A visit to Rome usually starts with a walk in front of the Colosseum, one of the largest monuments of antiquity, followed by the Imperial Fora, a complex of ancient buildings built by Roman emperors. A short distance away is Piazza Venezia, the heart of the city, with the Senatorial Palace and the Vittoriano dominating the scene.

For a taste of Roman cuisine, you can't miss the traditional cacio e pepe or amatriciana, but also the excellent Jewish cuisine of the Jewish Ghetto or the delicious Japanese dishes of the Ostiense quarter. If you are a lover of shopping, head to the luxury streets of Piazza di Spagna and Via del Corso, where you can find the luxury collections of Italian designers such as Armani, Dolce and Gabbana and Prada, or even international chains.
