Rome is the famous city built upon seven hills, built, as the myth goes, by Romus and Remus, the birthplace of the Roman Empire. But many of the guidebooks promise and suggest the same old thing: to take in the sights, to eat a pizza, to visit the Vatican. Every single one of these things is a must, but there is a different side to Rome that many tourists don’t appreciate.
There is a side to Rome that offers the sea, a side that offers delicious food without have to compete with hundreds of tourists to get a seat, a side of Rome, that if you just read you guidebooks, won’t see you sharing an elevator with a lion as you are transported up to the Coliseum. So bear our advice in mind and you’ll be able to come back having not just tramped around Rome for a week, having done something so much more satisfying than eating cold expensive pizza in the baking hot streets.
