All About Rome
Rome is one of the world’s oldest capitals and is often referred to as the “Eternal City” because ancient Romans believed that regardless of how many empires came and went, Rome would endure as a great city forever. Today, Rome is truly eclectic, boasting some of the most important ancient ruins, alongside some of the most famous monuments on the planet, while maintaining its status as a modern progressive European city at the forefront of food and fashion.
You are never too far away from a church in Rome, with over 900 of them, big and small, scattered around the city. The most famous of which is St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican City. And if you enjoy throwing your coins into a fountain and making a wish, there are almost 300 to choose from, with the Trevi Fountain collecting nearly 5,000 Australian dollars a day, which thankfully goes to worthy charities. Legend says if you throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain, you are guaranteed to return to Rome one day.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Rome
Springtime in Rome offers warm pleasant days and mild evenings, perfect to enjoy eating and drinking alfresco style in the countless piazzas around the city. Spring also sees the city come to life with many festivals and events to mark the new season, including the much-anticipated annual Easter celebrations. The city is also in full bloom with the beautiful azaleas on the Spanish Steps a true highlight. If you enjoy theatre, Rome's autumn festival of theatre, opera, and dance takes place from mid-September through to mid-November, with events staged all over town. And while the weather can get a little cooler at that time, you are still likely to enjoy some pleasant sunny days. For all things accommodation, there are many holiday apartments in Rome in the city centre and surrounding areas.
Top things to do in Rome
Visit the Underground Passages of the Colosseum
The Colosseum is an ancient wonder of the world and is typically considered a must for any Rome visit, but if you want to take your experience to the next level, visit the Hypogeum and see the inner workings of the famous landmark. Experience the series of tunnels and passages, where the gladiators and animals would have waited before they took the stage for battle.
Campo de Fiori
Campo de Fiori, a medieval square in Rome’s historic centre, features a bustling market that attracts locals from near and far. By day, you can indulge in local Italian produce and food, and get lost in the numerous market stalls. By night, join the locals who gather to enjoy the plentiful food and drink options at the square’s many bars and restaurants.
Head to the Piazza Navona and experience the fountains, statues, and outdoor restaurants that makes this one of Rome’s most vibrant meeting places. Every day the piazza comes to life with street artists, music, and performers. Take your seat at one of the many eateries and enjoy a coffee or a vino while you take in the performances.
