Project Description

Rome

The eternal city is a vibrant cosmopolis, with more than 2,500 year-old history. The challenge is deciding what not to do: there are so many churches, archaeological sites, piazzas and paintings to see, that a lifetime is hardly enough.

Archaeological remains from ancient Rome, art-stuffed churches and the treasures of Vatican City will attract your attention, but Rome is also a wonderful place to practice the Italian-perfected il dolce far niente, the sweet art of idleness.

When in Rome, be prepared to step into the world’s biggest open air museum. Visit the Pantheon, the Colosseum, the Vatican and the Basilica di San Pedro, the Musei Capitolini, the magnificent Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and toss a coin for your wishes in Fontana di Trevi. Order a pizza or a pasta al dente, and finish it off with an Italian espresso.

Best Time to visit

The city has a typical Mediterranean climate, hot summers and mild winters. During summer the city is packed with high hotel prices. Christmas and Easter are also very busy periods, with many tourists visiting the Vatican City and hotel prices are high. Spring and autumn are the best periods to visit, with moderate hotel prices and less tourists, but the weather can be an obstacle with lots of rainy days. However you will be able to enjoy the streets and local attractions, experiencing the city to the maximum.

Budget Hotels Areas

The city is expensive throughout the year, with the city centre being extremely pricey for budget travellers. Choosing a hotel in the suburbs can save you money, but bear in mind that rooms in most hotel categories are relatively small. The Roman Metro and Bus lines system is fantastic and a €6 day pass is an excellent bargain, allowing you to move freely all around the city. Another good choice for budget is the area near Colosseum, also known as Ancient Rome.
