Enhance your trip

  • Full of museums, temples, monuments, fountains and even a lake, the Vila Borghese gardens are a serene escape from the busy city center of Rome. There is so much to see that by going for a relaxing stroll around the grounds you will undoubtedly discover a Roman gem or two!
  • World famous for its architecture and decoration completed mainly by Michelangelo, the Sistine Chapel is an iconic Italian landmark that simply must be experienced. As the official residence of the Pope and all the figureheads of the Catholic Church, Vatican City is the smallest independent state in the world.
  • Located upon the Capitoline Hill of Rome, the Capitoline Museums are home to a vast array of ancient statues, artwork and archaeological discoveries which can be traced back as early as the 15th century.
  • Barberini Palace is home to half the National Gallery of Art featuring collections from world artists, including the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica, which is considered to be one of the most important collections in the whole of Italy.
  • Santa Maria Maggiore was built in the 3rd or 4th centuries and is the largest Roman Catholic Church in the world dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The architecture and décor of both the exterior and interior of the church is breath-taking.
  • Once used for Roman public spectacles such as gladiator contests and battles of the sea, the remaining Colosseum is now a very popular tourist attraction and serves as an example of the amazing innovation used all those centuries ago.
  • Literally step back into Ancient Roman times by visiting the Palazzo Valentini in which the remains of Roman houses has been discovered. Learn in more detail about what life was like at that time by visiting the Museum as well.
  • The National Museum of the 21st Century Arts is dedicated to the innovative contemporary art of recent decades. Even the building itself is a sight to behold!
  • At the centre of the ‘Seven Hills of Rome’, Palatine Hill is one of the oldest parts of the city and still to this day offers visitors stunning views that you wont find anywhere else – don’t miss out!
  • You certainly don’t need to be the next Michelangelo to adore the beauty of Ostia Antica through sketching. Rome has produced so many priceless pieces of art it would be a shame not try and create your own!
