All About Rome
A moonlit walk along the Tiber across from the dramatic Castel Sant’Angelo with its imposing rounded walls sets the scene for a memorable stay in the Italian capital. In Rome, cutting-edge fashion blends seamlessly with ancient monuments and breathtaking carved marble. From frescos and facades to vine-covered courtyard eateries with communal benches for lively conversation, history has a real presence here. Whether you’re exploring extensive ruins at The Forum, people-watching in Piazza di Spagna, or marvelling at Renaissance art at the Vatican Museums, the Eternal City has what it takes to keep you wowed.
Its historic centre alone boasts world-famous sculptures, gilded church mosaics, and centuries of rich history at every turn. Fashionistas can spend a morning browsing the chic boutiques on the glamorous Via del Corso. After sampling a simple plate of creamy Cacio e Pepe at a traditional osteria, grab a cone of gelato and climb one of the seven hills to make the most of the Italian sunset.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Rome
Summer in Rome brings heat that could be a challenge for some visitors, so the cooler temperatures in April and May and late September to November may be a more attractive choice. Be aware that many apartments in Rome don’t have air conditioning. Spring is a favoured time for repeat travellers, with crisp mornings, flowers in bud, and the potential for alfresco dinners. Late October is marked by the city’s film festival, so look out for the many famous faces also taking in the sights. You’ll want to consider a waterproof jacket and sturdy footwear for Rome’s wettest month, November, when wet cobbled streets should be treated with caution.
Top things to do in Rome
Across the river from most of the city’s more famous sights, Trastevere offers an insight into times gone by. Stroll under zigzags of drying laundry and watch the neighbourhood’s elder statesmen meet in the piazza for morning catch-ups. Trailing vines and shutter-adorned buildings in shades of rust and apricot are nestled along winding streets, while lesser-known frescoes and gilded mosaics are waiting to be discovered.
Pincio Hill Gardens
Whether you’re looking for an active start to the day or a sunset viewpoint to remember, these grand balcony gardens boast a dreamy vista of the city below. Be prepared for a climb — sandals probably aren’t the best choice for this — but the panoramic view spanning Piazza del Popolo and St. Peter’s Basilica is your hard-earned reward.
For over half a century, Pastificio Cerere in the San Lorenzo neighbourhood on central Rome’s eastern edge fed locals across the city. The former pasta and flour factory was repurposed as an art space in the 1970s, providing a creative outlet for artists and photographers as well as galleries for the public.
