WELCOME TO ROME

welcometorome



Rome is like a moveable feast of endless courses. No matter how much you gorge yourself on its splendours, you rarely feel you’ve made it past the antipasti. From the remains of its imperial glory days to the Renaissance and baroque riches of its historic centre, the Eternal City is a living masterpiece.

With its awe-inspiring architecture and art collection, the Vatican City is also an essential stop. Declared an independent state in 1929, it’s home to St Peter’s Basilica (said to be the largest church in Christendom), the Vatican Museum and the shining star of the Italian Renaissance - the Sistine Chapel.

Beyond the seat of Catholicism, there are the Spanish Steps, Pantheon, and Piazza Venezia, which can all be found in the historical city centre. With so many jewels of ancient Rome found on almost every corner, visitors are transported back to bygone days of chariots and gladiators.

Things to see

Passes:
The Rome tourist board offers the Roma Pass (www.romapass.it), which includes free access to the first two museums and/or archaeological sites, and discounts thereafter, plus free travel on public transport. It's valid for 48 hours or three days. Buy it from any tourist information point, participating museum or site.

  • Basilica di San Pietro (St Peter's Basilica)
St Peter's Basilica lies above a shrine said to mark the burial ground of the saint. Inside is Michelangelo's Pietà and Arnolfo da Cambio's bronze statue of St Peter, which is famed for its foot being worn to a nub by pilgrims' kisses.
  • Cappella Sistina & Musei Vaticani (Sistine Chapel & Vatican Museums)
A glimpse of Michelangelo's depiction of The Creation is worth the queues. Built as a private chapel for the popes, Pope Julius II commissioned the precocious artist to paint the ceiling frescoes and work was completed in October 1512. Highlights of the vast museum include Raphael's Rooms, the Etruscan Museum, and the Pio-Clementino Museum with classical masterpieces Laocoön and the Apollo Belvedere.
  • Colosseo (Colosseum)
Emperor Vespasian began this giant amphitheatre in AD72 and his son Titus completed it eight years later. On opening, Titus staged a run of games that lasted 100 days, during which 5,000 animals were slaughtered. Explore the massive amphitheatre and the skeletal remains of underground chambers where gladiators and beasts were held.
  • Piazza di Spagna and the Spanish Steps
Piazza di Spagna is little changed from the 18th century and is still dominated by the elegant sweeping staircase known as the Spanish Steps. Designed in 1723-26 by Francesco de Sanctis to link Via del Babuino with Via Felice, the steps lead to the 16th-century Trinità dei Monti. From here, spectacular views over Rome’s rooftops more than warrant the steep climb.

Shopping in Rome:
Italy’s has a well-deserved reputation for quality and nowhere more so than in Rome’s shops, studios and specialist boutiques. Major brands are well represented but it’s the bespoke leather goods, clothes, accessories and food that present the best value for money.

Key areas:
Via Condotti is where all the big-name designers have their shops. For smaller, independent boutiques try Via del Boschetto, Via del Pellegrino and Via dei Governo Vecchio. For mainstream labels and chains, focus your energies on Via del Corso. Luxury goods to take home include assorted vinegar, truffles and olive oil. Castroni, Via Cola di Rienzo 196, sells plenty of Italy's regional culinary riches.

Markets:
Rome’s largest flea market is the vast Porta Portese in Trastevere (Sunday 0700-1300) and is the place to pick up antique knick-knacks for a good price. The oldest and most famous food market is the Campo dei’Fiori (Monday to Saturday 0800-1300) for anything from fresh produce and fish to beautiful flowers.

Shopping centres:
The oldest shopping mall in Rome is the Cinecittàdue Centro Commerciale, Viale Palmiro Togliatti 2. They have everything an eager shopper could want, from perfume shops to children’s toy stores. TAD, Via Babuino 155A, is a small conceptual department store that will answer your every niche style need from high-tech gadgets to high-end fashion.

Souvenirs:
Roman souvenirs range far and wide; stop in any local shop and peruse the local leather goods, from handbags to boots, or pick up a hand-carved rosary at the Vatican. The liqueur limoncello is a tasty reminder of the trip.

information:
Value-added tax (IVA) of 22% is added to every purchase in Italy. If you are a non-EU resident and spend more than €155 on a single item then you can claim a refund when you leave the country. Only available from shops displaying a ‘tax free’ sign.
