Rome Sightseeing

Do yourself a favour, and visit Rome. Although many travellers tout their encouragement to get beyond Italy’s capital city, you simply can’t pass up an opportunity to visit one of the world’s most important cities. The entire Roman Empire was built around Rome, and history practically seeps from the streets. Whether you’re taking in the Coliseum or eating everything in sight, a Rome sightseeing tour is sure to bring you the best of the best.

Starting out in Rome, start with the obvious: the Coliseum. Your best bet is to hire a guide to learn all the fascinating history behind what this venue was used for (hint: it’s really cool). You’ll practically feel like you’re back in the thick of the crowds, listening to them roar as warriors strut their stuff. Visit the Imperial Palaces and the ancient city centre, as well as historical Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum. A guide will help you avoid all the crowds on your Rome sightseeing tour.

Ready to appreciate some art? In Rome, you’ll be awed by Michelangelo, Raphael, Caravaggio, Rubens, Bramante, Carracci, Bernini, Galli…and so many more! And believe it or not, you don’t even have to step into an art gallery – you can find all these artists in churches scattered around Rome.  Visit the S. Maria dell’Anima, S. Maria Della Pace, and S. Agostino for just a few offerings. If you’re a Raffaello aficionado, Villa Farnesina in the heart of Trastevere is the place to go. See his works, and learn about the history of this stunning villa.

From Rome, visiting The Vatican is a must-do. See the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, and stroll through Saint Peter’s Square and Basilica. Visit Alexander VI’s remains in the Santa Maria di Monserrato Church. For a different angle, learn about how the Borgias lived their corrupt life under the patriarch Rodrigo Borgia or Pope Alexander VI. Learn about The Vatican’s modern history as well – even if you’re not a religious person, you will find this tour fascinating.

Rome Sightseeing Continued...

Another fascinating experience: embark on a Rome underground tour. This city has thousands of years of history, and much of it is found in the stratigraphic archaeology when structures have been built upon the remains of the buildings that came before them. This layering helps you to travel through time as you descend into the earth. Visit the Roman houses of Caelian Hill and the Basilica of San Clemente. The Roman houses were found under the church of Saint John and Saint Paul, discovered in 1887. The basilica was built in the 12th century, on a medieval church. Even further below you’ll find a Roman house and a Mithraic temple.  Rome has some incredible history and the best way to discover it all is with a trusted guide.
