Rome

Rome is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, where ancient treasures and modern day wonders exist side by side. Strolling through the streets of Rome, you can’t help but stumble across something spectacular.

You can find a museum, gallery or monument commemorating every era. Starting with Rome’s neighbourhoods is certainly easier than trying to tick off an alphabetical list. You might stroll the Via Nazionale (making mental notes for later shopping trips), but before you know it you will have staggered upon numerous Roman antiquities between the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and the Colosseum. You will easily lose a day amidst the Vatican City, gazing at the flamboyantly dressed Swiss Guards and marvelling at the work of Renaissance greats. So whether you stroll or sit on a city break, you mustn’t rush the mellow feeling when Rome winds down. Leave time to watch the passeggiata – the early evening stroll of handsomely clad citizens – over a glass of Prosecco.
