Things to do in Rome
Colosseum, Rome

Buonarroti Home guest house is located in the perfect area to begin exploring this wonderful city. There are so many things to do in Rome – countless churches, museums and galleries, beautiful parks, great shopping, epoch-defining architecture; Rome is ancient, classical and modern history in a nutshell. It’s impossible to list everything, of course, but here are just a few suggestions of the more important landmarks: Just five minutes from the Buonarroti Home Guest House is the great amphitheatre, the Colosseum, a monument to the magnificence of imperial Rome.

 

Built nearly 2000 years ago as a stadium for gladiatorial displays and shows and capable of holding over 50,000 spectators, the sheer scale of its remains are simply awe-inspiring. Just along the Via Sacra, the Imperial Forum was the site of all of the most important public buildings of ancient Rome and the imaginative visitor can relive the spirit of the empire amongst the ruins of a mighty civilisation. Of course, Rome’s most popular site is in a different state: St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican museums are as awe-inspiring as any place in the world. A lifetime, let alone a day, is simply not enough to see the rich arts and architecture on display in the museums, so arrive early!

Other must-see sites include the famous Trevi Fountain, especially beautiful in the evening. The Pantheon, a huge influence on renaissance architecture, is a formidable building near the bustling Piazza Navona, which, with its many churches, cafes, fountains and artists is a lively place for the visitor to enjoy. The Villa Borghese is a veritable haven away from the busy streets, with beautiful gardens, galleries and museums. The Spanish Steps of the Piazza del Spagna cascade impressively down from the Trintá dei Monti Church.

There are hundreds of excellent bars, restaurants and cafes, and the shopaholic visitor will be in heaven in the chic boutiques and stylish department stores the piazza del Spagna and Via del Corso!

With the convenience of the 2 star Buonarroti Home’s location close to Termini station, another option worth considering is a trip outside Rome to the ruins of the old port of Ostia, or to the gardens of the Villa Adriana at Tivoli.

And remember, our friendly staff will happily arrange guided tours if you prefer!
