Experience Rome: what to do, what to see

Rome is famous for many things including architecture, monumental landmarks and food. It can be over-stimulating at first; there's a lot to soak in! The city itself has remained incredibly intact over time, changing very little which excites and intrigues visitors spending their holidays in Rome.

Essentials in Rome

Vatican: The Vatican Museums are essential to any visit to Rome. It's impossible to see it all, so choose which sites you want to see the most, and start out early.

Pantheon: Perhaps the most remarkable building in the entire city, the Pantheon is a 2000-year-old temple that is striking in every way: scale, architecture, symmetry...

Colosseum & the Forum: If re-living Rome's glory days through its ruins suits your fancy, then head to these two sites. The Colosseum has seen brutal battles between gladiators and wild beasts, spurred on by the cheers of the rich and the poor.

Mouth of Truth: Legend has it that if you stick your hand inside this 4th century sewer-cover and tell a lie, it will actually bite it off. We dare you to try it!

Accommodations in Rome

When it comes to hotels in Rome there are a few things to keep in mind. You’ll find a fine selection of luxury hotels, bed & breakfast-style lodgings and chic boutique guesthouses but there are plenty of budget options as well. Search for a pension, something family-run rather than a chain hotel, stay at a monastery or rent an apartment for a week. If you have a Rome car hire, it's essential to get a hotel with parking.
