Rome

Less than 1 hour from Casale ‘Regina’….. the most beautiful city in the world, Rome!

Easy to travel to with your own car from Collevecchio – but also easy by train from nearby station Poggio Sommaville/Collevecchio, located only 5 minutes from Casale ‘Regina’.

We’ve compiled a list of some activities for you to do in Rome. But  it’s not just any old list – because we know that you don’t need anyone to tell you what main sights and attractions to see in Rome. You may have visited before and you’ve tried all the regular Rome tourist excursions… you’ve done the Colosseum, Pantheon, Forum Romanum, Vatican City and Spanish Steps to death and probably thrown so many coins into the Trevi Fountain it’s best you don’t start counting! Or perhaps you’re looking for a new way to do an old thing.

This is the list to end all lists. Here are some tips to do in Rome :

  • Buy some good bread and then go to Campo de’ Fiori in the morning and sample the olive oils and balsamic vinegars at the market that is there daily
  • Walk up to Gianicolo Hill and listen out for the cannon that fires every single day at midday and has done since the battle for Rome was won here! Then admire the view of all of Rome – just breathtaking!
  • Eat Carciofi alla Giuda (artichokes Jewish style) and buy fresh baked cookies in the Jewish Ghetto area
  • Pizza, a big bottle of beer (sold at any corner shop) and hang out in Piazza Madonna dei Monti in Monti district and of course a pistachio gelato at Fatamorgana
  • Palazzo Valentini ; using state of art technology such as lasers and sound effects, the archaeological remains of ancient Roman houses are brought to life! Situated in the headquarters of the Province of Rome and just a short walk from Piazza Venezia, it’s educational, fascinating and a must-visit
  • Tired of cornetti at the bar? Head to the pretty Coromandel (Via Monte Giordano 60/61) near Piazza Navona for a sweet or savory sit down breakfast
  • Take the elevator up the National Monument of Victor Emmanuel II (in Piazza Venezia and also commonly referred to as the Wedding Cake building) and take in a stunning panoramic view of the city
  • Get an amazing view of Rome through the Knights of Malta Keyhole on Aventine Hill – one of Rome’s best kept secrets. Use the footpath Via San Sabina to Piazza Cavalieri di Malta. You’ll also get a great view of Trastevere and St Peter from the Orange Garden at Santa Sabina
  • Recreate your own Roman Holiday movie scene and take a Vespa Tour by night
  • Head out late at night in Rome – when all the tourists have gone home safely tucked away in their hotel room beds and see the sites. Visiting the Trevi Fountain at midnight is magical – and probably the only time that you can get an unobstructed photo of the iconic fountain!
  • Head to the local area of Trastevere and take a stroll around the cobbled streets before choosing one of the many excellent local restaurants. It’s a picturesque neighbourhood which has the look and feel of a traditional small Italian town, with people shopping, chatting and drinking espresso at the pavement cafes
  • Hire, borrow or beg a bike and cycle along the Tiber River from Ponte Della Musica to Ponte Marconi. Glorious, great and gritty perspective on the City. You’ll end up near Testaccio – just perfect for lunch at Augustarello in Via G Branca. You could cycle back and go to a concert at The Auditorium

Benvenuto & Buon viaggio!
