Accommodations for your vacation in Rome
Delicious food in every corner
There’s a good reason why delicious, flavorful Italian cuisine is popular all over the world. In Rome, pasta figures prominently on restaurant menus. Enjoy the many ways it is served, whether you’re a vegetarian or a meat lover. Try alesso di bollito, a simmered beef stew dish or cacio e pepe, a simple yet delectable preparation of pasta, black pepper, and pecorino Romano cheese.
Rome is also known for its pizza a taglio, pizzas that are baked in rectangular trays and served in square or rectangular shapes by weight. Other signature dishes of Rome include porchetta, a slow-roasted pig, and suppli, delicious rice croquettes. For your sweet tooth, head to a gelateria, which can be found in every cranny in Rome. Sample Italian gelato in many flavors, from standard to quirky. Don't forget to try the cornetto, which is similar to a croissant and the maritozzi, a bun filled with whipped cream.
Delve into Roman art and culture
The Eternal City of Rome is replete with fascinating museums and galleries. However, one that you should not skip is the Museo e Galleria Borghese. It is a special place because you’ll find so many pieces of artwork and history in one space. Enjoy the museum walk that will take you from the Roman period to the Golden Age. Admire the works of Caravaggio, Bernini, Canova, and Titian, to name a few.
After the museum, head to the Colosseum, where you can marvel at the enduring grandeur of this well-preserved Roman arena. Check out the cavea and the podium where spectators were seated according to their positions in society. Don’t miss a great photo op at dusk when the Colosseum is bathed in a lovely light. Climb to Oppio Hill located above the Colosseo Metro station, for gorgeous views of the imposing Colosseum.
Rome with children
Children are adored in Italy so it is not a problem for your little ones to tag along whether you’re in a restaurant or a museum. Apart from pointing to them where the lions lived in the amphitheater, your kids can also learn to become a gladiator. Enrol them for a two-hour "Gladiator School" class that begins with a visit to the Gruppo Storico Romano where they can look at artifacts and try on gladiator costumes. There is also an all-day program for older kids who want to get a gladiator diploma.
Otherwise, the Teatrino de Pulcinella al Gianicolo is great entertainment for young children with its captivating puppet shows. Eat ice cream at the bottom of the Spanish Steps, ride a bicycle with your kids around the city, or explore the spooky catacombs of St. Callisto for lots of fun; there’s always something for children to do in Rome.
The bustling nightlife of Rome
After the sun sets, a different form of life begins in the city's bars and restaurants. Many bars are located in Centro Storico, where you'll get a wide selection of delectable wines and liqueurs like grappa.
Check out the jazz clubs on Via Giuseppe Giulietti and Viale di Porta Ardeatina where you can eat, listen to jazz, and even watch a theater production. For dancing, head to the local neighborhood of Testaccio, known as the hub of Rome's nightlife. After dancing the night away, get your energy boost at the many pizzerias and osterias in the vicinity.
Popular day trips around the vicinity
With so much to see and do in Rome, you might find it hard leave it and explore other places. However, there is plenty to discover outside of the city.

If a seaside excursion doesn't appeal, drive to the World Heritage Sites in Tivoli, just 26mi. away. Admire the Mannerist frescoes and ornate fountains that adorn the landscape. For the adventurous, it is also possible to see the ancient wonders of Naples and Pompeii in a day. Catch the train or drive to Pompeii, 150mi. away from Rome.
