Enjoy La Dolce Vita in the Eternal City
Italy’s capital is rich in culture and offers 3000 years of history in its vast number of monuments, fountains and buildings. When in Rome, do as the Romans do and stroll the many piazzas, often described as immense open-air museums for their colossal feats of architecture, each one telling a unique story.
This ancient city is ideal for exploration on foot. The iconic sights of the historic centre are abundant, easy to find and sometimes inadvertently discovered. With the aid of a decent map, it is worth strolling the narrow streets off the main roads admiring age-old fountains or buildings and encountering photogenic piazzas. The city buzzes with life after dusk and it is perhaps unsurprising to discover that restaurants are plentiful and the quality of food almost always exceptional. Be sure to accept a cold Limoncello as a digestif after your meal if offered!
