Romantic getaway in historic Italy
When you come to Rome (FCO) with your SWISS flight, you want to bring some time just to see the most important sights of the city. The Colosseum, the Forum Romanum, the Pantheon, Trajan’s Column or the Circus Maximus are the most well-known landmarks of ancient Rome. Even bigger are the mighty aqueducts that brought fresh water to every household and public fountain in the old Rome and that are still scattered all over the city and the surrounding areas. The water also powered a thousand watermills of the bakeries. You can walk on one of the many Roman roads still working today, like the Appian Way from Rome to Brindisi. You can go underground and visit the catacombs of early Christianity, which are situated all around the city. More than a thousand churches are scattered all over Rome, dating from the 5th Century through medieval and Renaissance times to the presence. You can find masterpieces of art from Michelangelo not only in St. Peters Basilica. In the little church San Pietro in Vincoli there is one of his finest works, “Moses.” You can find Caravaggio’s “Madonna of the Pilgrims,” frescoes by Giotto, paintings by Raffael and wonderful Byzantine mosaics. The churches of Rome contain so much art, that it would takes weeks to see it all.
The Spanish Steps between Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinità dei Monti are a world-famous sight. The Trevi Fountain is another must-see item, where visitors throw coins into the fountain to ensure their return to Rome one day. For a nice walk or a night out visit the lively quarter Trastevere. After much walking around you may want to rest and have some typical food, like a Roman bruschetta, a baccalà alla romana or penne all'arrabbiata. If you still have some energy left for the evening, you can enjoy the nightlife of Rome that is as vibrant and lively as you would expect from the Italian capital. If you think you have not seen enough of the eternal city, there will always be another SWISS flight to Rome available for you.
