How to see, stay and make the most of your Roman adventure?

The Trevi Fountain, Rome, Italy, in the morning light

The eternal city, all roads lead to Rome, so much history, and so much take take in, you truly will need more than one visit to get under the skin of this incredible city, be prepared to put some comfortable shoes on as you will walk further than you ever though possible, in mid summer the heat can be brutal and the crowds will be ten deep at certain big landmarks. Take your time and do not rush, enjoy the laidback Italian culture, soak up the atmosphere, as they say ‘ when in Rome, do as the romans do’.


Where to stay?

Rome has a incredible selection of budget hotels to the really high end luxury 5 star establishments, there truly is a place for all budgets, the hotel i have personally stayed at and would recommend are as follows

What to see?

The main attractions need no introduction, they attract tens of millions of visitors each year and if you only have 3 or 4 days, my best advice is to focus on the must-sees and leave the others for another trip, as trust me you will be back again!


The Colosseum, the famous image of Rome that everyone comes to see, whilst crumbling in places, not helped by the millions of tourists that visit each year, it still is a truly stunning place to visit, they run tours during the evening in the Summer period – I recommend taking a private tour of the Colosseum with – they truly do have the best tour guides to help you get most out of your trip to Rome, they also offer tickets for multiple attractions to save money, the underground tour at night of Colosseum is truly something special.
