Trip to Italy and where I would like to go and what I would like to see.
Save Place
Riomaggiore SP, Italy
Hiking the Cinque Terre is an extraordinary way to explore the Ligurian Coast. Five villages connected only by hiking trail and rail with breathtaking coastal views and colorfully quaint villages. The trails can be challenging at times and it is...
Save Place
When it comes to ice cream, there is still only one place in Rome. It has been the best since 1900. I love Giolitti not only for the great gelato, but also because it hasn’t changed since I was a little girl. 39/06-699-1243. By Pepi Marchetti...
Save Place
Piazza della Trinità dei Monti, 2, 00187 Roma RM, Italy
Ciampini has all the required three Ps (that's a thing, right?): People-watching, prime piazza location, and perfect cappuccini to make it the most coveted caffè bar in Rome. From 8 a.m. to after dark, Rome's best-dressed flock to Piazza...
Save Place
Vicolo del Bottino, 8, 00187 Roma RM, Italy
I love to go to this restaurant and wine bar for a glass of prosecco and to enjoy the unique view out over the Spanish Steps and the rest of Rome as the sun sets. 39/06-699-341000. By Pepi Marchetti Franchi, as told to Elizabeth Minchilli. This...
Save Place
Via della Penna, 22, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
I tell all my friends to stay here. It’s a great location, right off Piazza del Popolo. The hotel is not part of a chain. It’s family owned, which is charming. 39/06-361-0841. By Pepi Marchetti Franchi, as told to Elizabeth Minchilli. This...
Save Place
Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, 00153 Roma RM, Italy
The Baths of Caracalla, a third century bathing complex located near the Circus Maximus, was the center of social life for tens of thousands of Romans who would gather there—around 10,000 at a time—to exercise, bathe, and relax. Admission was...
Save Place
A vast network of ancient aqueducts converged on the center of Rome to provide water to 1 million residents and their public fountains and baths during the Empire. Today, the ruins of these imperial structures have been transformed into houses,...
Save Place
Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy
My sister has a thing for Bernini sculptures. Planning our trip to Rome she kept bringing up Bernini over and over agin. Ok sis, gotta it! We trekked across the city spotting as many of his Baroque sculptures as possible. Bernini came to Rome as a...
Save Place
Piazza del Popolo, Roma RM, Italy
A stunning piazza with the 3 boulevards of the il Tridente converging at the Obelisk and 2 cathedrals. A more grand example of urbanism you'll be hard put to find, anywhere in the world. From here, shopping (till you drop) and eating like there's...
Save Place
Largo della Salara Vecchia, 5/6, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
The Roman Forum is where ancient Rome began. The sprawling archaeological park gives us just a hint of what the Roman Empire once was—a dominant and diverse society. The Forum itself was the political, social, religious, and commercial focal...
Save Place
Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy
On each visit to Rome, one of the things I enjoy most is taking the time to look up and photograph some of the beautiful tributes to the Virgin Mary.
Save Place
Lungotevere Farnesina, Roma RM, Italy
One of the highlights of Rome was a sunset walk from Trastevere north along the Tiber with the dome of St. Peter's as the backdrop.
Save Place
Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy
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!
Save Place
Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy
ROME -- A visit to the Trevi Fountain, and tossing coins into the water for not only good luck but to make sure you return to Rome will always be a fun highlight to do with kids. We got lost a few times en route because the place is indeed tucked...
Save Place
Via di Porta Castello, 33, 00193 Roma RM, Italy
ROME, Italy -- You can't tell by the photograph above where this caption was taken but it was certainly inside the Colosseum. And I must confess I'm not crazy about the idea of organized trips, but when traveling with kids this option is...
Save Place
Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy
One of course must visit the Colosseum when they are in Rome. I have been here twice and both times the size and structure has amazed me. Rome is also a fantastic city where one can constantly find new interests around every bend.
Save Place
Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy
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...
Save Place
Piazza di Trevi, 00187 Roma RM, Italy
Fontana di Trevi is, as it should be, one of the most visited landmarks in Rome. Seeing it is worth the blind stumble through narrow stone streets and alleyways. But do so at night (and in the rain, if possible) to be rewarded with...
Save Place
Via di San Gregorio, 30, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
Inredible view of the Roman Forum. We can only imagine, what life must of been like when this was a busy area of the city.
