Comfortable shoes


Be prepared for long walking, sometimes among ruins. Bring comfortable shoes so you will be able to see Rome in the best possible way.

The food is really, really delicious


Italy is not a place for diets. Eat as much as you can, the local food is incredible, and is much more than pizza and pasta (but try them too, of course!). And do not miss the gelato, try different tastes every day.

Wander around


Take some time off, wander around in the streets of Rome. In every corner, you will discover something magical and fascinating to see.

Make a wish


Throw a coin in Fontana di Trevi, maybe your wishes will come true and you will return to Rome again.
