How to begin to describe Rome? It is something that must be experienced by all the senses to be truly appreciated.
To avoid disappointment, make a loose plan of the places you would like to visit.
In and around Rome
Rome is littered with relics of the old world, the Colosseum and crumbling Roman Forum, stunning Basilica of St. Peter standing in St. Peters Square, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and the Vatican City, a state unto itself right in the middle of bustling Rome.
It has been described as one, big, open-air museum!
Highlights in the Vatican include the art collection in the Vatican Museum and the breathtaking Sistine Chapel.
Visit the quirky and creepy Cappuchin Crypt, decorated with the bones of Cappuchin monks!
Day trips from Rome
Ostia Antica is located at the mouth of the River Tiber and was once a seaport of Rome.
Due to a drop in the sea level, however, Osita Antica now sits inland!
Spend a day exploring the remains of beautiful stone apartments and wealthy houses. Orvieto town sits atop a volcanic rock hill.
An exciting feature is the labyrinth of underground tunnels beneath the city streets.
Villa d’Este, in Tivoli, is a simply stunning villa and formal gardens; it is built in the Renaissance style of integrating water features with artistic pieces.
The estate even boasts musical fountains! Drive to the other side of town to visit Hadrian’s Villa.
Rome is not far from the beautiful, Mediterranean coast. A particular gem is the island of Capri, accessible from the city of Naples.
Here you can enjoy scenic boat rides in the balmy ocean air, and visit the Blue Grotto, a cave that brilliantly reflects the blue of the water.
There is also scuba and diving activities on offer.
From Naples you may decide to continue southwards, exploring the Pollino National Park and further to the island of Sicily.
No matter how far you go, rest assured that you will not have to waste any time as most Rome airport hire car offices in Fiumicino Airport will allow you to return your car to a different major city location.
Assisi by Car
Assisi is most famous for the Basilica of St. Francis – St. Francis of Assisi that is! The cathedral itself is remarkable inside and out.
Make sure that you have something to cover up with, as modest dress is required to enter; that means knees, shoulders and chest covered for men and women.
There are several other cathedrals of note in the city, including St. Claire’s Basilica and Church of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva.
Stroll through the old streets, take a refreshing drink from the public taps in the Piazza del Comune.
