Rome is one of those classic destinations that make up the vast majority of itineraries in Europe. While today it is the capital of Italy and one of the most visited cities in the world, at other times Rome was once the capital of the world. In this article, you will find a mini guide to the city, which will help you a lot in planning your trip.

Flights to Rome

Rome’s international airport, Leonardo da Vinci, better known as Fiumicino Airport (FCO), serves all the world’s major airlines and is about 30 km from the historic city centre. There is a train station at the airport that takes you to the centre in 30 minutes, making it an excellent transport option to avoid spending your precious euros on unnecessary taxis. In fact, this is already an indication that the rail system in Italy is very well served and is generally the best way to get around there, including between the country’s cities.

Trevi Fountain

There are several water springs with beautiful sculptures scattered around the city, such as the Fontana del Tritone and the Fontana Della Barcaccia. But the most famous is certainly the Fontana di Trevi, which has already served as a film location for several films that feed the collective.

Vatican

Whatever your religion, visiting the Basilica of San Pedro, the museum galleries and the interior of the Sistine Chapel is an incredible, even exciting experience. Don’t miss this opportunity.
