There are a number of attractions which are "must-sees" for every tourist. The Colosseum is one of Rome's best known attractions and our Rome Colosseum hotels are ideally located close to the home of ancient Roman entertainment – the Colosseum hosted gladiatorial contests and wild beast hunts for over 450 years. Visit the Castel Sant'Angelo, which was originally built by Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum and later used as a papal refuge. Or prehaps, photograph your favourite Piazza, such as the Piazza del Popolo with its Egyptian obelisk, or the Piazza Navona with its three fountains and Church of Sant'Agnese in Agone.
Another interesting aspect of Rome is the country within a country, otherwise known as Vatican City. Vatican City is the smallest in the world with an estimated population of less than 900 and features some of the Italy’s major attractions including St Peter’s Basilica, Piazza San Pietro, Vatician Musuem, the Papal Palace, the Obelisk and the Swiss Guards. You must see and admire Michelangelo’s stunning frescos in the Sistine Chapel. Take advantage of our Vatican City hotels which are all located within a short walk of the Pope's balcony.

From the Coliseum to the Pantheon, the Sistine Chapel and Palatine Hill, Rome is home to some of the world’s most recognizable landmarks. While the impulse to rush from sight to sight is understandable, don’t sell yourself—or the city—short. Some of your best discoveries in Rome will be those you happen upon by accident; ducking into an ancient church on a side street housing a masterpiece of sacred art, stumbling upon an expansive piazza in the early morning light, and sampling the best pizza that you’ve ever tasted in your life.
Rome is the Eternal City, so approach it as if you have all the time in the world to explore. There's no need to cram everything into one visit as you'll soon fall under the city's spell, and return again and again.
'La Dolce Vita'
If you're searching for the good life, all roads lead to Rome. The city is a dizzying combination of cosmopolitan capital and ancient wonderland. The home of Catholicism, it also plays host to nightclubs that stay open until dawn.
One of the most iconic images of the city comes from the filmmaker Federico Fellini, one of Rome's most adoring fans. In La Dolce Vita (The Sweet Life), Anita Ekberg frolics in the beautiful Trevi fountain after a long night's revelry. The scene is spontaneous, sexy, carefree, and a little crazy, reflecting Rome itself and the visceral impact it has on visitors. Try a romantic cruise down the Tiber River or watch the world go by from a Trastevere café and you too will believe life can't get any sweeter.
Big city charms
Rome is situated in the middle of Italy, the perfect position for the country’s capital. In some respects, however, it is set apart from the rest of the country and has a personality all of its own.
Rome is as much about frenetic traffic as chilling over cappuccino, appreciating art as appreciating gelato on a hot summer day. Hit the museums (the Vatican Museums are extraordinary, as are the Capitoline Museums and a litany of others), but then slow down and stroll through Villa Borghese, a large park well loved for picnics (and its museum the Borghese Gallery).
With its culture, art, food, and wine, a Roman holiday is like no other, distilling all that can be enjoyed in life. Hide
