Experience Roman History
Since the Renaissance, both devout Christians and lovers of art have made the pilgrimage to Rome, for the Popes of the Vatican encouraged not only the Christian faith, but also artists such as Michelangelo and Botticelli. When you travel to Rome, you can gaze up at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel or at the beautiful frescoes of the Raphael Rooms. Rome is home to an impressive array of museums, such as the Galleria Borghese, the Vatican Museums, and the Musei Capitolini. If modern art is more to your taste than the Renaissance, you and your family can view the timeless works of art at the National Gallery of Modern Art.
Bellarome can help you explore the many villas of Rome, which make it one of the greenest cities in Europe. These villas are large green spaces studded with landscaped gardens that were built by the Italian aristocracy. Notable among these are the Villa Borghese, which has important art galleries nestled among its shaded walks, the Villa Doria Pamphili, which is the largest, and the Villa Sciarra, which has playgrounds where the kids can blow off steam after visiting the museums.
Rome is also famous for its Orto Botanico, which is tended by Sapienza University. At its current location, the garden dates back to 1883, but it is the successor of the Papal Botanical Gardens that date back to the Renaissance. The garden overlooks the seventeenth-century Palazzo Corsini, where Queen Christina of Sweden lived from 1659 to 1689. Among the curiosities of the garden is the Giardino dei Semplici, which houses over 300 varieties of medicinal plants, the Japanese garden, which has a remarkable bonsai collection, and the fantastic orchids of the hothouses.
Enjoy Roman Culture
Bellarome is your guide to the rich history and vibrant contemporary culture of Rome. Rome is recognized world-wide as a mecca of fashion. The city houses the headquarters of prestigious designers such as Valentino, Bulgari, and Fendi, and luxury boutiques are to be found along the stylish Via dei Condotti.
Rome is also famous for its food: grab a slice of pizza at Pizzarium, or a coffee at Sciascia, where they have been roasting their own beans since 1919. At Armando al Pantheon, you can enjoy fine Italian dining in the shadow of the Pantheon, or, at the hot new restaurant Romeo, you can enjoy modern takes on Italian classics.
The Roman Summer festival organizes events such as live music, theatre, and dance in famous locations such as the Colosseum. If you are staying into the fall, which is eminently enjoyable, as Rome is blessed with a sunny Mediterranean climate, you can explore the Romeuropa festival of modern art, theatre, music, and dance, which takes place in September, as well as the Roma Cinema Fest and Roma Jazz Fest, which take place in October.
