A Guide To Rome

Mummy says….Rome is one of the most magnificent cities in the entire world, and this beautiful and ancient city has some of the most fascinating attractions. I have a great guide to Rome, a must read if you are thinking of going.

A Guide To Rome

I want to share with you why I love Rome and my guide to visiting one of the best cities on the planet.

Getting there

Rome, like many major European cities, is very well connected and getting there is a breeze. There are a number of bus and train connections for Europeans and a busy international airport (one of the busiest in Europe in terms of the number of passengers on a yearly basis). From here you can easily take an airport transfer in Rome to make sure that you don’t waste any time getting to the city.

What to eat

I LOVE everything Italian – especially the food and drink! There is nothing better than starting the day with a nice breakfast and the Italians do it extremely well. I would highly recommend a speciality coffee (something the Italians are world famous for) and a pastry, my personal favourite is a brioche filled with chocolate. When it comes to a snack you can head to a local bakery and try the “pizza bianca”, which translates to white pizza and is a perfect lunchtime snack.

Now comes the real stuff! For lunch or dinner I would highly recommend a very traditional carbonara, (My favourite) which we all know and love, but did you know it was Roman? A nice Roman style pizza is also amazing with its super thin and crispy crust that looks and tastes very different to a Neapolitan pizza that we all think of immediately when it comes to pizza.

What to see

Rome has countless attractions that you absolutely must see and it is a stunning city to just wander around. This is because you can quite literally wander into ancient ruins in any part of the city. Here are some of my most favourite things to do in all of Rome (but there are probably hundreds more):

● Colosseum – This is the ultimate icon of the Roman Empire and the home of gladiatorial matches that we all see depicted in movies and television today. The Colosseum is absolutely huge and features some fascinating architecture.

● Vatican City – This is technically its own city state that is surrounded by Rome and the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church. This amazing place is also home to the world famous St Peters Basilica, as well as Michelangelo’s masterpiece: the Sistine Chapel.

● The Forum – This was the former marketplace of ancient Rome and was probably the most important place for Roman people because it was the venue for public speeches and announcements, criminal trials and much more. The forum is located near the most important buildings in the city too, which means that it was an important place for the Romans and somewhere you must visit too!

I hope you find a guide to Rome useful – have you ever visited?

  5. I thought the Colosseum was amazing, unfortunately, Rome is one of the busiest cities in the World which does take a bit of the shine off it. Great guide though !
