Destination Guide: Rome
Immortalised on the silver screen, Rome is every bit as exciting, clamorous, historic and romantic as you would imagine. There are iconic monuments and roman ruins at every turn, and the energy of the locals embody the very essence of Italian spirit.
The Coliseum, Trevi Fountain, St Peter’s and the Vatican – where do you start with Rome’s many attractions? Yet Rome is much more than a beautiful ancient capital city full of famous buildings. It is pulsing with life and is at the centre of modern Italian politics and culture.
The fashionable cafes and restaurants of the Trastevere district are a great place to experience Rome’s vibrant nightlife and indulge in the timeless art of people-watching. Why not visit the opera, or co-incide your visit with the annual wine festival or the Rome Independent Film Festival (both in March).
Rome offers so much that it is impossible to take it all in. From the chic boutiques to the fascinating museums, the guided city tours to the art galleries, there is something for everyone. Just beyond the city centre are green and shady districts such as Monteverde, overlooking the metropolis.
Rome’s main international airport is Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino.
Best places to eat and drink in Rome
Sitting at a pavement table with a refreshing drink, watching the world go by is a very popular pastime in Rome. There are endless little cafes, trattorias and bars on the many beautiful piazzas and side streets of the city where you can soak up the Roman atmosphere.
Head to the Centro Storico, and the chic districts of Trastevere and Testaccio for trendy bars such as Anima, or Freni e Frizioni. Italian pasta, pizzas and hearty regional dishes can be found everywhere, but some of the best classic Italian restaurants to try are Fortunato al Pantheon or Roma Sparita.
For a truly glamorous night out, Rome has several big ticket Michelin-starred restaurants, many of which are clustered around the top of the exclusive Via Veneto. These include the modernist style Open Colonna, the Imago with its fabulous views, and the intimate Il Pagliaccio.
Best time to visit Rome
Rome gets fairly warm during the Summer months, June to August, whilst the cooler and quieter times are November and February. Daytime temperatures average around 30 degrees C in July and August, and rarely go below freezing in the winter.
