Is There Anything Better than a Roman Holiday?
I mean what have the Romans ever done for us? Apart from the aqueducts? Well, they have indeed provided one of Europe's most famous 'monument' cities. Rome is a history student's dream; but it's also the perfect place for shorts breaks or romantic breaks in Europe.
Rome is (one of) the city of love. With the Coliseum, Trevi Fountain and the ability to zoom around the city on a scooter. With the marvellous parks everywhere, the Vatican Museums, the Catacombs and more, Rome is overrun with visual treasures the like of nowhere else. Together it gives all the other weekend breaks in Europe a run for their money.
A visit to Rome is an exercise in cramming in as much as possible - because you simply can't see and do all the things you really should in Rome! The best idea is to map out your wish list and then make choices based on geography. So for example, see St Peter's Basilica and St Peter's Square in the morning and spend the afternoon in the Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel.
Spend the next day exploring the Coliseum, the Roman Forum and the various temples that make up the area. Rest awhile in any plaza then spend some money in a gellateria. Is there a finer way to spend a day? No, we thought not.
