Rome Travel Guide

by our Italy expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanEffervescent Italian style finds its expression all around the city on seven hills. The Trevi Fountain or the wedding cake tiers of the Victor Emmanuel monument are nothing if not over the top. Yet, when it comes to seeking out the genuine article, Rome is blessed with more than its fair share of loot. Looking as fresh as the day it was built is the Pantheon, there since 118AD. To Romans wrestling the traffic on their Vespas, the Colosseum is little more than a roundabout. Behind symmetrical façades where Michelangelo frescos adorn Vatican ceilings and poets like Shelley and Keats came looking for inspiration gazing over the Spanish Steps, today’s revellers seem as infused as ever with the charms of the dolce vita.
