The capital of Italy, Rome blends ancient architecture, modern politics, religion and beloved cuisine in an energetic, charming city.
Walking around Rome is often the best way to enjoy the many highlights, but if you want to cover more ground in less time you can rent bicycles and scooters or ride along the streets on a Segway. Although taxis are a pricier option, they can be a convenient way of crossing the city. Public transportation options include buses, the Metro, trams, trolleybuses and the light railway. You can purchase single-journey, 24-hour, 48-hour, 72-hour tickets and monthly passes.
Your flights to Rome will bring you to exciting places like the Ostia Antica, the impressive remnants of a port city in ancient Rome, which once contributed to the wealth of the empire. You can also visit the Parco del Colle Oppio to see the remnants of Nero’s villa. Take time to explore Rome’s smallest district, the fairytale-like Quartiere Coppedè, soak up the views from Janiculum Hill, take a trip to the peaceful Tiber Island and admire the interiors of Palazzo Doria Pamphilj.
Go to an authentic pizzeria to eat a truly heavenly slice of pizza. Hearty, homemade Italian pasta is never far away, either. For dessert, treat yourself to a nice, creamy gelato. Italian cooking is world famous, and it will be worth your while to look for some restaurants where you can acquaint yourself with more than just pizza and pasta. In general, Italians don’t care much for breakfast, and a warm meal is eaten both at lunchtime and in the evening. During your stay in Rome, you should expect to be able to dine at restaurants between 1:00 p.m. and 3 p.m., and from 7:30 p.m. onward. If you’d like to enjoy an evening meal at a particularly popular restaurant, it’s best to reserve a table in advance.
