Architecture, art, cuisine, fashion, culture – all this has long attracted and will attract tourists to Rome. Travel Mode ON picked up some interesting sights and unique ideas for you, which should be realized when you find yourself in Rome.
Where to stay?
In Rome are many historical monuments, which you could find across the city. By the way, you can choose to stay near the attractions you want to see. Therefore, you can stay in the Coronari area, around the Pantheon and the Navona square, via the Giulia, the Trastevere area, the Monti and the Via Veneto (there are almost all Rome hotels), via the Cicerone and the Piazza Farnese.

As for hotels, everyone has their preferences, so it is very difficult to advise you, but here are some hotels with a very convenient location, from which you can walk to the main historical sights in half an hour:
Where to eat?

Breakfast in Rome means a coffee. So, you have to find a cafe with a perfect breakfast. For example:
- Coromandel (Via di Monte Giordano, 60). There are excellent pancakes and omelets.
- Le Carrè français (Via Vittoria Colonna, 30). There are sandwiches and omelets, croissants, baguettes. Also, they have a wonderful pastry shop and a small store of goods from France.
The average bill for breakfast: € 10-12.
For lunch and dinner (which are at 13:00 and at 20:30). We recommend several places:
- La Carbonara (Piazza Campo de’ Fiori, 23). You can eat great pasta.
- La Montecarlo (Vicolo Savelli, 13). You can taste a delicious pizza.
- Assunta Madre ( Via Giulia, 14 ). You can try fish and seafood.

Fontana dell’Acqua Paola
While other tourists are taking photos at the crowded Trevi Fountain, you can take a taxi and go to an equally beautiful fountain near Trastevere. The bonus will be a picturesque panorama of the city.
There is a stunning botanical garden, a true oasis in the center of Rome with succulents, palm trees, a bamboo garden, and a Japanese corner.
About churches (and there are more than 900 of them in Rome), we recommend three unusual ones: Chiesa St Luigi in Francesi, then the only Gothic church of Chiesa del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio and one of the best works of Francesco Borromini – the church of Chiesa di St’Ivo alla Sapienza, which is only open on Sunday morning.
EUR quarter: here you can admire modern Rome – the Square Colosseum – Palazzo della Civilta italina, where you can visit the Fendi exhibition. You can get there by taxi and enjoy the city without tourists.
What to do?
In good weather, we advise to walk a lot – do not be afraid to turn off from the tourist routes and to walk through the hidden streets of the city or take a ride on excursions on cute Vespa or vintage Fiat 500 scooters.
