Rome is unmissable, take your time, don’t fret about box-ticking and think of Italy as one hundred destinations under the umbrella of one country. There is more to see, eat, visit and experience than anyone holiday could justify. Unless you have a couple of years to travel up your sleeve. Travel outside of the height of the summer season when Tuscany is green and Rome isn’t sweltering. The top attractions of Rome need no introduction – toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain, pay a premium for early access to the Vatican Museums and cover your shoulders for the Pantheon. Away from here, I encourage people to take in the many churches of the city, namely, Basilica dei Santi Quattro Coronati (inside mosaics and an Arab courtyard), Basilica di St Agostine (there is a Caravaggio inside), Chiesa di St Ignazio di Loyola (incredible frescos), San Luigi dei Francesi (another Caravaggio) and Chiesa Santa Concezione dei Cappuccini (the bones Church). Of course, after all that walking you have earnt a feast in a Trattoria, skip the crowds and cross the river to Trastevere for dinner with the locals.
