It’s so easy to fall in love with Rome, the fabled Eternal City. No other city has been the focal point of the world for such a long period of time and few have such a long and turbulent history as has Roma. Lavished with architectural jewellery from republican to imperial to early-Christian to medieval to renaissance to baroque to modern times by history’s greatest artists. Rome has also experienced sieges and raids that left their scars; but each time the Eternal City recovered from her injuries in glorious form.
Be certain not to miss the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, Piazza del Popolo, the Pantheon, the Colosseum and the Forum Romanum. Be sure to visit a few of her world-famous churches, such as San Giovanni in Laterano and Sta. Maria Maggiore; and the Vatican, which features the incredibly huge St. Peter’s Basilica. Shop along its magnificent streets, eat absolutely wonderful Italian meals and always leave room for gelato, the Italian ice-cream.
Rome’s mild climate makes it visit-able year-round; however, spring and autumn are without doubt the best times to visit, with generally sunny skies and mild temperatures. July and August are unpleasantly hot. From December to February there is briskly cold weather, although it’s rarely grey and gloomy.
