Just a short stroll and you are at the Colosseum - the most imposing monument in ancient Rome - built by the Emperors of the Flavian dynasty. The Roman Forum between Palatine Hill and Capitoline Hill - at this end of the spectrum you will find the centre piece of the city - Piazza Venezi - home of the Palazzio Venezia built for Pope Paul II, the monument of Victor Emanuel and the Mausoleum - Altare Della Patria. Four main roads converge on to this square and so you choose your direction and explore........
From the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Baths of Caracalla to Bocca Della Verita - you are on a path of symbolism and truths. Mystical, magical and historical - mender the ancient cobbled streets to discover more monuments, museums, castles, ruins and palazzis. Pay homage to Vatican City and walk through the Borghese Gardens.
Shop in a choice of three main commercial centres or head for the exclusive streets of Via Veneto and Trastevere - designer labels, fine fashions and glitzy jewellery.
Take time for a leisurely lunch in one of the many restaurants or cafe bars and do a bit of people watching - fascinating.
Treat yourself to the best ice cream over at Giolitti - there are around 70 flavours to choose from!
Festivals, parades, flowers, dance, music, arts, crafts, Easter, Christmas and life are all celebrated with a vibrancy and colour that will delight you.
