Experience Rome with us

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.

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.

Good to know

Best time to visit
Heavy tourist traffic hits Rome during the summer months, meaning lengthy cues for hotspots and busy Rome day tours in humid, sticky weather. We recommend visiting Rome just outside of the summer, both May and September are great months to experience a more laidback, authentic Rome.
Getting around
Here’s our travel breakdown of the best ways to navigate your way through Rome…
  • The best way to get around Rome is via the city’s efficient and economically friendly transit bus service. Services run around the clock and bus tickets are interchangeable with subway metro tickets, should you feel like mixing it up with an underground tube adventure.
  • Rome’s city subway runs across just two lines, Line A (marked in red) and Line B (marked in blue), and is simple enough for first-timers to use with ease.
  • One of the key things to do in Rome, the city’s historic centre is best explored on foot. A stroll through the rambling lanes and avenues will have you falling head over heels for this ancient city from the get-go. If you’re still considering what to do in Rome, Rome tours are a great way to see the city with travel costs included.
Stay Safe
Rome is a relatively safe city, but it’s always a good idea to take extra care when travelling to new places. Keep these precautions in tow so your trip can go off without a hitch…
  • On any Rome day trips, look out for pickpockets. Pickpocketing is a prevalent crime in the city, so be sure to keep your valuables close and carry small change where possible.
  • For assistance in any emergency, call 113.
  • In the evenings walk in well-lit areas and stay alert and wary of strangers, especially if you are travelling solo.
