ROME, ITALY. Rome, Italy’s capital, is an amazing city that, if given the opportunity, everyone should visit at some point. It’s a place where you can explore, enjoy and admire the beautiful Italian ancient and modern buildings, monuments and, of course, people!
There are many ways to get to Rome. You can travel by plane, bus, or train, depending on where you come from. One of the cheapest ways you can get to Rome is by catching a flight via companies such as Easyjet, Ryanair, or Wizzair. Or if you are willing to spend a little bit more money in return for more comfort and services, you can book a flight with Italiair or any other airline.
Rome is a popular destination that many people visit, especially because of the temptation to go and explore a beautiful city combined with hot weather, great food, cultural monuments, and warm, romantic people.
Once you start the journey, you should be prepared to see famous buildings and museums all over the city. There is hardly any street without something interesting on it. Your first visit to the city centre should lead you to one of the most famous monuments of Roma, the Colosseum. Built by the greatest Roman architects and engineers, it is now the largest amphitheatre in the world. Historians estimate that between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators used to fill the stadium to view gladiator events, animal hunts, executions of humans, and reenactments of battles and dramas. However, the use of the Colosseum stopped in the early mediaeval ages, but it later served many other functions, such as housing and religious space.
In the 21st Century, the Colosseum continues to be an iconic symbol of Rome. It is one of Rome’s most popular tourist attractions and has close connections with the Roman Catholic Church. The Coliseum remains a very popular destination for tourists, and it was recently listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
The second famous destination in Rome is St. Peter’s Basilica, which is located in Vatican City, the home of the Pope which is surrounded by the city of Rome. There is no entry fee to the Basilica, but there are many prices for other attractions in the Vatican. Here you can see the world’s largest church and a very important location for Christianity. The Basilica hosts some very important history — note the ancient walls and columns around the church
Your next stop should be the Roman Forum, which has previously been the centre of activities and the political heart of Rome. It has now become a collection of ruins where you can see remains of ancient Rome.
Another interesting place to visit is Victor Emmanuel’s monument, which is a large white marble monument constructed in honour of Italy’s Victor Emmanuel II. Victor Emmanuel II serves as a symbol for a united Italy, as he was the first king of a united Italy.
Rome is a beautiful city where pretty much everything could be a tourist attraction. What differentiates it from other popular cities though is that you could feel the love in the air. Even if you go for a short walk or you just want to try some famous Italian pizza or ice cream — or why not both? — you are sure to meet wonderful people who make you feel friendly and happy. People are willing to help as well, so there is no way you could lose yourself as long as you are not shy to ask around. One of the most romantic and beautiful monuments in the city is the beautiful Trevi Fountain (Fountain di Trevi), which was designed by Nicola Salvi and finished by Giuseppe Pannini in 1762. The fountain is connected with many ancient myths one of them which says that if you throw a coin in and wish for something, your wish will come true and one day you will return to Rome. Walking around and looking at all the beautiful architecture fills you with an amazing feeling of beauty and romance.
In terms of shopping and hotel booking, I recommend you look for hotels a bit further than the centre. Not only are they only fifteen minutes away from the actual centre but they also offer better views, peace, and quiet. For shoppers, all of Rome is surrounded by famous designers and there are famous brand shops all over the city centre. It’s not a secret that Italy is famous for its design and fashion, so one could consider it a heaven for shopaholics.
A visit to Rome is not only a cultural visit, but it will leave you with the impression and spirit of romance, which you will hopefully carry back to your home town.
