Romantic getaway in the Eternal City
Do you feel work stressed? Do you need a break from studies? Escape for a weekend in Italy! Have you ever visited the Italian capital? Visiting Rome, the Eternal City, is an experience that everyone should be able to do at least once in their lifetime. Surprise your sweetheart or your best friend and left for a weekend break in Italy.
Rome presents itself as a great European capital, which has preserved its immense cultural and monumental heritage. Visit the whole city in two days is actually impossible but you can take advantage of the limited time available to get a general idea of Rome and experience the atmosphere of a timeless city.
Since a weekend offers a fairly small amount of time, the advice is to take a sightseeing tour, taking a quick glance of all the monuments, perhaps from the top of a panoramic bus. Another, even easier and cheaper way to fast visit Rome, is to follow the metro line A which correspond to the major monuments of the capital.
Equip yourself with a guide of the city a few days before departure. Give it a look while you are traveling or flying to Italy and mark the monuments or the places that you should definitely visit. If you don't want to buy or download a guide, just buy a map of the city as you get to Rome which highlights all the most important monuments and squares.
A weekend in Rome is ideal for shoppers. Among the exclusive shops of Via del Corso and Piazza di Spagna and the typical flea markets in Porta Portese, you are spoiled for choice.
Take advantage of your short break to sample the local cuisine. Rome is full of restaurants, pizzerias with wood-fired oven and ice cream shops!
The outskirts of Rome deserves a weekend apart to be visited at least briefly. Check the city of Tivoli, where there is the magnificent Villa d'Este, the Castelli Romani area, the town of Ostia near the sea. After the first thrilling weekend in Rome, you will definitely plan the second.
