The city of Rome is a spectacle like no other. 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.

Things to do in Rome and Lazio

  • Our tips for Rome and Lazio

    Our tips for Rome and Lazio
    • 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.
    • Cover up. When touring Rome’s many 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.
