Guide to Rome

Romantic, energetic and unrivalled for art, history and culture

Italy’s enchanting capital will take you on a journey through some of the world’s most iconic historical landmarks, captivating art, busting cosmopolitan culture and hot-blooded Mediterranean character.

Situated just inland of the Tyrrhenian Sea in central Italy, Rome is a fantastic stop-off to make during an Italy luxury yacht charter vacation. Over the last 3,000 years it has been constructed into a fascinating urban landscape full of ancient ruins, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and great bars and restaurants at every turn. It’s romantic, inspiring and a hub of energy with so much to see and do that any time spent ashore here will make you memories for a lifetime.

Few destinations can rival the art, history and culture that The Eternal City encapsulates. From the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Pantheon to its many masterpieces of Renaissance architecture, the city is bursting at the seams with the great works of history. Any trip here is not complete of course without visiting the magnificent Vatican City where towering St Peter’s Basilica watches over and offers incredible views of Roma while Michel Angelo’s famous Sistine Chapel frescoes still leave spectators in awe.

When in Rome you must also indulge in the pleasure of Italian feasting. The city’s heady, romantic ambience offers an abundance of gastronomic pleasure, from trendy rooftop terraces, to luxurious Michelin-starred establishments to boisterous pizzerias. For an authentic Italian experience try the locals favourite of Flavio al Velavevodetto which is renowned for its traditional menu but its location on a quiet street on the edge of Testaccio means it’s not often stumbled on by tourists.
