Postcard from Rome

It's a great time of year for a European city break.

Last week I headed to Rome and it was perfect - 16°C, blue skies, sightseeing and plenty of pizza & pasta. Here's my top tips for a visit to the city...


Book a private tour of The Vatican

Without booking fast track tickets or a private tour, you'll spend half the day queuing around the block so it's well worth arranging this in advance.


Try your hand at Italian cooking

Whether it be pasta, pizza or gelato making, a cooking class is a fun way to learn how to prepare traditional Italian dishes.


Drink at the Gallery Bar

A stone's throw from the Pantheon, G Rough's Gallery Bar is a cool spot for an aperitif after a day of walking.


A Vespa tour

This was my favourite part of the trip. It's such an amazing way to see the city, zipping through the small streets and stopping off for gelato, of course. 


Get tickets for the Arena Floor of the Colosseum

These tickets are restricted to a certain amount per day so I'll help you secure them for your trip as it's such a unique way to see the Colosseum.


Take part in a Roman treasure hunt

This treasure hunt around Rome’s most important monuments is great for groups and families to help discover the most precious corners of this city.

Stay at...

Hotel Eden, for a classic stay with superb hospitality, JK Place, for a design-led, centrally located stay or Hotel Vilon, for an art-filled, boutique stay.


Eat Cacio de Pepe

A visit to the city isn't complete without trying this famous Roman dish. I'd recommend Il Giardino or Arlu to sample it!
