Rome

With 3,000 years of history Rome truly is the ‘Eternal City’. Many of the wonders of this city are not in the museums but in the streets, and in fact the entire historical centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

From the magnificent Roman monuments such as the Colosseum and the Pantheon, with its amazing domed roof still perfectly intact, to ‘la dolce vita’ of the swish Via Veneto, Rome has so much to fascinate the visitor. There are many marvels: the outstanding works of art accumulated by popes, wealthy patrons of the finest artists in Europe; the treasures of the Vatican and the Sistine chapel by Michelangelo – few cities make the past such an enjoyable experience read more....

Food & Drink

Rome

Roman dishes, like much of Italian cuisine, is based on simple ingredients, both vegetable and animal and all sorts of offal traditionally form part of the Roman diet. Trippa alla romana is a famous dish with tripe flavoured with mint and an abundant sprinkling of pecorino cheese. Saltimbocca alla romana is a very tasty dish of sliced veal with ham and sage cooked in butter and white wine.

Many of the best known pasta dishes are Roman in origin, such as spaghetti carbonara, with egg and bacon and bucatini all'amatriciana with pork cheek, tomato and pecorino cheese.

Rome may not have its own famous typical dessert as other towns and cities do, but it does have over 600 pasticcerie or cake shops! There are also many amazing ice cream parlours or gelaterie serving a dizzying array of flavours.
