Rome Flights Guide
Not only is Rome the capital city of the stunning country of Italy, it’s also the powerhouse of industry, finance, fashion, high-technology and communications in the region. With a population estimate of 2.7 million residents, Rome is the largest city in country and home to literally hundreds of museums, art galleries, iconic landmarks, world-class cuisine and some of the best shopping in the world.
Just a few of Rome’s well-known attractions include the imposing, ancient Colosseum, the more modern National Gallery of Modern Art (which houses works by artists like Cezanne and Morandi), St. Peter’s Basillica (which not only has breathtaking architecture, but even art by Bernini and stunning sculptures like La Pieta di Michaelangelo), the Pantheon (almost as famous as the iconic Colosseum, the Pantheon was commissioned as a temple to the gods of ancient Rome and rebuilt in 126 AD by Emperor Hadrian), and though not as famous as the others, plan a tour of Aventine Hill; this scenic and historic walking area of Rome has some of the best views in the city.
Of course, you just cannot visit Rome without sampling its world-class and delicious cuisine; just a few of the city’s most revered and popular restaurants include Vivendo, which was voted by the Zagat Survey 2010 as the “Top Food” and “Top Service” restaurant in the city; plus, make a reservation at Ristorante Ad Hoc Roma, located in the heart of Rome and features an exquisite wine cellar and tasting menu.
As for shopping in Rome, there are many different venues to choose from, such as the Via Del Governo Vecchio district, full of secondhand shops where you can find great bargains on name-brand clothes and jewelry; there is also the Via Condotti and Via Borgognona, both of which cater to the wealthy and are located at the base of the “Spanish Steps” (and very close to many of Rome’s hotels). Via Del Babuino is home to Alberto di Castro, a famous Italian store, plus many other upscale shops.
Transportation in Rome includes a large railway station, a 2-line metro system, buses, trams, an urban train network and the Rome-Fiumicino Airport, the 8th busiest in Europe.
