For historical character, atmosphere and the most romantic setting, Rome is the focal point of Italian vacation destinations. The capital city is famed for its glorious architecture and the centre of Roman Catholicism. The old quarter of the city harks back to the Medieval and Renaissance periods of Roman power, aligned to the Vatican – the home of the Vatican City state and some of the world’s most spectacular historical relics.
As if that wasn’t enough attractions for visitors to divulge, the Colosseum and the heart of Ancient Rome can be found towards the centre of the city. Italian cuisine is some of the most delicious and revered across the globe. It can be hard to find the best restaurants, but by following the locals visitors can get a picture of the most popular haunts for luxurious fresh pastas, pizzas and meats.
The city is also dominated by its sporting culture, with its two football teams, Roma and Lazio battling it out at the highest level both domestically and continentally. The best way to enjoy your vacation in Rome is by renting an apartment or villa for the entirety of your stay. The ability to situate yourselves a matter of metres from the Colosseum, as well as the privacy of the suburbs, gives tourists plenty of choice for a vacation rental.
