A Roman Holiday

Roman View from the top of the Spanish Steps
Ancient and modern, timeless and current - all cohabit in the central capital of Italy, Rome. 

Beginning our ascent up the Spanish Steps
Whether drawn here by its history and heritage, its art and architecture, its views and vistas, its food and fashion – Rome will seduce you. 

A visit to Rome is a step into the world’s grandest open air museum.

The Eternal City - Rome is one of the oldest continuously occupied cities in Europe. 

Some of the many obelisks Rome harbours.
The Column of Marcus Aurelius
Rome and the Romans have ruled and dominated as empire, kingdom, and republic for over 2,500 years.

Rome is one of the most visited countries – ranking top three in the European Union and top 20 in the world. 

The Pantheon
Rome is a global city – its historic center is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Rome houses the seat of the Papacy at Vatican and is the capital of the Papal States since the Eight Century. We will cover the Vatican in a separate blog. 

Side streets and some peace away from the crowd.
Entrance to the public library.
Cradle of Civilization, architectural and urban leader since the Middle Ages, major Renaissance center, birthplace of Baroque – Rome currently and consistently remains a world class artistic and cultural leader. 

Ancient aqueducts provide potable water in Rome to this day.
Coins for our fountain wishes.
All who troop to Rome love to throw coins into Trevi Fountain, climb the Spanish Steps or enjoy a latte in the Piazza del Populo.

Game night crowds gather at the piazza.
Rome is one of world's most photogenic cities – whether you are here to sightsee, work, party or laze indolently – it’s guaranteed to be a grand Roman Holiday!
