Avoid the restaurant at all costs. It took nearly an hour to serve coffee and we still didn't get the bill - just gave up and handed the cash to a startled waitress. But the rest was magnificent. We had a brief tour of the...More

Don’t even know where to begin because everything went wrong from start to end. Booking for 14.00 on the terrace, got tended at 14.25 at an indoors table. Told Mr.Edoardo who got us a table 30 minutes later directly under the sun. At our bewilderment,...More

I was pleasantly surprised. They have tours available in different languages so unless you’re bilingual, it may require some planning. I ended up on the French tour and can only hope that I translated well enough. The property was amazing and hearing about all of...More

If you are going to tour Villa Medici you may want to do it first. We toured the Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica, and the Sistine Chapel and nothing compares after that. The 90 minute tour centers mostly on the gardens and only 1/2 an hour...More

To be honest, I didn't really do my homework on the villa, so I didn't expect that all visitors must have a guided tour for their visit. Luckily, an English speaking tour was just about to start once we arrived. The tour I believe is...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best

Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
