Rome is a bucket list destination. With so much history and architecture it really does have to be seen for itself. Two and half thousand years of history, 2.9 million residents in fewer than 500 square miles, more cultural wonders than most countries could hope to possess, The Colosseum, The Sistine Chapel, The Forum, St Peter’s Basilica …Rome has a lot going for it.
The capital of Italy is a place where you can feel history, but it’s also a place where you can experience the vibrancy and energy of modern Italian life. Away from the wonders of the Pantheon you can dine al-fresco in a city-centre piazza and try some fine Italian wine before heading to one of the city’s many designer bars. One day can be spent delving into the past, the next taken up with café-lounging and pasta-eating. Do as the Roman’s do, follow the lead of the city and live life to the full.
