The Ultimate Guide to a Enjoying a Luxury Vacation in Rome
Rome is known as being one of the most romantic cities in the world, and quite rightly so when you consider just how much this amazing place has to offer. But as well as being a popular romantic destination, it is also perfect for anyone looking to have the most luxurious and indulgent of vacation experiences…
Dine out in Style
Italian food is famous the world over for its simplicity, healthiness and rich and intense depth of flavor. So, if you’ve booked yourself a reservation in one of the gorgeous apartments in Roma, then it would be silly not to take advantage by eating at one of the nearby restaurants. Il Convivio Troiani is arguably one of the city’s most famous and most popular restaurants. It’s not easy to get a reservation, so try and book as far in advance as possible. The menu consists of an eclectic mix of traditional, classic Italian cuisine, as well as dishes to suit those with a more adventurous palate.
Take in Some Culture
Now this is pretty easy to do when you consider that you’re literally surrounded by history and culture in Rome! The city itself is a kind of museum of sorts, with ruins and traces of Rome’s great past to be found around almost every corner. But if you’d like to take in some more contemporary art, then the Sala 1 gallery should be high on your list of things to do. Even though the gallery offers free admission, don’t think that it makes this activity any less luxurious. Because when you see the space the gallery is set in, you simply won’t believe your eyes, and that’s before you even start looking at the artwork.
Experience Rome’s Nightlife
If you fancy experiencing some of Rome’s legendary nightlife, and finishing the evening with a glass of the finest wine (or two!), why not make a beeline for Cul de Sac? Located in the charming area of Piazza di Pasquino, it’s famous for being the city’s first official wine bar. You can choose to sit outside and enjoy the warm Mediterranean climate. You could instead enjoy your drink and some nibbles indoors, where little has changed since the bar first opened its doors back in 1977. It’s the perfect place for anyone looking for a luxurious and sophisticated evening out.
Panoramic View of the City
We’d highly recommend taking the elevator right to the top of the National Monument of Victor Emmanuel II. Unless, you happen to be scared of heights, in which case we’d suggest you give this activity a miss. Here, you can experience some breathtaking, panoramic views of the entire city.
Walk in the Same Footsteps as Celebrity Icons
There is arguably no greater screen and fashion icon than the legendary Audrey Hepburn. She was one of Hollywood’s most glamorous and beautiful stars. Well, in Rome you can retrace her very steps by visiting the ‘Mouth of Truth’. This medieval artefact was famously featured in a scene of ‘Roman Holiday’, which she co-starred in with Gregory Peck.
So, do you have a taste for the finer things in life? Then, we promise that Rome is guaranteed to exceed even the loftiest of vacation expectations.
