The great capital of modern Italy needs no introduction. The historic city offers a wide range of ancient monuments, buildings and iconic sites going back to Roman Empire times. On top of that you can't beat the Italian food, coffee and sunny weather. There are plenty of things to see and try. Our top sites are listed below:
Roman Forum Ruins:: It's a massive archaeological site first erected 500 BC by Julius Caesar. Today you can see remaining elements of marble fragments, triumphal arches and temple ruins from various time periods. We recommend researching before you visit or get a guide when strolling through the site.
Colosseum: We all know about the famous Colosseum, the most iconic symbols of Rome and the Rome Empire. The famous building once held games, gladiator fights and other entertainment for citizens of Rome. Today it still stands proudly attracting over 4 million visitors every year. The site is jam-packed so buy your ticket in advance and be prepared for queues at the entrance.
Vatican: It's the smallest country in the world and home for the Pope. Take time exploring a massing palace full of ancient paintings, sculptures and history. You will be amazed by its charm and feel of ancient times. Don't' forget to visit St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel to admire the best of Michelangelo's work
Rome (FCO) airport is located around 32km from the city centre. It takes anything between 30 min to 1 hour to get to the city centre. There are many choices available to you:
Taxi & Uber: This is the fastest way to get to town but there is a risk of getting stuck in rush hour traffic. The fare is around €48. Uber also operates at the airport and it is slightly cheaper.
Trains: This is an easy and fast way of getting to the city centre. It costs €8 and takes around 30 minutes. The trains run every 15 minutes.
Bus: Buses are a bit messy. There is no direct connection between the airport and the city centre. For those who land in Rome for the first time, we recommend staying away from this option. If you do decide to use the bus beware of pickpockets both on the bus and around the bus stations.
