It is easy to understand why Rome is described as, ‘the world’s biggest open air museum’. From the second travellers set foot in Italy’s capital they are mesmerised by the art, fashion, history and architecture around every corner. It is effortless to explore this city as every step holds a new discovery.
With so much to see, the hardest thing to do in Rome is to take a step back, as visitors can all too easily get caught up in discovering attraction after attraction. Instead, take a day away from the sights and sit in a piazza, watch the world go by, and enjoy a slice of real Italian pizza.
Stop and become completely immersed in the beauty of Rome, as this will be the biggest treat of all.

If you are going to go to the Forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum then you can buy a combined ticket. Go to the Palatine Hill entrance ticket kiosk to buy the ticket and start here first, as the queues are far shorter, the kiosk at the Colosseum has by far the longest queues, and you can then queue jump at the ColosseumBy Angharad Yates
