Rome, Italy

Early fall is the ideal time to visit Rome. Locals return and reclaim the city, bringing a more authentic flavor and energy with them. It encourages a more symbiotic relationship between Romans and travelers.

Rome Door

Rome has so many blockbuster attractions, but it’s worth keeping an eye out for its everyday flourishes. Find yourself captivated by an intricately carved door, a crumbling pastel façade, the mismatching alignment of shutters, a marble signage, and well-worn cobblestones.

Easy transportation

Mopeds have become as iconic as the Colosseum in Rome. You see them everywhere and I really grew to love them while living there, that is if you are not driving and one gets right in front of you from nowhere. Still they are very charming and in a very populated city, very efficient.

Scooters Abound

Arriving in Rome, it becomes quickly apparent that the scooter is the prized mode of transportation. It's quick, easy, and—let's admit it—it can be sexy with the right rider.

ITALY HOTLINE

This summer via Sienna Reid (founder of Italy Hotline) she organized a tour for me and some friends throughout one of the oldest neighbourhoods of Rome – Rione Monti. We visited a Small Luxury Hotel of the World that houses Roman ruins with engravings that date back over 2,000 years ago. We had special access as this stone gallery is not open to the public. We then proceeded to the terrace of the 9-suite hotel, with incredible views of the Colosseum and Roman Forum – once again off limits unless you’re a guest. The evening ended at the the penthouse apartment of Sienna whom is also an artist - so you can imagine the magical and vibrant ambiance. There we had a wine and food tasting by a professional cook and sommelier ... which was was accompanied by candle light, breathtaking views, and an unexpectedly gorgeous sunset. Ive lived in Rome for almost 3 years and had never been exposed to such history and beauty! I highly reccommend reaching out to Sienna so she can create a similar experience for you.

A Wedding in Rome

Outskirts of ROME, Italy -- Wedding guests begged for the kids to come down and kiss the bride for good luck. Really.
When in Rome do as the Romans do. Is this how the old saying goes? I can't remember.

Poetry in Motion

The cars, the motor scooters, the busses...the noise. Should I stay or should I go now? No need to sweat it out on the corner, dipping a toe into the oncoming traffic, only to jump back at the last second. This traffic officer not only understands it, but turns it into poetry.

The Invisible Man; Sighted

We saw a couple of variations on this one while in Rome. Men, or women, put on an oversized suit (think David Byrne in Stop Making Sense) that hides their head inside the shirt and jacket. They attach a floating hat and sunglasses so that it seems as if the invisible man is sitting before you. It was hilarious watching this little boy as the tried to figure out what happened to this guy's head and, more importantly, whether or not he should shake hands. He never did.

Exploring the Jewish Ghetto in Rome

The Jewish Ghetto is an interesting neighborhood to explore by foot when you're in Rome. It dates back to 1555, when Pope Paul IV restricted all Jews to a small area of the city. Now filled with eateries and small shops, the area has a rich culture that is unique to the neighborhood.

Espresso topped with Chocolate

Yes, Rome is an open air museum, pizza is great and there are a few fountains. But all in all, the best thing about Rome is a shot of espresso topped with cream and chocolate shavings. It is true heaven for anyone that remotely likes the flavor of coffee or chocolate. This drink from heaven was imbibed at a gas station somewhere between Rome and Naples. And you don't have to attempt to converse with waiters that could care less if you are there.

Roman Fountains: Take time to enjoy them!

What the wonderful aspects of visiting Rome are the many, many fountains that you can find throughout the city. Take time to just wander about, buy picnic supplies at a deli or market and just plant yourself in front of one and just enjoy!

Watch the Roman skyline transform at sunset

Afternoon summer sun makes almost everything look beautiful, but there is something distinct about watching the Eternal City live out this daily transformation. The hues and tones of every building change and the sounds of bars closing and restaurants setting up their dinner tables outside makes a walk around Rome at that time an experience in itself. For those of us that live in Rome its a good reminder why why Italians always say, "bella Roma" despite all of its ailments.

Rome off the beaten path: Piazzetta Mattei and the Turtles fountain

Rome is such a big and amazing city that it is often too difficult to decide what to visit and where to go.

Of course you need to see St Peter, the Colosseum and many other touristic places but if you have time to see a bit more of Rome and to discover little places a bit off the beaten path you will find out less crowded areas that show the most genuine side of this city that (unfor­tu­nately) is turning every day more into a huge metropolis.

Personally I have a few favourite spots and one of these is Piazzetta Mattei in the Rione San’Angelo.

This tiny and quiet square is located not far from the Marcello theatre at what was one of the 5 entrances of the ancient Jewish ghetto.

Maritozzo con panna and sorchetta romana: two Roman classics!

If you want to experience the ‘real’ Rome, you cannot leave without having tried two of the most delicious, soft and rich food that Rome has offer: ‘maritozzo con panna’ (a creamy brioche) and ‘sorchetta romana’ (impossible to translate!). Maritozzo is a delicious sandwich, sometimes flavored with orange peel or enriched with raisins, and normally cut in half, lengthwise, to be filled with fresh whipped cream.

The second treat you should definitely try while visiting Rome, is the ‘sorchetta romana’. A true classic of the Eternal City, this is a must for any locals especially at night after a bit of dancing!
Don’t ask the meaning of its name…it’s a bit of a vulgar term but in this case it is used with a lot of humor.

Rome: The Center of the World

I live in the New York City area, so I understand why New Yorkers call their home the Capital of the World—but I have to disagree with them. To me, the real center of the world is Rome. In the four times I have visited there, I have seen more stunning artworks (Michelangelo’s Pietà at the Vatican City), more spectacular architecture (the Pantheon), and more ancient history incorporated into daily urban life (Ponte Santangelo) than anywhere else. Although I have already traveled there more times than I have anywhere else, I never feel like I’ve seen enough.—Andrew Tedesco

Time to Rome

Rome’s port, Civitavecchia, is an hour and a half from the city center. Fortunately, Azamara’s Destination Immersion® program emphasizes longer stays and more overnights so the journey into the city won’t stop you from seeing the sights. More time in port means the opportunity to see more of Rome’s famous wonders including the Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel, and the Spanish Steps on the Elite Rome shore excursion. Afterwards, you can dine at a local trattoria and enjoy gelato on a piazza under the stars before you return to your ship. Several Azamara voyages in 2015, 2016, and 2017 start or end in Rome, allowing guests the opportunity to extend their time in the city before or after their voyage.

"Not All Who Wander Are Lost"

A weekend in Roma is never to be turned down; even if you only have 3 days, make every second count.

The best part about Rome is getting lost, literally! I do not think my friends and I would have found the Trevi Fountain otherwise, or the Bocca della Verità, moments before we needed to be heading back to the airport.

My favorite parts about our short weekend were stumbling upon fascinating sculptures and making a wish at the fountain, after a long day of walking all around the streets of Rome and Vatican City. We also ran into Suze Orman along our exciting journey; like the saying goes, "Not all who wander are lost."

My Favourite Five Facts about Rome!

1. Rome's mascot is a she-wolf who cared for the legendary founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus.

2. Rome has a sovereign state located entirely in its city limits, the Vatican City. Vatican is the world's smallest state and ruled by the Pope, the Bishop of Rome.

3. Rome's first university, La Sapienza, is the largest in Europe and the second largest in the world.

4. Around 700,000 euros worth of coins get tossed into the Trevi Fountain each year. This is donated to charities to help the needy.

5. Rome has a museum dedicated entirely to pasta.

Secrets of Rome to see and explore

Rome attracts countless tourists every year, all of them keen on seeing its many attractions. Why not avoid the crowds and try discovering the secret places of Rome? There are many fascinating sights to see and lesser-known attractions to visit.

Vatican Gardens
If you fancy some greenery and a quiet place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Rome then the Vatican Gardens could be just the right spot, though you need to book in advance to visit this private park that, although not open to the public, allows guided tours for limited numbers of people.

The Pyramid of Cestius and the Non-Catholic Cemetery
You do not need to go to Egypt to see pyramids because there is one in Rome. The Pyramid of Cestius, is said to be the tomb of Remus and can be viewed really well from inside the Non-Catholic or Protestant Cemetery, This cemetery, by the way, is of particular interest because it probably houses more graves of famous people than any other cemetery in the world. The poets Shelley and Keats were both buried here.

Church of San Pietro in Montorio
Instead of going to St Peter’s Cathedral, why not visit the Church of San Pietro in Montorio? Dedicated to St Peter, it is said to be built on the very spot where the saint was crucified. The inside of this church is decorated with works by well-known artists from the 16th and 17th centuries. Outside in the courtyard you can find the very beautiful Tempietto Chapel.

You will find a great choice of Venere hotels in Rome to stay at and make your base while you explore the more secret side of the capital of Italy.

Gelato and History: A City Break in Rome

At the beginning of summer, I wanted to indulge in a lazy city break to completely switch off after a busy spring. And I thought that nothing will relax and stimulate my senses like a few days in the Eternal City: Rome. Of course, the town with a 2000-year history, crowded with archeological sites, historic villas, state-of-art cafes, eclectic bars and charming boutiques immediately pulled me out of my lethargy and turned me into the most curious traveler.

On my way from Rome Ciampino airport, I admired the Cypresses and Stone Pines along the way while planning with my small group of friends to have as much sunshine and Italy:Best.Gelato.In.Rome.html">gelato as we can until we leave. After we checked into our minimalist, but exotic B&B apartment and rested half an hour on a fluffy mattress, I gathered my other two fellow travelers as it was aperitivo time when bars offer a variety of snacks and finger food if you buy a spritz.

We wanted to start our vacation in style, so we headed for Antico Caffe Della Pace behind the baroque Piazza Navona. Once arrived here, the display of baroque architecture and paintings of the art fair in the warm late noon light left us breathless. We stopped to admire the fountains of the square: Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers, the Moor Fountain and Fountain of Neptune. Further on, we entered the historic cafe and gazed at its sculptured nymphs and retro cash register while waiting for the very Italian Fragolino, a strawberry-flavored sparkling wine. After enjoying pizzetas, local cheeses and some people-watching( such a bohemian crowd), we strolled to Fontana di Trevi, hoping the mass has dispersed by then and we can have a relaxing moment admiring the place of the famous “La dolce vita” scene between a charming Marcelo Mastroianni and a soft-spoken Anita Ekberg. We made sure to pass by the old-time Gelateria Giolitti, where we instantly forgot the meaning of the term calorie when we saw the impressive selection of flavors. After we threw a coin in Fontana di Trevi, we decided to roam the cobbled busy streets of Centro Storico in search of the Italian nightlife. We tried Shari Vari and Jackie O’ and we found out that Italians love clubbing and also, that the best party places are in other areas of the city: Trastevere and Testaccio.

Tired after our busy night, we started the next day drinking espressos at the Illy Kiosk in Galleria Alberto Sordi. This is one of the best places to shop in Europe and energized after the aromatic coffee shots, we got some geeky souvenirs from the grand bookstore La Feltrinelli. Rest of the day we were bewildered by the beauty of Ancient Rome, strolling through the ruins of the Roman Forum. There are not many signs to indicate where Julius or Augustus had some business, so it’s best to download an app if you want to know exactly what you’re seeing. We ended the day in Trastevere for fried artichokes and homemade gnocchi, to enjoy afterward a cocktail at Freni e Frizioni.

The next day we didn’t have much time to explore before heading to Ostia Antica to spend our last day in Italy by the seaside. So after espresso at the famous Caffè Sant’Eustachio where Italian intellectuals used to meet, we visited the Coliseum and the Pantheon to seize some of their beauty and architectural grandeur.

Standing by the seashore, having some gelato, of course, we planned some more time in Italy in the following months.

Walks of Italy: the underground of Rome through crypts, bones and catacombs

With so much to do in Rome, it's better to focus on taking in the sights of this "eternal city" through a guided tour by Walks of Italy.

This particular tour, especially during the summer time, provides a respite from the searing heat in Rome. Visitors walk through an area mandated by air conditioning to preserve the bones, trail in a line viewing catacombs and go through a tunnel of maze unearthing several layers of churches.

The attractions included in this tour aren't well known but it's a great peek inside the history and culture of Christianity in Rome.

Tour Guide

Linnea hosted an intimate group of five, while training a potential tour guide, throughout the underground secrets of Rome, including bones, catacombs and crypts. The attractions appear as normal buildings from the outside, not screaming out to happenstance tourists.

Well-versed in English, Linnea pokes fun about death at the Capuchin Crypt, knows all the tunnels throughout the Catacombs of Priscilla and shares her fascination with history and art of the Basilica of San Clemente.

Linnea was a wonderful, intelligent, professional and compassionate guide. She was patient with everyone’s questions, stopping at souvenir shops, taking photographs and provided detailed understandable responses, frequently with humor. Our pace was steady as she gently guided us along, ensuring we covered all the important aspects of our tour. Her passion for ancient Roman history, along with her breadth and depth of understanding of this time period were quite impressive.

Uniqueness:

To ensure your prompt arrival, the tour company provides maps and images of the meeting spot. In addition, the tour company present VIP entrances to all attractions, skipping long line of customers to continue the tour without big breaks.

Price Point

Depending on season, currency rates, and availability, this tour starts at $87 per adult.

Highlights:

Catacombs of Santa Priscilla
Earliest Known Depiction of the Virgin Mary
Capuchin Crypt – Decorated with Human Bones
Basilica of San Clemente (NOTE - The tour commences in Piazza Barberini and ends at the church of St. Clement.)

Duration

Three hours and 30 minutes

Fun facts from the tour

The Capuchin Friars belong to a Roman Catholic religious order of brothers and priests, inspired by the ideals of St. Francis.

The Catacombs of Priscilla, managed by the Benedictine order of nuns, possess the niche with the oldest image in existence of the Virgin Mary.

In 1857, Father Joseph Mullooly, the then Prior of San Clemente, began excavations under the present basilica, uncovering in the process not only the original, fourth-century basilica directly underneath, but also at a still lower level, the remains of an earlier, first-century building.
