About Rome
Rome is a city that seems to exist simultaneously in the past and the present, with a history so vibrant you can feel it resonating just beneath the steps of the picturesque piazzas. From the towering walls of the Colosseum to the somber magnificence of the Vatican Museums, this is a city of endless wonders. Book a Rome apartment rental to settle in and enjoy your visit the Italian way, taking it one leisurely day at a time.
Things to Do in Rome
Rome's locals know how to practice il dolce far niente, or the sweet art of idleness, and this is one of the best ways for a visitor to take in the city as well. The capital of Italy has so many highlights that you can easily lose yourself in a blur of rushing from the Forum to the Byzantine to the Pantheon. If you try to pack too much in, however, you'll miss out on the city's quieter charms, such as the soothing trickle of thousands of fountains or a quiet stroll along the largely deserted banks of the majestic Tiber River. Rome has enough highlights to keep a visitor busy for years. Research your options before you visit if you want to seek out specific experiences. Some popular options include browsing the Baroque art at the Museo di Roma, strolling the Piazza Navona, and climbing to the top of Castel Sant'Angelo to take in views of Vatican City.
Getting around Rome
The best way to explore Rome is on your own two feet. The city is extremely walkable, and many highlights are only accessible by foot. Best of all, this approach will give you the opportunity to stumble across charming pizzerias and quiet piazzas you might miss otherwise. The Metro has two lines, intersecting at the bustling Termini. Buses and trams are available as well but are generally much slower.
Shopping in Rome
Rome has a few major shopping neighborhoods where you can find popular stores clustered together. Piazza di Spagna is a mecca of Italian designer brands, including Prada, Gucci, Versace, and Dolce & Gabbana. If you're looking for fine foods, head to Via Cola di Rienzo where you can pick up black sepia pasta at Castroni and local parmigiana at Franchi. Take these finds back to your Rome apartment rental for a homemade feast in the heart of Italy.
Dining in Rome
Eating in Rome is an experience that should be enjoyed at your leisure. Plan several hours for each meal, and research your picks carefully, so you're not drawn into an overpriced tourist trap. Quality picks include the fried meatballs at Mordi e Vai, potato gnocchi from L'arcangelo, and porchetta at Er Buchetto. Don't miss the Roman pizza, as well. With its thin crust and flavorful marinara, it's a far cry from American favorites. Try Da Remo in Testaccio and Al Marmi in Trastevere for some of the best slices in the city.
