Rome: a city of undisputed beauty, the capital of Italy and of the World, is a popular destination for anyone looking to enjoy a holiday full of entertainment and fun, as well as of inimitable Roman hospitality.
Museums of all types open their doors to curious tourists: from the grand Vatican Museums with the Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms, all the way to Galleria Borghese, where the renown patron of arts, Scipione Borghese, collected the undisputed masterpieces such as Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne, paintings by Caravaggio, and Canova’s Paolina – the immortal works in an enchanting setting, an absolute must-see.
Every year Rome plays host to some grandiose exhibitions set in the most prestigious locations, to leave you enthralled and enchanted.
Rome itself is a masterpiece and the sunset view over the rooftops, if you happen upon one of those privileged spots, such as the Quirinale Stables, is moving like a painting by Raphael.
The Capital is also ready to put on a show with its important theatres, from the Sistine, a stage for many an unforgettable musical performance, to Teatro Argentina where every major actor is keen to make an appearance. The show continues in a lighter key at the city’s stadiums, or in a slightly different direction – with lyrical opera. In summer, you can enjoy some unique opera performances at the Baths of Caracalla.
