Rome, the Eternal City, is so full of history, art, grand avenues and secret ancient corners, that a visitor can never tire of its undoubted attractions. For the first time visitor, the great monuments of civilisation; the Vatican City and St Peters, the mighty Colloseum and the elegant Spanish Steps which take the breath away and are one of the World’s most evocative places for evening gatherings. Yet for those returning there are always new experiences to be had, cocktails in the 18th century gardens of the Hotel de Russie, a room overlooking the Roman Forum, a private visit to the Vatican or to visit the bowels of the Colloseum. Visit the Forum and ancient Rome on a Sunday, when the surrounding streets are closed to traffic and it’s easy to stroll between the great monument and the surrounding parks. Dine around the city in small, welcoming trattorias dotted along the Via del Corso and around the Trevi fountain, some offering great value and quality. Easily combined with cities around Italy, the resorts of the south or with a short flight to the islands, Rome is always worth a visit for a weekend or more.
