Start your trip now!
[revised November 2021] In time of Covid-19 we learnt some times you cannot travel and have just to wait and dream. But this is not necessarily a lost time. Have you ever heard of the “Grand Tour”? It was a “travel habit” of the bygone days, just reserved to upper classes (and mostly male travellers), […]
Eating in Rome
[revised August 2022] 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 […]
Sleeping in Rome
[revised December 2021] 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 […]
How to visit Colosseum’s underground
[revised August 2022] 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 called the “belvedere” (currently under restoration). Unfortunately the people interested in this kind of visit are more numerous than the available slots and the way these tickets are […]
All you need to know about Vatican tours
[revised August 2022] 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 already know that, right?) There is a lot to know about […]
How to reach Rome from Civitavecchia Port
[revised December 2021] Some of our visitors are here on a cruise (or before/after a cruise) and need infos on how to reach the city from the harbour of Rome which is not “around the corner” (approx 1,5 hr away from the city centre). Instead of creating a new blogpost, we are happy to share […]
Skip-the-line tickets: what you need to know
[revised August 2022] 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 Vatican if you do not have the “skip the line” reservations (for the Colosseum it is mandatory). What you need to know is: non only […]
Rome à la carte
[revised December 2021] 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 […]
The perfect Roman holiday!
[revised December 2021] We love to give suggestions to our guests and when they ask “how long should we stay in Rome?” it is 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, on my days off. The list is […]
Rome on own
[revised December 2021] 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 […]
