Thanks to its 2,500-year-long history, Rome is one of the most diverse and culturally rich cities in the world. Despite its being one of the largest European capitals, The Eternal City is rather simple to visit, since most museums and cultural attractions are located in its central neighborhoods.
Our suggestion is to move across the city by foot (if you are a good walker), by taxi, or by the underground network, since the road traffic is notoriously cluttered in Rome and the public bus and tram system is often unreliable and overcrowded.
In a nutshell, there are three main groups of museums and cultural sites in Rome (and the Vatican City): of archaeology, of old master’s and Renaissance art, and of modern and contemporary art. Overall, they hold a number of stunning art masterpieces second to none in the world. Furthermore, artworks in Rome are often surrounded by buildings which are architectural masterpieces in themselves.
A final advice, don’t hurry in Rome, the city has its own, rather relaxed, pace and requires you to adapt to it to fully enjoy its unique personality.
