Rome: The city with no beginning and no end

Rome: The city with no beginning and no end

The Italian capital is superb in every sense of the word. There are very few things left to say about this city. It is the perfect showcase of the inception of Western civilization, with an endless range of remains and ancient ruins. Although Rome is dotted with ancient vestiges on every corner, the city reveals a sense of youth, modern and a vibrant daily life. The chaos of its traffic and its crowds are already an inherent part and the charm of this millenarian political, artistic, religious and cultural capital, surviving the swings of the centuries.

Rome is built through a set of layers of fascinating monuments and colossal buildings with some disturbing and inspiring histories, but always curious and evocative ... Be that as it may, Rome leaves no one indifferent.

Among the many mandatory visits of the eternal city, you can’t miss St. Peter's Basilica, the most colossal church on earth. The Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel are an absolute wonder and a once in a lifetime “must do”. And to discover the city of the Caesars, drop by the Roman forum and the Roman Colosseum. One thing is to watch it in magazines or reports, yet quite another to experience it in person. An absolute wonder.

In Rome everything is eternal. The Pantheon, the Borghese Gallery and its works by Caravaggio and Raphael, the Roman Capitol, the Trajan’s Column, the Christian Catacombs, the Arch of Constantine, the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran, the iconic Trevi Fountain, the enigmatic Castel Sant'Angelo, the Capuchin Crypt... among hundreds of spectacular places where you can lose yourself and let the imagination fly.

If you want to enjoy a good walk, a nice meal or a fine glass of Italian wine, you can go to la Dolce Vita street. The name perfectly describes what you can do there. And if you are tired from walking around the city, simply sit in a bench or on a terrace and enjoy the comings and goings of people or some improvised street shows.

What do you need to travel to Italy?

Traveling to Italy is a unique and unforgettable experience . It is a tourist destination of first international level, with an optimal infrastructure and with comfortable and frequent forms of transport. However, there are certain precautions you must take before embarking on one of the most incredible adventures of your life. Read the tips that we have prepared then, to be well prepared.

WHEN TO VISIT ITALY?

The delicious climate of the country makes it a favorable destination 365 days a year. Obviously, northern cities experience a more severe winter, for which you will need appropriate outerwear. In the central and southern regions enjoy mild temperatures throughout the year, being especially stifling in the summer months. Spring and autumn are the great tricks for a delicious trip through Italy. In summer or during Spanish bridges, Italy is also a priority destination. That is why, if you can travel in the low season, when they are not official holidays, you will enjoy more affordable prices and more agile and reasonable waiting queues. In summer, the heat can become the topic of conversation throughout your stay, especially in the south, where you will be permanently looking for a shade or an ice cream shop to refresh you. During the winter, and in the months before Christmas, Italy dresses up as a party, with its traditional Christmas markets. It is a magical time in which to fall for this fascinating country. In sum, there is no bad time to travel to Italy; only that, if you want to travel in high season, you have to contract everything with extreme anticipation and assume the prices and queues derived from mass tourism.

How to get to Rome?

BY PLANE
Rome has 2 main airports. Both of them have direct flights with various UK cities, both with traditional airlines and low cost.

HOW TO MOVE AROUND ITALY
Italy offers an excellent train network between the main cities and regions of the country. The trenitalia.com page informs you of all the destinations, schedules and prices. It is important to bear in mind that there are different types of trains: regional, Eurostar, fast trains, etc. The most convenient is to buy the tickets in advance in order to guarantee your place and it is even possible that a discount. Try to familiarise with the name of the main cities in italian. For instance, Milan=Milano, Padua=Padova, Florence=Firenze, as this may help at the time of booking. The Eurostar trains are usually the most expensive ones, but they guarantee a seat. In the regional ones, cheaper than the first, you won’t be able to guarantee a seat.

OR TRAVEL IN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
When using urban public transport, be aware that train and bus tickets must be validated. This means that, in addition to acquiring tickets, you have to pass them through a machine, which stamps the use of the same with date and time. On buses, tickets can be validated inside the vehicle. However, in the trains, the validation will have to be carried out before mounting on them, on the corresponding machines, which are green and gray, and are at the head of the train tracks. Having said that, this validations is not needed in the high speed trains (Freccia rossa, Freccia Argento), in these trains you have a specific timetable and an assigned seat.

OR BY BOAT
The main islands, Sardinia, Capri and Sicily, are connected to mainland Italy by  an intensive ferry service which, in addition to offering high standards of comfort, is frequent and affordable. There are different operators that offer these services; Before buying your ticket, compare prices and schedules, and make sure you are at the right port and early enough to catch your Ferry.

OR HIRE A CAR
It is another excellent option to explore the island without without being tied to schedules. However. Just bear in mind in Italy, as in most european countries they drive on the other side of the road, so be extremely precautious when renting a car. On another note, also keep in mind that you may not be used to driving in such a chaotic way such as the one in the big cities like Rome or Florence, not to mention Naples. Also, try to get information on parking and restricted access when driving in the cities, as it is often the cause of various fines in a single trip. Driving outside the big cities is a rewarding and unforgettable experience, as well as a wonderful way to get to know the authentic beat of Rome.

OR IN TAXI
In the transfers to the airports it is recommended to previously agree the price of the trip with the driver, to avoid unpleasant surprises. In some of the main cities like Rome, Milan or Naples, authorities have set up standard fares which can be checked beforehand.

Healthcare

Medical care in hospitals and outpatient clinics is correct. As a European, before traveling to Italy, you must obtain the European Health Insurance Card (or EHIC).

In your clinic they will be able to inform you better. With this card, you can receive medical attention in case of emergency. This card is in no way a substitute for travel insurance.

Additionally, it is advisable to get a travel insurance before traveling, which covers medical costs in case of emergency. This private insurance would be very useful in case you had to leave the country because of an illness or accident.

Currency

The euro is the official currency in Italy, so you will have to exchange currency.

ATMs
You will surely be able to withdraw money with your usual card in practically any ATM. However, you will have to consider the banks and cashier withdrawal commission. In many cases, the cashier will not report the commission that will charge you. Find out in advance at your usual bank.

CREDIT CARDS
Most of the establishments in the cities accept the majority of credit cards. Check with your usual bank to avoid uncomfortable surprises
