Love roleplaying? Then take your partner, hop on a Vespa and venture into your own Roman holiday that might turn even better than it did for Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn. For a grand start, go to the Colosseum, the quintessential symbol of the Roman Empire, a former amphitheatre with millennia of history where bloody gladiator fights were the ultimate attraction. Next stop is the fabulous Trevi Fountain, the most popular of its kind in the world, where the chances for your wish to come true will grow astronomically right after you toss in a coin. Mark at least a day in your travel journal for a fascinating visit to the Vatican to admire its mind-blowing galleries, world-renowned paintings and sculptures. No need to worry about the silence rule in the Sistine Chapel, the sublime beauty of the Michelangelo painted ceiling will surely leave you speechless. If history is your thing, definitely check out the Pantheon, the Circus Maximus and the Roman Forum. For those chilled afternoons, go for a walk in the Piazza di Spagna and, after you’ve climbed the Spanish steps, give your wardrobe an Italian vibe in the city’s fanciest boutiques on Via dei Condotti. Done with shopping? Time for a gelato!
