For a taste of Roman pleasures
Exploring Rome on foot is the best way to discover the capital's small streets, squares, shopping streets, cafés and restaurants, for the full experience of the Roman atmosphere.
Shopaholics can stroll down the Via del Corso to the Piazza di Spagna, right in the chic city centre of the capital. You can linger on café terraces, relax in Roman parks such as the Villa Borghese, stroll along the banks of the Tiber, or melt into the crowd on Saint Peter's Square.
If you fancy an evening out, try the bars of Trastevere or the clubs of Testaccio. And if you want to stay out all night, don't forget to go to Art Café, in the heart of the Villa Borghese gallery, a club and restaurant known as one of the best discos in Rome!
Must-sees for your stay in Rome
The Sistine Chapel: both historical and religious, certainly one of the most famous sites in Europe, it contains many Italian Renaissance masterpieces, the best-known being Michelangelo's fresco.
The Roman Forum: the centre of Roman public life in the eighth century BC, the forum was originally a swamp between the Capitoline Hill and the Palatine Hill. It contains monuments dedicated to political, religious and commercial life.
The Coliseum: an amphitheatre designed for gladiator fights in ancient times. A beautiful and surprisingly well preserved site!
The Trevi Fountain: the largest fountain in Rome! According to tradition, you should throw two coins into the fountain: the first to make a wish, and the second to ensure you come back to Rome.
The Villa Borghese: once the countryside residence of Cardinal Scipione Borghese, this superb villa is now a museum, bursting with magnificent artwork. Its architecture will leave you speechless, and it is nestled in a garden every bit as beautiful as the greatest parks.
Saint Peter's Square: designed in 1656 by Bernini to allow as many people as possible to see the Pope during benedictions, this elliptical space is surrounded by columns, which according to the traditional interpretation, are in the shape of two welcoming arms.
The Pantheon: on the Campus Martius, between the Piazza Navona and the Trevi Fountain, this religious building from the 1st century BC is composed of a large open gallery, supported by 16 granite columns. The interior is breathtaking!
Castel Sant'Angelo: a pretty little Italian gem right in the heart of Rome, just next to the Vatican.
Trastevere: one of the capital's most pleasant areas! This charming, slightly bohemian neighbourhood is a harmonious blend of modern places like bars or trendy shops, mediaeval houses and traditional brasseries. Don't miss San Cosmiato, a real Italian market which takes place every morning, on the square of the same name.
The Vatican Museums: the exceptional set of museums in the tiny Vatican state includes the Sistine Chapel, the Raphael Rooms, the Pio Cristiano Museum, the Pinacoteca, the Borgia Apartment, the Gregoriano museums and more...
