Rome: The Grandeur of Antiquity and Inspiration in Every Corner

by in Travel

The eternal city, Rome, birthplace of the fabled Roman Empire, which at one point was the world’s hegemon. Nowadays, it has become more of a tourist destination than the seat of a world-dominating empire. A trip to Rome should be on everyone’s bucket list, due to its sheer historical significance in shaping the world as we know it today. From stunning museums, to Piazzas, and ginormous structures, Rome has it all. 

When visiting a foreign country, planning ahead is vital. By organising your airport transfers to and from your accommodation, you can guarantee that the start and end of your trip (usually the most hectic times) can be as stress-free as possible. A provider of reliable Rome Airport transfers, who has been operating in the country for years, is AtoB Transfer. They offer a wide range of vehicles of airport taxis, as well as the ability to personalise your ride with one of their many extra add-ons, such as child seats or extra waiting time. 

Colosseum

‘Parco Colosseo’ is located in the heart of the modern city and is a must-see attraction in Rome for its beauty and historical value. You may view the iconic Colosseum, walk in the footsteps of Romans in the Roman Forum, and admire the splendour of the Palatine Hill, where Rome was established.The Roman Colosseum is often included as part of many Italy trips, making it an essential stop for visitors exploring the rich history of rome.

The archaeological park is a must-see in Rome for history buffs, but it is so gorgeous that we strongly advise, rather, suggest, that you include it in your Rome itinerary even if history is not your primary interest. Parco Colosseo sells tickets that include admission to the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and the Palatine Hill.

Pantheon

The Pantheon is one of Rome’s most unusual, one-of-a-kind, and significant monuments.Built in the first century BC as a temple to all deities, the Pantheon was converted into a church in the seventh century AD.Perhaps as a result of this, it has remained in use since its construction and is presently the best-preserved ancient Roman edifice in the city.

The building’s unusual spherical form and a hole in the roof have caught the interest of endless generations of locals and visitors.

Everyone enjoys speculating about what occurs when it rains, and nothing beats getting in when it rains and seeing what happens! Due to its beautiful significance and curiosity factor, a visit to the Pantheon is one of the best things to do in Rome on a rainy day (but not only, it is stunning in all weather!), which also rings true for a Rome airport transfer!

Sistine Chapel

If you feel like hitting up the Pope’s crib, a visit to the Sistine Chapel is a must. Located in the Apostolic Palace, its name derives from the Pope who commissioned its building, Pope Sixtus IV, in 1473. Most of the fame though, doesn’t go to the Pope, but rather to all the frescoes that adorn the walls. Perhaps the most famous are those done by Michelangelo, who in recent years has become renowned as one of the finest artists to have ever walked the planet. Although this one is technically not located in Rome, rather it is in Vatican City, which is a separate country, for simplicity’s sake, we can say that it is in Rome. An AtoB airport taxi can easily get you here from either of Rome’s airports.

Trevi Fountain

The Trevi Fountain is one of Rome’s most famous and popular attractions, and it gets extremely crowded. However, it is popular for a reason, and no vacation to Rome would be complete without at least once stopping to admire it and putting a penny into its pristine waters!

The finest times to see the Trevi Fountain are late at night or early in the morning, as the fountain, located on a small piazza, can get extremely busy; come before or after the large groups of tourists for the finest views.

Stadio Olimpico

Rome is home to SS Lazio and AS Roma, two elite football teams. Both teams call Rome’s largest sports venue, the Stadio Olimpico, their home ground. While only the most daring tourists might wish to go to a Roma-Lazio match (due to the infamous ‘derby’), a journey to the stadium promises to be a spectacle of flares and chanting and a dash of atmospheric drama a million miles away from the exquisite centro storico. 

During the Six Nations Championship event, which is conducted in the late winter months, you can watch a rugby match here if you’d like, although this too can get a little heated, depending on who is playing. Something that doesn’t get heated, unless you’re talking about climate control, is an AtoB Rome airport transfer – that is always relaxed. 

There you go, a little taste of everything that Roma has to offer. By including all (or some) of these to your trip itinerary, you are guaranteed an unforgettable experience that will stay with you for many years, likely motivating you to return many times. We hope you have a great time. Happy Travels!
