Rome is a fabulous mix of history, archeology, art, religion and religious culture and delicious food; and while it certainly is the most popular place to visit in Italy, it’s also a city that has remained true to itself – very much a place where locals live.
Rome is an ancient city. That means wherever you go in the city, you’re going to find some super old buildings to marvel at. Some of those historic buildings aren’t that ancient – there are plenty of Renaissance (and other ages) wonders to visit too. The palazzi and piazze spread throughout the city are all sorts of beautiful.
The modern architecture is interesting too,
Perhaps inspired by all the city’s architectural legacies, the impressive buildings in Rome didn’t stop in the 19th century. Today there are many more modern examples of architecture in the city, from the 20th century to contemporary structures.
The fountains are beautiful, and there are a lot of them to be found across the city. From the famed waters of the Trevi Fountain, to lesser known masterpieces of marble and engineering, there’s no getting away from the fact that Rome has some of the world’s most beautiful fountains.
Language: Italian, but you’ll find that the locals of popular areas speak English quite well.
Credit Cards and ATMs: Credit cards are widely taken so it should not be much of an issue. There are ATMs almost everywhere across Rome.
Plugs: The plugs in Italy are type C, F and L. The standard voltage is 230V, and the standard frequency is 50Hz. We recommend buying a universal adapter (make sure it has surge protection) and using a converter for hairdryers and hot tools.
Safety: Rome is a safe place to visit. In fact, Rome is one of the safest Italian cities to visit—with a lower rate of theft complaints than Milan, Bologna, and Florence.
