The fact that Rome is the most visited city in Italy is not
surprising. Whilst walking along the ancient cobblestone streets
you will certainly feel like you have been transported back
2,000 years in time. Brimming with monuments, churches, art
galleries and palaces, you will need to plan your time well
just to skim the surface! Below are a few of the must see
sights and a few hidden jewels.
On the top of the list is the ancient Colosseum.
This amazing amphitheatre is in many people’s opinion
the greatest architectural work of the Romans. Next door you
will find the Roman Forum, where Roman civilisation
was cradled. To fully understand how the Ancient Romans once
lived a guided tour is advisable.
If you only visit one museum in Rome, make sure it is the
Vatican Museums. A delight to the senses
nowhere else will you see so many artists such as Rafaello,
Caravaggio, Bernini, da Vinci and many more on display in
Rome. Your visit will conclude in the Sistine Chapel
with Michelangelo’s iconic image of God giving life
to Adam. With over 900 churches to choose from in the historic
centre make time for the most famous of all, St. Peter’s
Roman squares, fountains and sculpture are on every corner
of the historic centre and each one is unique. Sit on the
famous Spanish Steps, throw coins into the
Trevi Fountain, admire the Caravaggio’s
inside the twin churches of Piazza del Popolo and stroll around
Piazza Navona, which was used in ancient times for the “agones”
Make time to visit one of the hidden gems of Rome. Open to

Built over ancient ruins, this palace belonging to the Colonna
family for over 20 generations will take your breath away.

A spooky hidden gem is the Capuchin Crypt on Via Veneto.

Directions – The full postal address of the Hotel Euro
Quiris Rome is Via Dei Mille, 64, 00185 Roma (RM). Our choice
location by Termini Central Station could not be easier to
reach. In the absolute centre of the city, Termini is Rome’s
main transport interchange, where all buses, metros and trams
pass and where all arrivals from outside the city see their
first glimpses of Rome.
Both airports are linked to Termini by trains and buses and
a taxi should cost no more than €40 during the day.
To reach the hotel, exit Termini on Via Marsala (this is
where the coach drops you off if you’re coming from
Ciampino Airport on Easyjet or Ryan Air). Cross the road,
go up Via Marghera and turn right onto Vie dei Mille. Look
out for our sign at number 64.
