The neighborhoods we singled out… in Rome
Rome has everything we would want from a modern city whose history is so long that it acts as a pole of attraction for millions of visitors every year. It has managed to harmoniously combine its historic center and keep it alive over the years and this is one of the key elements that enchant the visitor.
Rome is easy to get around on foot but also has means of transport that will make your trip even more comfortable. But we suggest you walk it, get lost in its alleys, taste its delicacies and smell its genuine aromas.
For its historic center, there is probably no need for introductions as it gathers famous squares, sights and many fountains. The Colosseo located at its southeastern end takes you back to the classical era with the epic duels that took place back then. Continuing, at Foro Romano & Palatino in today‘s Roman Forum which is a large area with ruins of marble structures, columns and floor plans. On the hill of the Capitol located next to the Roman forum are the 3 imposing buildings the Palazzo Senatorio, the Palazzo dei Conservatori and the Palazzo Nuovo and in front of them is the famous Piazza Venezia, which through the via del Corso is connected to the historic Piazza del Popolo in a series of shops, churches, monuments and picturesque buildings. In the middle of this route you will also find the famous steps of Piazza di Spagna, a meeting point and flirting, since the young Romans used to offer roses to the girls sitting on the steps, the Pantheon the famous temple that is dedicated to all the Gods and is considered an architectural “miracle“ that even today its geometry impresses. Also you should not miss visiting the Fontana di Trevi throw a coin and make a wish! The Italians say that with a coin you return to the eternal city.
In the Vatican neighborhood you will find the Vatican museum which originally started as a small collection of sculptures but over the years has turned into one of the most impressive museums in the world. In the famous St. Peter’s Square you will find the entrance of St. Peter‘s Basilica with many people visiting it. Don‘t forget to climb on its dome and see the panoramic view of the city of Rome.
Trastevere In the Trastevere neighborhood hides the authentic Rome, it is located on the west bank of the Tiber River and in its alleys still holds the authentic beauty of Rome. In its alleys it hosts modern restaurants, cafes and popular clubs and that is why it is a pole of attraction for the youth. It is no coincidence that this area also hosts one of the city‘s universities.
Villa Borghese is the most central, well–known and popular park in Rome and is suitable for all ages. Inside the park there are children‘s cots, lakes, a zoo, a cinema, cafes, restaurants as well as the Galleria Borghese, with well–known works of art. You can walk around it or rent bikes for a more enjoyable ride. Italians also visit it as a park for picnics and breaths of coolness during the summer months.
