Rome is the largest city and capital of Italy, located on River Tiber. The city has been the scene of many historical movements, from the rise and fall of the Roman Empire to the appointment of the Pope in the middle ages and the Italian Renaissance. Much of the city's long lived history still stands strong on the streets and in the museums of Rome. In amongst ancient architecture and world-famous monuments, Rome has developed into a modern metropolis where food, family and religion are widely celebrated.

Rome's port is located in the seaside town of Civitavecchia, located 75km from Rome. Trains and shuttle busses travel between the port and Rome.

Sights to See

Where to begin? Drop a coin into Rome's largest and most famous fountain, the Trevi Fountain. If legend is true, a coin in the fountain means you are sure to return to Rome. Visit the Vatican and explore the fantastic complex of Vatican Museums. At the Forum you can admire the park and spy what is left of Ancient Rome's centre. For history that is much more preserved, wander the Pantheon and take in the spectacular sights of the 7th century Catholic Church. Walk the iconic Spanish Steps that join Piazza di Spagna with Piazza Trinita dei Monti.

What's for Lunch

In the birthplace of pizza and pasta, you really can't go wrong. Taste the authentic flavours at one of the city's traditional pizzerias, enjoy a delicious fix of caffeine at a cafe or sample a bit of everything at an enoteca, a wine and deli styled eatery.

If you see only one thing...

You can't visit Rome without taking in the magnificent size and stature of the ancient Colosseum.

Local speak

When in Rome, do as the Romans do and order a coffee by saying, 'Un caffè per favour?'


Channel Rome's innate style by bringing home a bag or shoes made from Italian leather.
