Rome has something for everyone. From art afficionados to history buffs, foodies and even the outdoorsy type. With so much to do around here, it can be really hard to prioritize what you choose to form your roman holiday memories. So for when it's time to get out of those galleries, museums, stores, restaurants and perhaps even your hotel, add one of these outdoor activities to your list.
Villa Borghese is one of the city's most popular parks and is often dubbed Rome's Central Park. Great for a stroll or even a picnic, row boats can even be hired for a leisurely day on the lake.
For the foodies at heart, why not head to the historic Campo de Fiori market which is open daily until 2pm or take a food tour with Eating Italy Food Tours. They take you off the beaten track to explore Rome's food traditions in the working class neighborhood of Testaccio and the picturesque Trastevere.
Trastevere itself is an attraction in itself and you could actually spend a whole day here. Put your map away and get lost in the narrow cobblestone streets that are so pretty you'll feel like you're on a movie set.
To escape the big smoke and get out of town for the day, the ancient Roman ruins and archeological site of Ostia Antica makes for a great day trip.
So if you love the outdoors, the only problem you'll have in Rome, is trying to fit it all in!
