Is Rome beckoning you to visit? Even if you’ve already wound your way through the Eternal City’s bustling streets, sampled its world-famous flavours or queued hours in order to catch a glimpse of Apollo and Daphne, there is always good enough reason to visit Rome much more than just once. This must-see destination has many faces, 4 of which you can discover below. We’re giving you the opportunity to revisit this incredible urban playground but approaching it from a different perspective. Here are 4 different holidays for Rome.

Cultural getaway

In the mood to broaden your mind? One of the main reasons that Rome has managed to establish its notoriety is due to the sheer volume of historical elements that lace every nook and cranny. It the favourite destination for history, art and architecture lovers all over the world, and regarded as someone what of an open-air museum, where you’ll find a centuries old story everywhere you look.


Even the classics of the Eternal City can surprise in right light; the Roman Colosseum together with the Platino and the Roman Forum never cease to amaze. The proximity of these ‘ruins’ is somewhat unbelievable and within a few steps, you’ll have walked through hundreds of thousands of unknown stories. But it’s not just the big hits that should be wrestling for your attention, step off the beaten path and let the city reveal all manner of fantastic sights, sounds and smells.

Of course, you can’t miss the Vatican City, with its Vatican museums, Saint Peter’s Basilica and, of course, the masterpiece that is the Sistine Chapel. It could almost be too much for some to handle! Do you want more? Write this down: the Pantheon, the Trajan Market, the National Gallery of Modern Art and the Borghese Galleries… among so many other extraordinary places!


Romantic getaway

Have you ever dreamt of what it would be like to step into the classic film, Roman Holiday? We all fell in love with the Oscar-winning movie starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. This movie is the perfect example of how to explore Rome when love is the reason for your visit.


Walking along the banks of the Tiber River, having an aperitivo accompanied by a refreshing Spritz on the romantic Trastevere terraces (even in winter as they set up stoves to keep you warm!), and taking pictures of all the lovely scenarios that the city (and the movie) cast out before us.  Rome is full of magic places, charming cafés and restaurants, delightful spaces…

For the ultimate experience, what about exploring the city together on a Vespa? Of course, it’s practically expected that any couple will toss a coin into the Fontana di Trevi or taking a stroll through the Villa Borghese. What romantic corners of Rome to you love most? Let us know.


Gastronomic getaway

Organising a trip to please the palate? Going to Italy means delighting in its plates of pasta, pizza, fishes, cheeses and desserts…, and even more so if you decide to make it a gastronomic trip. Italian food is one of the most beloved in the world and it’s famous for its variety, the quality of its tasty products, and also because of being rich in nutrients.


Rome boasts a lot of popular Italian recipes and some of the best restaurants in the country. It’s true that there are also many touristic places, but even they can turn out to be really good ones.

Feel like trying a real carbonara, typical from the area? Not cream but eggs and not bacon but guanciale. It’s delicious! Don’t miss out some perfectly prepared penne all’arrabbiata, suppli (rice and cheese balls) or some traditional meat dishes or a pizza with bresaola… a personal favourite of ours. They are all so good! And, for dessert, gelato of course! 


Business trip

Embarking on a business trip to Rome is probably one of the best destinations that work can take you. Why? Well, because Rome never fails to leave an impression, even if you don’t have time to truly delve into the city, but simply going from the airport to venue will give you a feeling for it. Because of the richness of the city, even if you don’t have time to visit the main attractions, you’ll be able to admire its streets and monuments from wherever you may be.


If you need to buy something for a special event, just walk to Via del Corso and find whatever you need. You may also have to arrange a business lunch with colleagues, or just a coffee break, and you’ll be lucky to have so many options to choose from around the city that you’ll be spoiled for choice . Thinking about it, you’ll forget you went there for work!


So, what kind of getaway will you be taking? And depending on what you’ll be getting up to one of our 5 hotels will be able to help you?
