About Rome Attractions
As the locals would say, "Roma, non basta una vita per scoprirla." A lifetime isn't enough to discover Rome. They couldn't put it better. In a city surrounded by history, from Ancient Roman relics and glorious religious remnants to monuments and contemporary art museums, one could never grow bored with Bella Roma. Whether you're an art buff, a foodie, a design geek or just simply interested in immersing yourself into the Italian culture, there's plenty to do in the Italian Capital. For starters, some of the world's best art work by greats such as Michelangelo and Caravaggio can be found in the Vatican Museums, St. Peter's Basilica and dozens of other churches scattered about the city.
Tourists who want to 'do as the Romans do' and live like a local, might spend a day exploring the city's open air markets such as the Campo de' Fiori market. For a real Roman neighborhood, that's off-the-beaten-track, visitors might try spending the day in Testaccio, a working class neighborhood known for its open-air market, MACRO Testaccio and a really good food tour for foodies. From haute couture boutique shopping to throwing a coin in the Trevi Fountain, there are endless ways for you to spend your days in Mamma Roma!
