Tips for your trips. Tourist information. Official websites.

Rome is the capital city of Italy. The city has been a major human settlement for almost three millennia. Rome’s history spans 28 centuries. While Roman mythology dates the founding of Rome at around 753 BC, the site has been inhabited for much longer, making it one of the oldest continuously occupied cities in Europe.

Among the most significant resources: plenty of museums – Capitoline Museums (map), the Vatican Museums (map), Galleria Borghese (map) >> museodiroma.it

Vatican City (wiki, map) is an independent country inside the city boundaries of Rome, the only existing example of a country within a city.

The Esquilino rione (map), off Termini Railway Station (map), has evolved into a largely immigrant neighbourhood. It is perceived as Rome’s Chinatown. Immigrants from more than a hundred different countries reside there. A commercial district, Esquilino contains restaurants featuring many kinds of international cuisine.

Everyone one week a year there is no charge for admittance to all publicly owned landmarks and historical sites. This week, known as “La settimana dei beni culturali”, typically occurs in mid-May and for those 7 to 10 days every landmark, archaeological site and museum belonging to government agencies is accessible and free of charge.

For two weeks in August, many of Rome’s inhabitants shut up shop (literally) and go on their own vacations; many stores, restaurants and other amenities will be closed during this time.

The Metro is the most punctual form of public transportation in Rome. All lines open at 05:30 and stop running at 23:30, except Fridays and Saturdays, when the last trains leave from the stations at 01:30.

The Tram routes mostly skirt the historic centre, but there are stops convenient for the Vatican, the Colosseum, and the Trastevere area. The number 8 does run into the centre to Largo Argentina, not far from the Pantheon, and terminate at Piazza Venezia.
