The city is, of course, famous for its thousands of years of
history and has so much to offer that it is hard to know where to
begin. From the sublime Pantheon, built by the emperor Hadrian, to
the bustle of the food market at Campo de' Fiori, a luxury holiday
in Rome bristles with memorable sights.
Walk back in time through the Forum of ancient Rome to the
Colosseum, witness the staggering opulence of St. Peter's Basilica,
or take a twilight passeggiata or stroll in the Pincio Gardens
above the Piazza del Populo for a spectacular view over the city.
Everyone from Caesar Augustus to Michelangelo and Mussolini has
left their mark on this extraordinary city.
From the evocative Appian Way, where Spartacus' men were
crucified, to Bernini's fountains and Fellini's film La Dolce Vita,
Rome is a phenomenal concentration of history, legend and artistic
masterpieces. And of course the Italian capital has wonderful
restaurants to sustain you in your sight-seeing. Relax in one of
the many trattorias or pizzerias of the Trastevere district, or
enjoy an aperitif at one of Rome's legendary cafés and watch the
world go by. Surely you need no more persuasion to visit Rome on
your next luxury holiday!
