Rome Travel Articles

Get our NEW iPhone/iPad App for Rome -- 375 detailed entries on everything from ancient sites to trattorias -- just $2.99

Few cities in the world can compare with Rome and it is so full of things to see and do, one would truly need a lifetime in the Eternal City to explore every corner. There are numerous ancient wonders - the Colosseum, the Forum, the Pantheon are some of the big ones but new ancient ruins are constantly being discovered. One of the ways in which is truly Eternal. For art, go the Borghese Gallery. For a touristy must, throw coins in Trevi Fountain. Sit on the Spanish Steps, too. Of course, another must-see is the country within the city of Rome -- Vatican City.  Visit the trendy neighborhoods of Trastevere and Monti. These are just a few of the highlights of a visit to Rome.
