 POPULAR ROME HOTELS

Italy’s capital city is, arguably, the most visited in the world. For many, Rome is first and foremost the political centre of the nation, for others it is primarily home to the Pope. All agree upon the importance of Rome in the development western civilisation.

Once the capital of the Roman Empire, the most powerful of the ancient western world, Rome has retained its impressive cultural, historical, and artistic importance and is still, centuries later, an important protagonist on the world scene. Here, every piazza, street, and alleyway records the history of Rome’s glorious past, which is, needless to say, only a part of the city’s charm. Ideally, Rome should also be experienced via the old quarters of Testaccio and Trastevere, where to savour the warmth of the people and the authentic soul of the “eternal city”.

Because Rome has existed for nearly 3,000 many yet carries everything weight in history having a dolce vita lightness of heart. This can be a city where classical ruins and early Christian church buildings stand alongside – or lie beneath – Renaissance palazzos and Baroque fountains. You will find also great neighbourhood trattorias, cool shops along with a buzzing aperitivo scene. And since Rome is really a city that mixes the closeness and human scale of the village using the cultural draws of the European metropolis.

In Rome, classical ruins and early Christian church buildings stand alongside – or lie beneath – Renaissance palazzos and Baroque fountains. But you will find also great neighbourhood trattorias, cool shops along with a buzzing aperitivo scene. Its mild Mediterranean weather conditions are another persuasive draw for site visitors in the awesome north, however for me the primary draw will be the pulsing energy of the place which lives existence as a kind of theatre.
