Tag Archives: Rome
But Rome is not only about “old stuff” and ancient history. Rome is also one of the Italian cities where all the most famous artists and architects want to leave a trace of their work.
Auditorium Parco della Musica
One of the most fabulous examples of modern art & architecture in Rome is the Auditorium “Parco della Musica” (Music Park) designed by the most famous Italian modern architect: Renzo Piano. This beautiful structure is composed of 3 concert halls (Sala Petrassi, Sala Sinopoli and Sala Santa Cecilia) and by an open theater that recalls the structure of an ancient roman theater.
We frequently use them as a reference, but ask the common traveller to list you the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and they might do well to tick off three…
How well do you know them? Taj Mahal? Iguazu falls? Pyramid of Giza? Well, you’re right….kind of: these three all appear in separate lists.
In truth, there are several world wonders lists, and some countries even have their own ‘wonders’ list.
To clarify things we’ve decided to make a rundown of the three most important ‘World Wonders’ lists:
The New 7 Wonders, the Ancient World Wonders, and the Seven Wonders of Nature. Be prepared to be blown away!
A vacation should be an experience that, from start to finish, is fun, exciting and special. Minibars and flat screen TVs just don’t turn me on anymore. I want to be wowed.
Luckily, I’m not alone. A number of hotels now offer a choice of unique designs and decor, ranging from romantically themed rooms to upside-down mirror suites. Some of these just have to be seen to be believed.
Come with us on a tour of ten of the top theme hotels around the globe.
Comics Guesthouse, Rome
Europe might be full of foreigners, small hotel rooms and questionable border security, but one thing it really does have going for it is the depth and breadth of history throughout the continent. Like tropical rainforest is for plant and animal species, Europe is an area of immense cultural richness.
What follows is an introduction to UNESCO-listed attractions in Europe. In this post I’ll concentrate on the most famous ones. However, it’s definitely worth looking beyond the obvious to uncover less well-known destinations.
Let’s move from west to east, so it will feel a bit like we’re travelling forward in time.
Some people like to patronise chain hotels because they offer a standard level of accommodation. It can be reassuring to know what level of service and facilities to expect when you stay in a Hilton or a Holiday Inn. Conversely, if you stray off the beaten path you’re forfeiting the kind of reassurance that comes with brand standards.
However, sometimes taking a risk can pay dividends. Take the following hotels, for example; if names are anything to go by, what kind of fun extras might they offer?
Following our Top Rome Blogs post we contacted some of the bloggers and asked a few questions to improve our knowledge of Rome and its spirit and to get some useful tips for all the travelers wishing to visit the Eternal City.
The bloggers that kindly participated in this project are the following:

Rome is one of the oldest cities in the world and I hope this small insiders guide will help you to find your way and to have a wonderful vacation!
All roads lead to Rome – this saying explains in one sentence how magnificent, fantastic and awe-inspiring is the Italian capital, Rome! The Eternal City is one of the biggest cities in Italy and Europe and is, for sure, one of the most historical attractions in the whole world. Rome was once the capital of the whole world and it is still possible to find evidence of the city’s glorious past.
We already published our A to Z about Rome, but today we want to give you some useful links to blogs dedicated to this amazing city to help you out find more information. Like we did with the top Paris blogs, we’ll give you a valid list of blogs where you can find tips from the locals and fresh news about Rome. Of course, talking about Italy, most of these blogs are about food…so, if you are a food addict, you can’t miss them!
From time to time I’m quite sure that you, like me, are just surfing the Internet trying to find some inspiration for your next trip; perhaps you’re looking for something that can leave you speechless, breathless, and completely astonished.
Some travelers base their decision on a friend’s experience, some of them search for images in Google to find something interesting, some may browse the travel blogs. My chosen method, however, is to search for amazing videos on YouTube and to draw inspiration from there. Having some experience in this, I really would love to share with you these fantastic videos about some destinations I think you shouldn’t miss.
All of these videos are made using a technique called ‘Time-Lapse’: recording whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that which will be used to play the sequence back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster (and thus lapsing). Okay, this is the theory; let’s enjoy the videos now!
There are few cities that you can’t miss in your lifetime, and one of them is Rome, believe me! Once you have landed in Fiumicino Airport, the first thing you want to do is get to your hotel, have a bit of a rest…and then what? Well, there’re so much stuff to do, so much food to taste, so many monuments to see that even a month won’t be enough time for you. That’s why I want to give you some tips and suggestions of tourist attractions in Rome that you can’t miss, and that are all for free!
The Pantheon is a temple dedicated to all the gods of Ancient Rome and was built in 126 AD. The building is circular, with a portico of three ranks of granite columns. The central corp of the building is a huge rotunda covered with a concrete dome that has a central opening to the sky named oculus.
This time on our City A-Z list we have the beautiful and scintillating Italian capital of Rome. There is so much to write about Rome that we found ourselves struggling to decide what to include; each letter on this list represents just a small factor of what Rome is all about. If not the most, this amazing city is certainly one of the most popular destinations in Europe; trust us when we say that it’s not all thanks to the beautiful Italian women and the delicious food. Rome has a certain atmosphere that is simply supreme and that’s what makes it so unique. Read our A-Z list and start getting to know Rome from the inside out.
