Rome is one of the world's most photographed cities due to its glorious monumentality: The Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, St Peter's Square, the Colosseum... The hub of ancient empire is also one of Europe's big cities, a romantic place for honey-moon, favorite holiday destination, and the city of art and fashion.
Rome is the capital of Italy and the country's largest and most populated city. he Historic Center of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With wonderful palaces, millenium-old churches and basilicas, grand romantic ruins, opulent monuments, ornate statues and graceful fountains, Rome has an immensely rich historical heritage and cosmopolitan atmosphere, making it one of Europe's and the world's most visited, famous, influential and beautiful capitals.
Today, Rome has a growing nightlife scene and is also seen as a shopping heaven, being regarded as one of the fashion capitals of the world (some of Italy's oldest jewellery and clothing establishments were founded in the city). With so many sights and things to do, Rome can truly be classified a "global city".
Once you arrive they spot you as new. Bags and day packs are stolen in a flash so... Watch It! Even if you think you're savvy you still need to look out. They're very organised in distracting people. They cut straps and through the bottom of bags. Wear your pack on your front; place handbag clasps on the inside by your body; spread your money around various pockets and pouches. The polizia are not generally friendly or helpful.
if you want to visit the Vatican Museums (incl. Sixt. Chapel) you should plan in advance and make booking for this visit - else you may have to wait hours for entrance and ticket buying in a long row - maybe ending up with no time left for the visit at that day
Best place to eat Est Est Est!!! An authentic wonderful family owned pizza joint.
Simples e pode ser passado por ele, apenas como "olha, eu vi"
A Beautiful but very chaotic city. Try wondering the streets and explore the city on foot. I've found some of the smaller streets have awesome and cheap food, and makes you feel more like a local instead of a tourist. Finally BEWARE of your belongings and watch out for pick pockets. Petty theft is a huge problem in Rome so expect it.
