With glamorous bars and restaurants juxtaposed against 2,500 years of Roman history, Rome offers an incomparable cultural feast. First time visitors will understandably gravitate towards the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and the ancient Roman icons of the Colosseum and Pantheon. However, if you have a little more time, or are on a return visit, you’ll find there's more here than remarkable monuments. See how the other half live on Via Veneto, one of the most famous, elegant and expensive streets of Rome. Or, get up close and personal with the locals in the lively Trastevere neighbourhood.
People watching is a national pastime and never more entertaining than at night, in one of the eternal city's many hot spots. And, don't forget that you’re in a country renowned for its culinary delights, so take time to seek out some of the best its capital has to offer. The Pizzarium may be tiny and unassuming but it serves some of Rome’s best sliced pizza, or get shoulder-to-shoulder in the queue at one of city’s many excellent gelaterias.
