Boundless emotion

Rome is more than a city and a destination: it is a whirlwind of emotion feeding our imagination.

The endless sequence of stunning backdrops will leave you breathless, filling your eyes wherever they lay. Rome boasts over two thousand years’ history. It was the world’s first great modern metropolis. Capital and hub of empire and civilisation, it housed the core of all the Western artistic and cultural heritage.

With such an array of marvels, UNESCO has awarded the title of World Heritage Site not to a single monument, square or palace, rather to the entire historic centre of Rome. This proves that classifying, discerning, or isolating the beauty of the city is just impossible. Every street, every corner and every neighbourhood have its history and its significance within that history.

If you are thinking about what to do in Rome, you have come in the right place! The city offers a wide range of varied experiences. You cannot leave without revelling in the historical monuments such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the Roman Forum. Plus, discover the museums, contemporary art galleries, parks, gardens, and countless other gems.


Rome is antiquity, contemporaneity and tradition, an incredible mix of millenary monuments, historic districts, contemporary buildings and museums.
The Foro Romano, the Colosseo and the Palatino Hill with the Circo Massimo and the Terme di Caracalla create an immense archaeological park that astonishes with the capability to tell the story of tarditions and habits of those who lived there 2,000 years ago.
Strolling through the historic center - with its “sanpietrini”, churches, squares and fountains - is all an explosion of Baroque art and architecture: from the dazzling Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Navona, to the Churches of Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza, San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane or San Luigi dei Francesi (just to mention some of them), to the greatest masterpieces of Bernini, Canova and Caravaggio hosted inside the Galleria Borghese, Palazzo Corsini or Palazzo Barberini.
In addition to the majesty of Piazza San Pietro and Musei Vaticani, there is also the secret Rome of Villa Farnesina and Palazzo Altemps, the authentic Rome of Trastevere, Testaccio or Garbatella, and the futuristic and visionary Rome of the contemporary districts, EUR, Flaminio and Villaggio Olimpico.
At every corner an endless scenario, leaving an inexhaustible thirst for emotion and knowledge.

Historic Gardens and Natural Reserves

Rome's natural heritage is immense and for this reason the city has been elected “Europe's greenest city”: from the suburbs to the historic centre, there are 85,000 hectares of greenery, divided between protected natural reserves, urban parks, historic villas and gardens.
The historic villas - from Villa Pamphilii (the largest one), Villa Borghese and Villa Ada to the smaller villas - were originally born as country estates of noble Roman families and today, besides being the green lung of the city, are a condensation of vegetation, blindingly green lawns, flowers and wild animals: for exemple Villa Aldobrandini, the small hanging garden in the historic centre, or Villa Sciarra, one of the most interesting parks in terms of landscape.
Don't miss a visit to the Roseto Comunale or to the Orto Botanico during the blooming season, and also to the Parco degli Acquedotti, the crossroads of the ancient Roman water network; in addition wort to be visited are also the Riserva Naturale dell’Insughereta, the Valle dell’Aniene, the Parco Naturale di Veio and many other green spaces... endless possibilities to experience Rome en plein air, on foot or by bicycle, in autumn or spring, discovering botanical rarities and evocative panoramas.

Leisure Time

What to do in your free time?
The cultural offer and entertainment in Rome doesn’t end with guided tours of the city or museums. Rome is much, much more.
For lovers of good food, the Eternal City is a destination of excellence: wine, cheese and typical food tastings, show cooking, food tours or cooking classes are the opportunity to discover the aromas and flavours of tradition, while a tour of the district markets (Mercato Testaccio, Mercato Trionfale, Antico Mercato degli Ebrei and many others) is the most real and authentic experience to discover the tastes, habits and lifestyle of today’s romans.
Following in the footsteps of Audrey (Hepburn) and Gregory (Peck), boarding a Vespa, you can discover the most frivolous and spectacular Rome, wandering through the narrow alleys of the Ghetto and the historic centre or looking out from the viewpoints of the Pincio and Gianicolo.
Sailing a boat, you can navigate the Tevere rivere from north to south, going through Palazzo di Giustizia, Castel Sant'Angelo and Isola Tiberina, exploring the most hidden corners of the river and the city.


Rome has a lively nightlife and offers plenty of opportunities to have fun in a different way each time.
The Teatro dell'Opera is an institution and offers a year-round programming for ballet and opera fans (in summer, watching Turandot at the Terme di Caracalla is a truly exceptional experience).
The most suggestive stage for classical and symphonic music concerts is the Auditorium Parco della Musica, which in July also propose a calendar of refined and contemporary concerts. The bigger stages have always been the Stadio Olimpico and Capannelle, recently joined by the Circo Massimo: meeting points and venues destined to host concerts and events of international importance.
For the most romantic souls, a night-time walking is a must in Monti and Trastevere, breathing the authentic air and spirit of the Ancient Rome, or in Lungotevere with the scenery of the river and the illuminated quays.
But nightlife in Rome is also aperitifs in the city's “young” neighbourhoods: San Lorenzo, Pigneto and Città Giardino are placed on the podium for the number of bars, pubs and restaurants where to stop for a drink or a meal, just as Ostiense and Garbatella have acquired over time a personal identity and they have become the city's trendiest and liveliest areas, with murals, contemporary art galleries, cultural centres and jazz clubs.


Rome, the heart of Made in Italy and craftsmanship excellence.
For fans of luxury shopping, or for those in search of a more authentic shopping experience, boutiques and artisanal shops are scattered throughout the city, starting from the historic centre. Piazza di Spagna, via dei Condotti and the surrounding streets have always been home to the big, iconic brands that have made Italian fashion great all over the world: from Fendi to Valentino, from Bulgari to Gucci, from Armani to Prada. On via del Corso, instead, the historic Galleria Alberto Sordi, with its refined Art Nouveau architecture, is an evocative place and a natural showcase for Italian and international brands, just as the Rinascente recently opened on Via del Tritone, that hosts corners dedicated to design, luxury brands and artisanal perfumery.
In addition to this, in Prati, a few steps away from the Vatican Museums, the shopping that satisfies people’s different tastes is on via Cola di Rienzo and around Piazza Cavour. For those in search of historic shops and small craft boutique, the cult addresses are all in the Ghetto Ebraico area, in via Giulia and in Trastevere: here it is not difficult to find spaces dedicated to leather goods, artisan perfumery and hats, glasses, paper and pens. Last but not least, Testaccio and Ostiense are the cult districts for vintage and creative boutiques dedicated to design, home furnishing and jewellery.
