Sitting comfortably in fourth place on Travel + Leisure's "Most Desirable Cities" list is the beautiful and majestic Italian city of Rome. 7-10 million people visit Rome each year for its archeological treasures, unique charm, and panoramic views, making it the third most visited city in Europe. Whether you want to brush up on your Italian, take a refresher course in history, or simply enjoy a stunning European city, all roads lead to Rome - so what are you waiting for?
Nicknamed "The Eternal City," Rome features many attractions of historical and/or religious significance, including the Vatican, the Colosseum, and the Pantheon. Rome also contains a vast collection of artistic wonders, which can be found in the city's museums and galleries. Other well-known tourist destinations include Campo de' Fiori, the Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps.
Sightseeing isn't the only thing to do in Rome. Widely recognized as a fashion capital, Rome is the place to shop when you're looking for that one-of-a-kind designer piece or antique collectible. Besides the major luxury fashion houses that are headquartered here, Rome is also home to a unique shopping experience found in the city's bustling outdoor markets.
Rome is also well-known for its eclectic nightlife scene, offering options ranging from Opera Alfresco to all-night dance clubs. In addition, you'll encounter some of the most delicious traditional Italian cuisine and fine Italian wine in the city's many restaurants, most of which offer outside dining (a staple of The Eternal City).
The best time to visit Rome is during the spring and fall seasons, as summers here can be sweltering, and many shops and restaurants are closed in August. Also keep in mind that Rome virtually shuts down on Sundays, with many establishments closed on Mondays as well.
The cultural treasures of Rome are simply unmatched. If a trip to Europe is in your future, Rome should most definitely be the first stop on your itinerary.
