For nearby sights and attractions you’ll be spoilt for choice, so plan ahead to try and fit in as much as possible during your stay. Start with the Vatican City with its museums, stunning architecture and famous artistic masterpieces, and the neighbouring St. Peter’s Cathedral. This impressive Basilica has been worked on by many of the greatest names in Roman history; Raphael, Michelangelo, Maderno, Bernini, who have all left their mark on the building for visitors today to admire. Bernini’s baldacchino stands 100 feet tall above the high altar as the majestic focal point of the building in glistening gilded bronze. If you make the trip on a Wednesday morning you’ll be able to join the audience of tourists and Catholic devotees in St. Peter’s Square to see and listen to the Pope.
If you crave some fresh, clean air and greenery away from the tourist hotspots and urban life, visit the gardens of Villa Borghese. This centrally-located public park is a wonderfully peaceful spot where cyclists, dog-walkers and picnickers all come to take a break from the crowds. Once inside there is a contemporary art museum in the Orangery, Museo Carlo Bilotti, that is well worth a visit. If you’re with kids, head up the hill behind the Trastevere to the expansive Villa Pamphili Park where they can take a pony ride through the trees or feed the turtles in the pond, whilst you relax with a book and a gelato in the shade.
Have a wonderful stay in magnificent Rome!
