With silky smooth gelato, freshly brewed espresso, exquisite food and super-trendy folk on each and every corner, Italy is a wonderful place to be. Steeped in history, grandeur and culture, its capital city is unsurprisingly a tourist hotspot! With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 4 things that you absolutely must do whilst in Rome!
- Dress like a Roman – OK, so we’re not talking about a long flowing man-dress, teamed with metallic headgear, funky footwear and a shield, but rather some of the best modern fashion that Italy has to offer! The street ‘Via Condotti’ boasts some of Italy’s top designers, whilst the shopping mall, Galleria Alberto Sordi, packs a wide range of choice for the discerning modern fashionista!
- Jump in a time machine – No trip to Rome would be complete without visiting the Colosseum! Inaugurated in 80 A.D with 100 days of games, the Colosseum is not only the home of numerous incredible stories of bravery and marvel, but it also happens to be the largest amphitheatre built during the reign of the Roman Empire. Definitely a ‘must-visit’!
- Take a tour of Vatican City – Although it’s technically a city in its own right, you’d be hard pressed to visit Vatican City without ever stepping foot in Rome! Home to the Pope and some of Italy’s most amazing architecture, a day spent in Vatican City will certainly be one to remember!
- Indulge your senses with gelato! Italy is famous for its ice cream, and with good reason! Available in all manner of flavours and colours, a scoop or two (or three) is a great way to keep cool in the summer sun.
But that’s not all, this wonderful city has a whole lot more to offer, so why not go and explore it for yourself!
