What to See?
Rome celebrates divinity and everywhere you turn, you will find monuments and churches that are beautiful odes to faith. The Sistine Chapel, with awe-inspiring frescoes by famous painters, has always captured people’s curiosity. St. Peter’s Basilica, another name synonymous with Rome, also lies inside the Vatican City State. Find rare manuscripts, books, prints, drawings, coins and medals at the Vatican Library. And do not miss the beautiful interior at the Jesuit Church, Chiesa del Gesù. The Imperial Forums are really just ruins, but they are rich in archeological value. Also admire the Torlonia family’s splendid collection of paintings, period furniture, and sculpture at Musei di Villa Torlonia. In a city that has a rich imperial past, Rome Cavalieri, a part of the Waldorf Astoria group of hotels, is all set to treat you like a king. Each of the 121 rooms at Hotel Eden has a different style, proof of the level of luxury and pampering you can expect. At the newly renovated Hotel Londra & Cargill, all rooms are soundproof and service is excellent. If you want a room with a view, find the Vatican outside your window at 21 Art Hotel and the Roman Forums and Palatine Hills views at the Kolbe Hotel. The Centre of Rome B&B is a charming B&B, located at a very popular site buzzing with shops and restaurants.

Rome’s zoo, Bioparco, is a good way to keep kids busy. Explore the architecturally magnificent villas and the surrounding landscaped gardens at Villa Borghese and Villa d’Estate. Dig up the past at the Catacomb di San Callisto, where you will find tombs of nine popes buried in the Crypt. Shudder shudder! For something more breezy and easy, putt around the golf greens at Le Querce and Marco Simone. Visit major sites without sweat or stress.110 Open Bus Rome Tour run by Trambus makes Rome city touring fun and easy. Enjoy a hot, warm or cold soak, a massage or beauty treatments at the chic Acqua Madre Hammam. And while in Rome do as the Romans do: learn to be a gladiator at the Gruppo Storico Romano. Or learn to cook Italian from the Italians at the Città del Gusto. If you have time, look around the Castel Sant’Angelo with its Renaissance interiors and the beautiful frescoes of Sala Paolina. After a heavy dose of Caravaggios and Michaelangelos, try the light delight of oriental art at the Museo Nazionale d’Arte Orientale. Da Giggetto serves mouthwatering fried things of the Roman-Jewish kind. At Gusto, enjoy the view from the terrace, all the while tucking into pizzas and good Italian food. Hostaria Costanza stays stubbornly Italian and you’ll be thankful, because very few can cook traditional Italian like they do. La Buca di Ripetta fills you with great Roman cuisine without emptying your wallet. Enjoy pizzas and cuisine from the Lazio region at Roma Sparita. And finally, head for a happy ending at Cavalletti with its homemade pastries and chocolates. Enoteca is what Italians calls a wine bar. Antica Enoteca has an excellent choice of wines and great food to go with it. Beer fans can hit Finnegan’s Irish Pub. Guinness, Kilkenny, pool, Premier League matches on wide screen TVs…yes, it’s Irish alright. The Drunken Ship is a true-blue American bar with never-ending drinks, and themed events. Boho-chic is what best describes The Library, where rums, cognac, international liqueurs, and Cuban cigars mix for a fun night. You could also sip some of the best cocktails in town at Harry’s Bar.
Where to Go?
The sartorially finicky can breathe easy at Davide Cenci, a store that sells only top brands in clothes and accessories. With free-flowing cuts in vibrant colors and luxuriant materials, expect to be excited at Etro. Also check out Borsalino when you’re out shopping. This is where hats stop being functional accessories and become an expression of your personality. And if you think gloves are a thing of the past-ish, then you must step into the Sermoneta Gloves store. The rainbow hued gloves will ensure you do not leave empty-handed, so to speak. The very chic weTad Store is like an art gallery with a quirky collection of everything from exotic plants and flowers, clothes, accessories, and home décor items. Planning a feast? Pick the best Italian gastronomic products at Castroni. The Teatro dell’Opera features operas, ballets, and orchestral concerts. For a taste of divine music, try and catch a concert by the Sistine Chapel Choir. Fonclea is a bit American in its spirit. Lend your ears to live blues, jazz, soft rock and roll performances. The Place too has live music ranging from rock, jazz, blues, pop, and more. Gilda gets it right with party-goers. The disco churns out the latest hits that have everyone on the dance floor. Hostario dell’Orso is yet another popular disco, but it has a dress code, so make the effort people. Forget taxis, buy a Roma Pass. You can use it on buses, the metro (train), and all other public transportation. A three day pass costs around 20 euro and gives you free entrance into chosen tourist sites, and at reduced prices at others. Not bad, eh?
