If you are fortunate enough to get to travel to Rome you are all but guaranteed to have a good time. This remarkable city has something to offer everyone. Once you have been to Rome you are very likely to be drawn back there again and again. Rome is a city that can really get under your skin. There are so many different ways to see and experience the city. Here are some of our favourites:
Rome on a Segway
Rome is a big place, so if you want to see all of the sights and have fun at the same time a Segway tour is a great option. There are five different tours to choose from including a night tour, which is probably the most unusual way to experience the city.
Roman ghost and legends tour
Talking of night tours there are several ghost tours to enjoy in Rome. As you would expect, many of these take place at night.
Get under the skin of Rome
Another popular form of tour that is available in Rome is an underground tour. The fact that Rome has been inhabited for thousands of years means that every inch of the city has been put to use including the ground beneath your feet. Below the streets of Rome, there are ancient frescos, catacombs of all denominations. The best way to see these very special places is to take a private tour.
Opera under the stars
Even opera is done a little differently in Rome. Throughout most of the year, the city’s opera companies perform in the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and the Teatro Flaiano. Most summers they mix things up and take the whole show outside. If you are lucky enough to be in the city when this happens, you really must go.
There really is nothing like seeing an opera against the backdrop of a historic venue like the ruins of Terme di Caracalla (ancient Roman baths) or The Church of St. Paul’s within the Walls. To say it is special is definitely an understatement. As you can imagine tickets for these performances sell out almost immediately, but often you can still get them from romeoperatickets.com.
Tour with a local
The Romans are rightly proud of their city, so proud that hundreds of them volunteer as tour guides. There are all kinds of tours available. It does not matter what your interests are there will be a local tour guide that can show you those aspects of Rome.
A bird’s eye view from Palatine Hill
A great way to get a unique view of Rome is to walk up Palatine Hill. On the way up you get to see the Roman Forum. Once you get up onto the hill, you have a remarkable panoramic view of the city. It is great to be up there for the sunset, which also means you will not be trying to climb the hill in the heat of the day.
This only scratches the surface of what Rome has to offer. It does not matter what type of holiday you are looking for you will find it in Rome and the surrounding area.
