Other sights to see that are not as old but still steeped in history include Vatican City with St. Peter's Cathedral, St. Peter's Square and of course, Michelangelo's Pieta. The Vatican Museums includes the Sistine Chapel and displays masterpiece artwork from Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci. There is so much to see here that one day may not be enough to take in all you may want to see.
The best way to visit Rome is to have accommodations that allow you to feel as though you live in this beautiful city. Booking a holiday apartment online will do just this. You can come and go as you wish rather than be ruled by accommodations under someone else's control. Though you will want to dine in many of the fine restaurants in Rome, you won't have to eat every meal out. If you get that prized recipe you love, you can try it right away rather than waiting until you return home.
You will be able to visit Trevi Fountain, Palazzo Barberini, Castel Sant' Angelo and climb the Spanish steps when you wish to go. Whether you are young and in love or young at heart, you can toss three coins into Trevi Fountain, following that romantic custom. The climb up the Spanish Steps brings you to Trinita dei Monti, a beautiful church built in the 16th century. This same area near Piazza di Spagna is where exclusive shops can be found selling the most fashionable high-end clothing in Italy.
Arranging for a holiday apartment online helps make sure you see all of these sights and spend the time at each one that you want. When you come back to it at night, you can relax and feel at home, planning the next day's excursions in comfort.
To help you plan your own sightseeing itinerary, there are many places where tourist information is readily available. Kiosks can be found at San Giovanni, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, Via Nazionale, Castel Sant' Angelo, Trastevere, Forum and Santa Maria Maggiore. Termini and Fiumcino have booths that provide information. All of these places not only have information available but are also wonderful sights to see in themselves.
Plan a trip to Rome and start by booking your holiday apartment online. Once you have visited this city on your own terms, you will want to come back again and again as the hills of Rome will have captured your heart.
