Where's cool stuff in Italy? 1 1640 8 years, 9 months ago by ron (view)

Description:

Rome is quite simply one of the most beautiful and historic cities on the planet. The ancient sites, from the Colosseum to the Pantheon, are every bit as amazing as you’d hope, and there’s enough art, culture, architecture and history to keep anyone occupied for weeks.

But Rome is also a major twenty-first century city, and there’s a lot more to it than just temples and fountains. It's winding alleyways and grand avenues house shops for all tastes, tribes and budgets while the piazzas are full of restaurants and bars putting modern twists on ancient mainstays.

The brilliant nightlife ranges from traditional Italian boozers where you can rub shoulders with elderly wine connoisseurs to hip electro and hip-hop clubs with dancing on open-air terraces. The Eternal City is not just beautiful, it’s a city that has it all – but doesn’t need to show off about it.
