Home / Italy/ Rome
Rome brings history to life, as no book ever could.

There is Classical Roman and early Christian; Romanesque and Renaissance; Rococo and Baroque; the Vatican State, in all its splendour; a juxtaposition of one era with another; the marriage of ancient and modern; the contrast of empire and religion.

Easily negotiable on foot, there are prestigious art galleries and museums; the Spanish Steps stretching gloriously up towards an evening sky; the Trevi Fountain lit up and romantic; the incredible Piazza Navona or the monumental Pantheon; all almost always busy and lively.


Rome is romantic and chic, the epitome of glamour, and that very special type of Italian style. The Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, The Colosseum - no visit to Italy's capital city is complete, without a visit to the very heart of Ancient Rome.

Tourists flock to these sites, so you will never be alone, but that often makes it easier to imagine the hustle and bustle, which must have been very much part of life in Rome's heyday. The Forum covers about five acres and was the important centre of Ancient Rome, with government buildings, temples, markets and so on - a general meeting place for its citizens. History will spring to life with familiar names, such as the Tomb of Romulus, the Temple of Castor and Pollux, the House of the Vestal Virgins and many others.
