Rome has all the spiritual and earthly thing that can impress and delight!
No other hectic metropolis in the world, as Rome has been able to preserve memories and atmosphere from all historical epochs.
A visit to “The Eternal City” is like a journey through the centuries – ancient ruins, impressive buildings from the imperial era, picturesque medieval neighborhoods, magnificent squares with trickling fountains, noble palaces from the Renaissance and grandiose baroque churches, side by side with everyday life in a contemporary metropolis.
“All roads lead to Rome” and thus to the magnificent sights such as Saint Peters Cathedral, the Sistine Chapel”, the Spanish Steps”, Piazza Navona, Piazza del Popolo, the catacombs, the Trevi Fountain, Coliseum, Pantheon and some of the world’s finest museums and galleries, with collections from all eras.
All this will help you to understand why “Rome was not built in one day.”
The Romans love good food and wine!
The world famous Italian cuisine can be experienced day and night. In the morning the house wives and restaurant keepers buy the fresh products in colorful marketplaces, and by noon it seethes in the kitchens of the more than 5000 restaurants in Rome, during the preparation of delicious meals.
Culinary culture can be experienced at exclusive restaurants, simpler trattorias, pizzerias, sidewalk cafes and other characteristic places. Italian design in exquisite shops with clothes, shoes, bags, silk, textiles, ceramics, jewelry and much more, gives the base for any shopper’s earthly paradise!
Via Nazionale, Via Cola di Rienzo and Via del Corso, lined with shops and are associated with side streets in the area around the Spanish Steps, which are the most famous shopping streets.
A visit at the popular and quaint flea market Porta Portese Sunday morning is also an experience that creates an amusing contrast to the city’s many fine shops.
Rome is not only belonging to the Romans. Here we have the foundation of the European’s roots and the start of what we today are proud of calling our Western civilization.
“Rome’s magic” can not be described but must be experienced!
