    Attractions

    The Colleseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill

    The one ticket gives you access to all three of these archeological treasures and its worth devoting a day to explore them properly. Awe inspiring.

    Monastero dei Benedettini

    I thoroughly suggest taking a guided our around here, the monastery is beautiful, and our guide was very knowledgeable. We even got to go into some parts that were not open to public access. It's interesting to see and learn about the changes that had to be made during an earthquake and when lava flowed through during an eruption nearby.

    St. Peter's Basilica

    We couldn't miss this one. The Vatican, St Peter's square and fountain, wandering round them is an interesting experience of chills and awe. I really can't describe it other than it's a mistake to not visit for at least an hour.

    Grazia Deledda (Nobel Prize-winning) Museum

    The home of the Nobel Prize-winning writer Grazia Deledda.

    B&B Vobis

    This is an awesome museum of art and cars. A Ferrari GTO? Yes please! Amongst the cars there are also motorcycles and vintage speed boats. The museum section is very informative and interesting, and the art is beautiful... though I had to be dragged away from the cars.

    Places To Eat

    Tenuta del Gelso

    A beautiful winery and restaurant. Ariana taught us all about their wine making process and we took a walk though the orange orchard. We sat at a window and looked out onto the vine yards while we ate. Our lunch was delicious, especially the sweet, juicy oranges we got to taste.

    Ia perfect location not far from the Spanish Steps, Life specialise in a quirky modern take on traditional Italian dishes, with an emphasis on luxurious ingredients such as black truffles and fresh lobster.

    Gisira Pizza and Drinks

    Mmmm pizza and beer after a long (but great) day. After looking around, I chose the volcano pizza - a calzone in the shape of a volcano. Don't forget to make room for dessert, especially the chocolate fondant. What we couldn't finish of our pizzas the staff put in a box for us to take away. The atmosphere is lively but relaxed, especially sitting outside in the street.

    Burgerbar Restaurant

    Not really "typical Italian" but delicious nonetheless! Though I love my pasta, it was a nice break. The place is in a mall/shopping centre so it was good to have a quick meal while looking around. The burgers are fresh and tasty - nothing like any other fast food burger joints.

    Traveller Tips

    Stay overnight at Orvieto

    Ovieto is a beautiful town, teeming with tourists during the day. But by night, they've got into the buses and gone. Stay a night or two to enjoy Orvieto without the throngs.

    Visit Marina Piccola

    This lovely wee marina is worth finding. The village has some cool cafes which play live music at night.

    Check out the roman ruins under Biblioteca Salaborsa

    Old Roman roads are underneath this library. The roman roads and ruins can be viewed through the glass floor or you can go down stairs and walk through them on an elevated path.

    Book in advance

    Because there are so many tourists in Rome, it's a good idea to book tickets in advance if you don't want to spend hours waiting in line to see the most popular attractions. Sometimes advanced bookings earn discounts too!
