Best Things to do In Rome
From finding its way into Shakespearean literature, to becoming one of the most visited cities of Europe, Rome has always been a city, boasting of a rich cultural and religious heritage. Let’s take a look at some of the best things to do in Rome.
The Colosseum: Probably the most recognisable symbols of Rome by people all over the world, the Colosseum are one of the oldest and grandest structures of the Roman Empire. Opened to public in A.D 80, the Colosseum was intended to be an amphitheatre. The Colosseum has witnessed fights of wild animals to gladiator combats and games. It had a capacity of accommodating 50,000 people at a given time. This grand stone structure suffered great damage over the centuries with nearly two-thirds of it destroyed but it continues to stand tall till today and is a must visit because of its sheer royalty and grandeur.
The Pantheon :The Pantheon gains its popularity from the fact that it is by far the most well preserved and architecturally sound building of Rome. The name literally means a temple for all the gods and is one temple built for all gods worshipped in Pagan Rome. An awe inspiring construction of domes and arches, it reflects the ingenuity of architects and engineers at the time. Even though it is a temple, it is used as a burial place for kings and other important figures. One must visit the place to be taken aback by the architectural, geometrical and mathematical genius of the Roman people.
The Vatican The seat of Christianity of the world, the Vatican is the headquarters for the religion. One can travel all around the Vatican and still not run out of museums and chapels and churches to marvel at. Antique paintings, carvings, depicting scenes from the Bible, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms are other breath taking sights one can see here. One cannot possibly come to Rome and return without visiting the Vatican in all its religious and spiritual glory.
St. Peter’s Basilica: Built as a basilica to mark the tomb of St. Peter, the first pope, St. Peter’s Basilica stands as the world’s largest church today. The old church was demolished and a new church was built in its place, which today serves to be the seat of Christianity and an important pilgrimage site for Catholics all over the world, who come to pay homage to the first pope. Yet another architectural marvel standing testimony to the brilliance of Roman architects, St. Peter’s Basilica cannot and must not be missed!

Madhumita's 5 days trip to RomeHello ! Twilight escapades helped us in planning our Maldives trip and they did an amazing job. Everything went so smooth and we just sat back and relaxed. They arranged the stay at the same property that we wanted at even last minute and customised the plan as per our convenience.
Shivam's 10 days trip to RomePros 1. The hotel bookings were excellent 2. The taxi pickup and drop off was excellent 3. They followed up with us regularly on whatsapp during the course of trip 4. The visa process was excellent Cons 1. Just a few (2-3) days after payment of first installment, the agent increased the overall amount by Rs 10000 and threatened not to do the bookings if the extra amount was not paid. However, on vehement protests by us, the excess amount was rolled back. 2. The SNCF trains were cancelled due to the strikes in Paris. However, the agent didn't care to inform us that the trains are cancelled. But, we were closely monitoring the situation and we ourselves informed the agent that the train was cancelled and requested them to book alternate tickets. Then, they booked alternate tickets for us after taking extra payment. In such a case, instead of us informing the travel agent, the travel agent should have informed us about the train cancellation. Had we not been careful, the whole trip would have been spoiled 3. The return flight timings were advanced to 11:50 am instead of 1:10 pm by Aeroflot. However, the agent did not inform us. Our flight could have been missed, had we not been careful.
Raju's 9 days trip to RomeTrip was very well planned & executed by the Responsible person Mr. Shashank, all went well as planned except 1 day driver missed the appointment & not turned up, but the contact person immediately took action & asked us to take another Taxi without waiting for the pre booked Taxi. Response of the team was good . Just few recommendations even though it is not agency mistake or might be we asked for them to booked for us so it happened that is for the Local transportation & unlimited trip passes ask travelers to buy from hotel or dly. the Passes at the hotel as collection of these passes is a little hectic job as you can collect your passes only at pre defined places if booked online. For that you have to have a Taxi to go which is is additional 15-20Euro Expense. Once again Thanks for a memorable trip.
Sahil's 5 days trip to RomeThe itinerary was very well planned to cover and give a very good experience of entire Italy. The tours offered were also great.
