Eating in Rome

Posted on Dec 13, 2019 in Foodies & Shopaholics, On your own, Planning Support

There is such a wide choice of places and options to eat in Rome: street food? A gelato? A fancy restaurant with a view? A traditional trattoria? A wine-bar for fine tastings? Midnight cornetto?)… It’s impossible to list them all… We are “out there” everyday and we constantly ask for feedbacks from our guests (and […]

Sleeping in Rome

Posted on Dec 12, 2019 in On your own, Planning Support

There are thousands of different options for your accommodation in Rome and it is quite impossible to have a full updated list of all the hotels, B&Bs, hostels, religious institutions, campings, apartments… we simply recommend caution in the choice of location, especially if you are visiting Rome for the first time: lodgings’ websites are often “deliberately […]

How to visit Colosseum’s underground

Posted on Dec 11, 2019 in On your own, Planning Support

In the last years, the visit of the Colosseum has been enriched of new areas, i.e. the underground layer, the arena, the third tier and the “belvedere”. Unfortunately the people interested in this kind of visit are more numerous than the available slots and the way these tickets are put on sale is not exactly […]

All you need to know about Vatican tours

Posted on Dec 10, 2019 in Planning Support

A tour at the Vatican is probably the first line in your “to do list” for a trip to Rome (which is ironical, in fact, as the Vatican is not in Rome, neither in Italy… It’s a foreign country! But you know that, right?) There is a lot to know about Vatican tours, as this […]

Skip-the-line tickets: what you need to know

Posted on Sep 4, 2018 in Planning Support

Everybody is well aware by now the most famous tourist attractions need pre-booking in order to avoid long lines. And we will not even consider touring the Colosseum or the Vatican with you without “skip the line” reservations. What you need to know is: non only Colosseum and Vatican need pre-booking: Borghese Gallery is only […]

Rome à la carte

Posted on Oct 12, 2017 in Planning Support

Planning a trip is not easy: you always want to make the most of your time, you feel compelled to cover some “must sees” and you do not have time to dedicate to the planning because… well, generally you have a job, a family and some errands everyday…. That’s why we are here for you! We […]

The perfect Roman holiday!

Posted on Jan 30, 2017 in Arts and History, Planning Support

We love to give suggestions to our guests and when they ask “how long should we stay in Rome?” it is a bit embarrassing to reply what the proverb says,  “…a lifetime is not enough!”  I still have my list of not-yet-seen-spots which I’m planning to visit soon, during my days off. The list is in […]

Rome on own

Posted on Feb 1, 2016 in On your own, Planning Support

We believe the guidance of a local expert will make a big difference in your Roman Holiday, of course! But we also believe  you need your *own* time to explore the city, to wander and wonder, to feel lost and find your way…. Moreover, there are some sites where you will have an internal guide […]
