They say that all roads lead to Rome. Even if this is a bit of an exaggeration, Rome is definitely a city worth visiting. Why? Here are the top reasons.
- Touch the history.
Rome is home to an incredible number of attractions considered to be part of the World Cultural Heritage. Even if you don’t want to visit the Colosseum and St. Peter’s Basilica, you will find something to admire. Almost every building in the center of Rome is a historical monument.
- Visit the smallest state in the world.
Go to the Vatican. Are there many countries where you can go on foot? The Vatican has a huge population density and a high concentration of attractions. And if you’re lucky, you can even get the blessing of the Pope himself.
- Enjoy Italian cuisine.
Despite the fact that it is a capital and a tourist center, food prices in Rome are quite affordable. Only in Rome, you can taste real Italian cuisine and dishes prepared according to true old recipes.
- Go for some fantastic shopping.
For many centuries Rome has been and still is one of the capitals of fashion. The boutiques of the most famous brands are located here. The best time to visit Rome is during the sales season. You can buy chic clothes, shoes, and accessories and get the best prices.
- Visit non-tourist places.
Depart from the traditional tourist route and visit, for example, the Rione of Trastevere, one of the most colorful districts in Rome. Narrow cobbled streets, old medieval churches, houses entwined with ivy and grapes, cozy tables of street cafes… It seems that time slows down here. Romans love Trastevere and come here to have a good and hearty meal or just for a walk.
All roads lead to Rome … Perhaps yours does it too?
