Hidden treasures in Rome
Your flights to Rome will bring you to exciting places like the Ostia Antica, the impressive remnants of a port city in ancient Rome, which once contributed to the wealth of the empire. You don’t have to buy tickets to see Rome’s best attractions, as the city itself is the greatest museum in the world. You should definitely visit the Parco del Colle Oppio to see the remnants of Nero’s villa.
Go to an authentic pizzeria to eat a truly heavenly slice of pizza. Hearty, home-made Italian pasta is never far away, either. For dessert, treat yourself to a nice, creamy gelato.
Plan your vacation to Rome
A trip to Rome is especially lovely in spring and fall, when the temperatures and amount of visitors balance out nicely. From January to March, it’s easy to find cheap hotels in Rome, as this is the low tourist season. Your flights to Rome with FlyDoha will ensure you have a comfortable landing at Rome Airport and a good start to your vacation.
The sights of the Eternal City of Rome
A flight to Rome will catapult you into a multicultural metropolis, not only known for its ancient treasures, but that also enjoys an excellent international reputation as a fashion and lifestyle city. In addition to the many renowned highlights, there are also less well-known destinations in the city that are just as exciting. The following attractions should add a bit more variety to your stay in Rome.
The Spanish Steps as one of the most popular tourist meeting points
The famous Scalinata di Trinità dei Monti, known as the Spanish Steps, were built during Pope Innocent XIII’s time, in the middle of the city district, on an overgrown slope. The construction was funded by the French King Ludwig XII, and is intended to allow for access between the Santa Tinità dei Monti and the Piazza di Spagna. It is closest to the Spagna metro station. The foot of the Spanish Steps also features another point of attraction, the Fontana della Barcaccia fountain from 1628. The fountain is shaped like a boat and serves as a memorial to the floods in 1598. At night especially, when the fountain is lit, it develops a magical shine. Legend has it that it brings good luck to throw coins in the fountain - but be aware, when there are too many coins in the fountain already, throwing any more in is officially prohibited. Nearby you can find the elegant shopping street, Via Condotti, with its high-end designer stores.
The famous collections in the Villa Borghese
If you travel to the Flaminio metro station, you can walk along to the impressive Villa Borghese park, which today is home to the most valuable private collection of famous artists’ works. Here, you can find pieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Rubens, Raffael and Tizian. Significant precious artworks have been kept at this location since the seventeenth century. It’s important to register for a viewing in a timely manner, as every day only 320 visitors are let in every two hours. The park, measuring five square kilometers that surrounds the Villa Borghese, offers a change of scenery with its animal enclosures. Access is not restricted here - everybody is welcome. It’s not for nothing that the park is therefore one of the most popular green spaces in Rome.
A visit to the Castel Sant’Angelo cannot be missed
With the metro, you can travel straight to Lepanto station, and from there it’s about 15 minutes on foot to find the cylindrical former mausoleum from the year 117 AD. The construction was used as a fortress for more than 2000 years and today is a popular tourist destination. The building’s name derives from the statue of the archangel, Michael, on the roof. When Rome was struck by plague, the archangel presented himself to Pope Gregor I to announce that the epidemic would soon be over. As the illness did indeed subside, the figure on the roof has served as a reminder of this incredible vision from the year 590 AD, and still does today. There is also cause for speculation in the 800-meter-long secret passageway that connects the Castel Sant’Angelo to the Vatican. From the outside, the Passetto di Borgo looks like a wall, but there has been an escape passage hidden inside since the Middle Ages that was used to safely bring Pope Clemens VII, for example, to his refuge - Castel Sant’Angelo.

Rome: Insider Tips for the Italian capital city
The Colosseum, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain - in Rome, the sights are lined up one after the other. Take a stroll through the city to live and breathe history at every corner, dating as far back as more than two millennia. Alongside the well-known highlights, there are also a lot of insider tips that can make a trip to Rome truly unforgettable. An art gallery with pieces on display that are more than 2000 years old is one of them. Piazza Navona, too, the huge square with three fountains is always a favorite for visitors. And there’s probably nothing nicer than letting the day ring out where the locals go to eat of an evening.
Galleria Borghese - Art museum in the middle of a park
At the heart of Rome’s most popular park, the Villa Borghese, you can find an unrivalled collection of art. There are almost 20 rooms over two floors containing paintings, sculptures and relics, largely originating from the time of the Roman Empire. Furthermore, there are also numerous works by Lorenzo Bernini on display, among others. The beautiful park surrounding the Galleria Borghese is perfect for a leisurely walk. You will be best off reserving your tickets a few days in advance, as the museum only admits a limited number of visitors each day.
Piazza Navona - The most beautiful square in the city for many
A bustling life with street cafés artists, and street vendors: Piazza Navona is one of the most well-visited places in Rome. Its shape is reminiscent of the stadium that it once was in the Roman times. Today, it stands for the Baroque side of Rome. Follow in the footsteps of Robert Langdon in Dan Brown’s ‘Angels and Demons’ and ‘The Da Vinci Code’ by exploring the surrounding palaces, the magnificent Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi and the other two fountains. Evenings bring an especially romantic atmosphere thanks to the lighting on the buildings and monuments.
Trastevere: Here, you can experience the real Rome.
Spend an evening in Trastevere, the most popular party neighborhood among locals. From 5:30pm, you can try a famous aperitivo in the neighborhood’s many bars and restaurants. Here, the motto goes: “See and be seen” - and enjoy a Prosecco and a light snack at the same time. A little later, the restaurants in the winding passageways get rather full. This is your chance to experience the exquisite Roman cuisine in a particularly atmospheric setting. On a visit to Trastavere, you can also see the picturesque churches dating back to the Middle Ages and the banks of the Tiber.

Visiting Rome’s restaurants
The main reason for paying a visit to the Italian capital is of course the countless attractions from previous centuries. However, Italian cooking is also world-famous, and it will be worth your while to look for some restaurants where you can acquaint yourself with more than just pizza and pasta. As ever, Italians don’t care much for breakfast, and in turn a warm meal is eaten both at lunchtime and in the evening. During your stay in Rome, you should expect to be able to dine at restaurants between 1pm and 3pm, and from 7:30pm onwards. If you would like to enjoy an evening meal at a particularly popular restaurant, you should reserve a table in advance.
Fish dishes at Quattro Mori
Walk in the footsteps of Cardinal Ratzinger: Pay the Trattoria Quattro Mori a visit, which is a five minute walk from the Vatican. When Pope Benedict XVI was still a cardinal, he visited this restaurant often. You will certainly also enjoy your meal at Quattro Mori, especially if you appreciate Sardinian fish dishes. Among other things, you can enjoy a deliciously-prepared tuna or swordfish steak. We also recommend the dishes containing clams and scallops. You might even visit at the right time to enjoy the Sardinian fish roe, combined superbly with pasta.
Antica Hostaria L'Archeologia – A lovely garden restaurant
The Antica Hostaria L’Archeologia is on one of Rome’s oldest streets, the Via Appia Antica. It is a kind of beer garden that offers sophisticated cuisine. You can sit here in a beautiful setting, surrounded by flowers and fountains, and recover after a sightseeing tour of the city. The menu gives you the option of a meal containing meat, fish and/or mussels. Aside from that, there are also interesting pasta dishes and desserts to discover. The wine list looks like a small book, as it includes wines from all of Italy’s wine regions. You can even order a bottle of wine that is already 20 years old, or older.
Traditional cuisine at Pallatium Enoteca Regionale
Although this combination of a restaurant and a wine bar may look modern and stylish, at Pallatium, you can choose from various original Roman dishes. You can find the Pallatium Enoteca Regionale on Via Frattina, in Rome’s fashion district. It is in exactly this seemingly-conflicting setting that you have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the traditional regional cuisine. The menu ranges from hearty pasta meals to spelt products, right up to roast rabbit. Of course, you can order a wine to accompany each dish you select that goes perfectly with the flavors of the food - preferably from the Latium region.
