking receipt is on the dash. The Capitol Police, the Metro Police, and the Carabinieri all told us the same thing, "ATAC are not cops, the ticket was wrong." ATAC told us if we wanted to fight the ticket to get a lawyer and fight it in court. We decided to pay the 30 Euro fine at a local Tabachichi (Tobacco Shop).

Came the end of a June after lockdown in Italy over.

June 29, 2020

Came the end of a June after lockdown in Italy over. Still could not believe no one on the streets. Many hotels, resturants, cafes & shops still closed. Felt like I was on. Private tour of Rome. Still wearing masks and social distancing on buses and metros. Very sad , so many will not be able to enjoy Italy or Europe this summer.

A trip of a lifetime.

June 27, 2020

A trip of a lifetime. We hired a private chauffeur and a Mercedes Benz to drive us around and show us the sights. I would recommend that to anyone. When there call Bruno. He does not speak english, but we were able to communicate with him by using the translate feature on our cell phone. Vatican City is a must see. The lines are long so come early. Make sure that the pope is not having mass.........if he is, the basilica will be closed. The basilica is awesome, we spent eight hours there. You can get lost in here. Mass is offered every hour on the hour. To me personally, the loud tourists were a major distraction.

Every rock here tells a story. - Be careful and watch your private stuff. Not very suitable for driving and parking anywhere in Big city - our rental car was scratched by someone right after after parking in the street parking area. Thousands of people everywhere around landmarks. + great food obviously

April 2, 2020

No doubt it's a world-class city, as known its incredibly busy and for this reason, I would not visit again, the heat is incredible and the thousands of men offering you sketchy bottled water doesn't help. The city has a cool neighbourhood Trastevere this is recommendable.
