Experience Rome with us

With your Rome Tours experience the city which is the result of 3000 years of ad hoc urban development, ancient and Renaissance architecture goes hand-in-hand with modern dwellings in this magical city. Dubbed Italy’s Eternal City, Rome harks back to a time seldom forgotten in most modern cities, with the Colosseum, Roman Forum and the Pantheon the best examples of ancient Roman life still standing today. Rome is the artist’s mecca, drawing creatives far and wide to sit at the throne of works by the likes of Michelangelo, Raphael and Bernini. This city is much more than it’s illustrious forefathers, though. Ancient treasures are brought to life by a cutting-edge food and drink scene and a culture of people determined to enjoy all the luxuries that life has to offer, gelato included.

Our tips for Rome

  • When it comes to gelato, looks can be deceiving. Those puffy overflowing mounds in many of the city’s gelaterias may look irresistible, but they are usually factory-made and filled to the brim with artificial thickeners. For truly authentic gelato, look for gelato that is flat, less bright in colour and stored in round steel canisters.
  • Invest in a fast-track entrance ticket to the Vatican. Pre-booking a skip-the-line admission ticket will save you from frustrating cues and keep you to your Rome sightseeing schedule.
  • Cover up. When touring Rome attractions, many of which are churches and religious sites, covering your legs and shoulders is a must. In hot weather, be sure to have a shawl or cardigan handy for visits.
  • When in Rome. Do as the Romans do. The best way to experience this city is with a fresh, crusty pizza slice, a humble pasta dish, and a glass of wine – enjoyed alfresco-style, of course.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: What are the key facts of The Colosseum?

    A:

    • The first games were held as a celebration of the Colosseum’s opening in 80AD. They lasted 100 days and saw the slaughtering of some 5000 animals.
    • The Colosseum was first known as the Flavian Amphitheatre after the Vespasian’s family who planned the build. It’s name was later changed to recognise the Colosso di Nerone, a giant bronze statue (around 30 metres in height) of Nero that stood nearby.
    • Following the fall of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum was used as a castle, cemetery and even a housing complex through the Middle Ages. It later fell into disrepute until restoration efforts began in the late 1900’s. Grab your tickets now to learn more about this epic, legendary landmark.
