The architectural, historic, artistic, cultural and spiritual sights of Rome are so profuse and magnificent that they seem at times overwhelming. You’ll never take it all in on a single visit, so relax, enjoy … and plan to return again and again. Invest in a good guidebook and make time to appreciate major must-sees such as the Vatican City, the Pantheon, the Palantine Hill and the ever-charming Trevi Fountain, but be sure to enjoy some time simply at leisure, to stroll around this great capital drinking in the ambiance and savouring the moment.
When in Rome do as the Romans do … Remember that Summers are hot, so if you travel in high season be prepared to pace yourself! Native Romans slow the pace with regular stop-off breaks in the city’s wonderful pavement cafes and gelateria and they linger longer over lunch in the heat Mild weather makes Spring and Autumn delightful seasons for a trip to Rome, but think too about a Winter break here, for although Winters are are cool and at times rainy, there are usually sunny days too and lower temperatures are perfect for those on a sight-seeing mission.
