Rome is a treasure trove of historic sights. Wherever you go in this charming, vibrant, noisy city you'll find something to remind you of its long, illustrious history and religion, from the magnificence of the Colosseum to the awe-inspiring Vatican City. Churches and fountains and statues beckon on every corner, in every square. And then there's the modern side to Rome, with its hectic traffic, elegant sidewalk cafes, and stores selling some of the most exquisite leatherwear, as well as designer fashion from all over the world.
Of course, the food is sublime, and ancient architecture is breathtaking and the people are vibrant. The best way to soak up the atmosphere is to sit at one of the pavement cafes sipping a coffee or something refreshing, and watch the people go about their business as they have done for centuries.
Once you're refreshed, it's time to explore Rome's magnificent treasures, including the magnificent Sistine Chapel, created in the 16th Century, which is decorated with marble taken from Ancient Roman monuments. This chapel is part of the exquisite church of Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the oldest churches in the city, and one of four great pilgrimage churches in Rome. There's also the famous Colosseum, the largest Roman ampitheatre in the world, the Circus Maximus, which was once the largest stadium in the city and Palatine Hill, one of the seven hills in Rome, which is home to the Roman Forum, the Farnese Gardens and the Palatine Museum.
Spend time in St Peter's Square, where you'll find the renowned Vatican City, sit on the famous Spanish Steps in Piazza di Spagnia, then throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain to ensure you return to Rome one day. And that's just a taste of what's in store in this magnificent city!
