What to do in Rome
Rome is called the “Eternal City” for its rich history. After being the centre of the Roman Empire, it’s now Italy’s capital. Rome is also one of the world’s top tourist destinations because you can find iconic landmarks, art treasures, wonderful sights, and amazing food. It’s a feast for your senses.
To make the most of your trip, just follow the old saying - “when in Rome, do as the Romans do.” Feel the might of the gladiators and the roar of the crowds as you visit the Colosseum. Be amazed by the majestic Pantheon and the Circus Maximus.
Have buildings ever made you speechless? Go wander the Vatican Museums and find Michelangelo’s paintings within the walls of the Sistine Chapel. Other iconic places you see are St. Peter’s Basilica, Castel Sant’Angelo, and Piazza Navona.
Rome is also known for fashion too. With heaps of talented Italian fashion designers, you’ll find shops for all budgets. For high-end shopping, go on trip to the Spanish Steps and Via Condotti. Find the mid-price shops at Via Cola di Rienzo. And if you’re in Rome for bargains, spare your Sunday morning for the Porta Portese Flea Market. Have your evening in Roma at Campo de’ Fiori. It’s a market by day, but it turns into party central at night. But if you’d rather go on a culinary tour of Rome, shops are all around the city for your Italian food fix.
End your Roman holiday with a stop at the Trevi Fountain. Just turn your back to it and toss a Euro coin over your left shoulder, to wish for a guaranteed return trip to Rome. And with our help, we’ll make that wish come true!
