Rome, thought to be one of the oldest cities in the world having been the epicentre of the Roman Empire, has a history spanning 2500 years. Not surprisingly then, the city boasts some of the most iconic ancient monuments in the world.

Let’s start with Palatine Hill. Myth has it that this was where the famous twins Romulus and Remus, who were raised by wolves, were found. Rome then got its name from Romulus who killed his twin brother, but that’s another story.

Imagine you have a three-day stopover in this fabulous city. Your days will be full as there are so many sights to see, the Colosseum, Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, etc. It may be an idea to rent a few scooters, popular with locals, and explore the city with your fellow cabin crew. This way you’ll blend in beautifully with the trend-setting Romans.

The Colosseum, a central feature, famed for its public gladiator tournaments attended by Emperors, truly lives up to its name and is huge. Built between 70 and 80 AD, this circular structure could hold up to 80000 spectators.

Head on over to the Pantheon constructed in 118 AD by emperor Hadrian and marvel at the splendour of one of the world’s best-preserved ancient buildings. Relatively close by is the beautiful Trevi Fountain which pays tribute to the Roman God, Oceanus who can be seen riding his chariot pulled by Tritons and taming several Hippocamps. Here tourists are known to toss a coin into its waters and make a wish.

From here it’s an easy walk to the Spanish steps which feature in such movies as ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ starring Julia Roberts.


By now, you’ll be ready to find a local street café where you can order a genuine Italian pizza or pasta followed by a delicious gelato whilst watching the beautiful people of Rome pass by.

Assuming you’ve still got the energy, a visit to the gardens situated around the Villa Borghese will provide you with a nature fix. Relax in this 200-acre park and enjoy the various paths and trails that lead through the extensive arrangement of plant life and trees and meander through the various fountains and water bodies.

Your second day can be spent exploring the Vatican City, its own separate municipality, including the Sistine Chapel famous for its Last Judgement fresco painted by Michelangelo. Be sure to snap a selfie with one of the well-known, colourfully dressed, Vatican guards assuming they’ll allow it.

Afterwards, work your way towards the Trastevere neighbourhood with its cobbled streets and characterful old houses. Who knows, you may even see the common sight of a lofty line of washing blowing in the breeze above your head. You’ll also be able to sample some true Italian delicacies at one of the local restaurants.

Your second night and you’re ready to sample some of the local nightlife. Rome has many options to choose from. Bear in mind that Summer is the time when streets become giant outdoor bars where one can meet up for a night to remember. From June to September, one can watch live shows, music concerts, and many other events in the streets of the city.
