WHERE
AND WHEN IN ROME _




The best way to see Rome if you have little time, is a guided tour. The tourist tradition of the Capital has allowed the development of a wide and diverse range of Tours: from guided visits to the most famous Roman monuments, to religious tours. In the evening, especially in spring and autumn, it is possible to visit Rome by night with a guided tour, with view on the monuments. The night city landscapes, due to its location on the 7 Hills, are particularly full of charm.
In the tour operators presentation summary, Fiera di Roma has only provided a small selection of the historic companies, with more experience in organising Tours in Rome.




In order to understand a town it is also necessary to know not only its cuisine (which we will discuss further on), but also its food products. Rome, as few European capitals, has the advantage of having preserved some old district markets where, besides the folklore, you'll also be able to find Rome and Lazio's genuine and characteristic food, such as fruit: Terracina strawberries or vegetables: such as the Roman artichokes or cheese: the famous Roman Pecorino.
For your own use, we have provided in the summary some suggestions about the best known and most characteristic sites.




For those who wish more in-depth information about Lazio and Rome's food and wine, we provided a selection of top products. An introductory remark is however necessary: we introduce shops selling excellent quality which, like all over Europe, offer products with prices that are usually above average. This is however justified by a higher quality, which is almost always certified by Italian brand consortia such as DOC or DOCG.




Rome like Milan offers a very wide range of shopping opportunities: from clothing to shoes, from furniture to jewellery.
In our selection, we wish to present offers from shops that sell national and international labels, together with shops selling local artisan products: antiques shops, artistic wood-smiths, restoration shops, plants nurseries, iron-smiths and marble-smiths.




Like for the food markets, in Rome it is possible to find both traditional restaurants and the new proposals by know Italian chefs or young and talented operators, who have enriched Rome's food and wine catering sector.
Also for the restaurants, our summary provides these two proposals together with international catering, in particular Chinese and Japanese restaurants, which are emerging not only for the price, but also for the high quality of the food.




The architectonic charm of some piazzas of the old Rome and of some nearby districts, such as Trastevere, Testaccio, Parioli, Flaminio, allowed the development of many small characteristic bars, which are a night meeting spots for young people and tourists alike. Like we listed in our summary, these places are renowned for food and wine tastings, which make them unique among Rome's small bars: ice creams, aperitifs, cheeses and mozzarella, croissants, fruit juices, are only some of the proposals of this varied world of the Roman night life.
Breweries are growing in Rome with the increase in the consumption of quality beer. The summary provides information about the leading breweries.
Rome has a wide range of international fast foods as well as supermarkets as you can see in our summary.




As many Mediterranean towns, Rome has a vibrant night life from spring until late autumn. Walking through Rome by night, it is possible to discover a different, mysterious, and charming town, full of lights and shadows projected by churches and fountains.
A tour of Rome by night can be the best way of discovering this aspect of the city. Also a trip around the city with a driver or by taxi and a night walk are a valid alternative for those who need more time on their own.
The summary also lists the historic and most prestigious night places for those who wish to know more about music and clubs in the capital.




Perhaps Rome is one of the most diverse cities thanks to the variety of public and private museums. The Vatican museums, the Capitoline museums, the Foro Romano and Palatino are only some examples of the most incredible collection of art and history in the world.
The Borghese Gallery, the Modern Art Gallery and the Maxxi, represent another aspect of the art from the eighteenth to the nineteenth century, and from the twentieth until modern age, due to the quality of its works.
Our summary provides the most useful information about the many museums in Rome.




The development of multi-screen cinemas, like in other European cities, is changing the way Roman people use cinema facilities.
The summary provides information about the major cinemas.
Rome's theatre is going through a period of fundamental changes. Many are the theatres and many are the shows that for the whole season from September until May will alternate on the city's stages. The summary provides information about historic theatres and links to their websites for their listings.




As in all western capitals, Rome offers a wide rage of fitness and wellness centres. Next to the traditional gyms, it is possible to find a wide range of facilities built by national and international groups. Besides the private offer, there is also a range of public structures such as gyms, sport fields, and high-quality swimming pools.
The summary will provide information about the different types of facilities.




Visitors might need local assistance for their vehicles.
The current cars' technology suggests that resorting to ones own car manufacturers and authorised dealers, is the best solution.
Our summary provides information about the major car manufacturers in Rome and their authorised dealers.




The last, but essential, piece of information is a list of car rental companies in Rome and outside Rome and not only the world car rental chains but also small reliable local operators, who also offer chauffeur driven high-range cars.
