Rome travel guide

The ancient seat of the progenitors of Western Civilisation, Rome is a classic European city that is a mix of historic ruins, stunning works of art & architecture, great food and a vibrant city life making it one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world.


Rich History
The traditions of Rome lay its foundation to the legends of Romulus and Remus on Palatine Hill on April 21st, 753 BCE. Since then, an unbroken cultural link has progressed with the city and permeated every facet of Rome - from art and architecture to food and traditions. The urban development of Rome began with its foundation and over 2,500 years, the cityscape has evolved into a breathtaking open-air museum that is unrivalled in the world. From the emphatic ruins of the Colosseum to the historic center in the Roman Forum and fountains of Trevi, Rome is steeped in historical riches that need to be experienced.

Art & Architecture
That Rome is a historical city with a trove of artistic treasures within its walls comes as a surprise to no one. Standing at the frontier of western art as it evolved over centuries, Rome has inspired a number of artists to continuously push the boundaries of human achievement. While the museums in Rome are home to ancient Roman and Greek statues, Renaissance frescoes adorn the city's churches and Baroque facades decorate historic piazzas. All it takes is a leisurely stroll through the city to come across masterpieces by Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Raphael and Bernini.

Wine & Dine
Visiting Rome is as much about the food as it is feasting on art and architecture. Eating out in Rome is one of the finer pleasures of visiting this unique city. While there are a number of world-class fine dining restaurants throughout the city, a true Italian culinary experience can only be felt in a local pizzeria or a neighbourhood trattoria. Preferred by the locals themselves, these eateries are renowned for their pizzas, fresh bread and pastas, freshly brewed coffee and wine straight from the hills of Castelli Romani.
