Rome is known as ‘the eternal city’ and if you visit it you will realize why. A lifetime of memories will stay with you forever, and you’ll always think fondly of your time in this exquisitely ancient and yet exciting and trendy city. Arriving in Rome can be overwhelming because there is so much to see and Italian traffic can be hard to navigate. As a result, arranging a private tour in Rome is highly recommended so that you can make the most of your time there. Also, when you are experiencing centuries of history, it’s always extremely helpful to have a knowledgeable guide on hand who will be able to make ancient ruins come to life. Who doesn’t want to experience exactly what it must have been like to wander down the Via Appia or to sit inside the Colosseum and witness the incredible drama of chariot races and gladiators fighting to the death? It’s only when you’ve visited Rome that you will realize how much of its culture has spread to the rest of the world.

What to do and see when in Rome

Apart from the ancient buildings from the Roman Empire, this is also where the center of the Catholic Church can be found. Although the Vatican is situated right in the center of Rome, it is considered a separate country, and is actually the smallest country in the world. If you are being conducted on a private tour in Rome, your guide may well know when the Pope will be addressing the crowds assembled in St. Peter’s Square, and this could be something that you would be lucky to witness.

Then there is the wealth of exquisite art that Italy is so famous for, including the magnificent Sistine Chapel and other Michelangelo masterpieces. One of the most beautiful works of art can be found at the Trevi Fountain. This is an area that buzzes with tourists both day and night and there are endless restaurants where you can sit out on a splendid summer’s evening and absorb the excitement of being in this glorious city. Legend says that throwing a coin into the fountain will ensure a much desired return trip to this city of love.

A feast for the eyes and the palate

Is there anyone in the world who doesn’t love Italian food? Pizza and pasta dishes are famous around the world, but this is just a small part of a variety of exquisite food that can be found in Rome. Just sitting in in an authentic restaurant, absorbing the sights and sounds of a bustling and stylish populace passing by, will thrill any gourmand before you’ve taken a bite of your outstanding meal. There are private tours in the city that focus just on food and wine, and Italian ice cream, or gelato, is world famous. If you are on a guided tour, you can have a professional sommelier who will ensure that you visit the best places and experience the famous wines in the most relaxed and pleasant way.
