Explore Trastevere, a bohemian neighbourhood of cobblestone streets, filled with artisan shops selling treats of all kinds.
Admire masterpieces in Galleria Borghese and stroll through Villa Borghese, where you’ll find treasures such as Antonio Canova’s sculpture of Napoleon Bonaparte’s sister as Venus Victrix, Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne, and Caravaggio’s self-portrait as Bacchus.

Food & Drink in Rome
Sit outside at any Italian café to enjoy a traditional aperitif, which range from sweet Bellinis to tart Negronis.
Scoop your way through some of the best gelato in Italy at Giolitti, taking the time to enjoy all the best ingredients from around the country. Around since 1900, this is as old school as you’ll find it.
Let us not forget the most classic of all Italian dishes: pizza. Stop in at La Pratolina, Seu Pizza Illuminati or Piccolo Buco for some of the best. Though it would be hard to get it wrong, no matter where you stop off.
