Many people know Rome as the Eternal City. The Ancient City is a mixture of rich cultural heritage and modern life. Few other places in the world can offer a mixed grill menu of history, architecture and modern urban lifestyle as Rome does. Rome offers not only an opportunity to enjoy hip life but well-packaged fun too. If this is your first time to visit, you can find great things to do in Rome that you and your group will surely enjoy.
A Tour of the Ancient World
If all you want is to kiss the past, you have to visit famous historic sites in Rome. Tourists can see awe-inspiring monuments every side they look! Here are some places you must not miss:
• The Roman Forum: The forum is a magnificent piece of ancient architecture. The place was originally a marsh but the Romans cleared the water to construct a centre of politics, economics and religion.
• Colosseum: The ancient amphitheatre built around 70AD still stands majestically today. A visit to the Colosseum where more than 87,000 Romans could watch gladiators wrestle with wild animals is an enjoyable experience.
• Fountain de Trevi: The wonderful artistic design by architect Nicola Salvi shows the Neptun (God of the sea). A hipster can always say “I have been to the Trevi Fountain” when other people talk about the world famous construction.
The hip life tour may as well extend to the Vatican museums. You may even bump into the Pope as you see the frescoes that Michelangelo painted. Many would say an adventure trip in Rome is happiest when tourists take bike or scooter tours.
Hip Life in Rome
Rome is the place to go if all you want is to enjoy a crazy nightlife. Some tourists describe Rome as pretty wild because there are many bars where European and American tourist drink on terraces. It feels great to sit on the patio, gaze into the well-lighted city streets while sipping exquisite Italian wine. Some Romans and tourists flaunt gay lifestyle with abandon in many clubs. Young tourists need not be gay to visit the homosexual clubs.
Other popular tourist places include Trastevere because it is crowded and buoyant especially on the weekends. Young people go to Trastevere for fun, cheap food, and to drink beer on the bridges. Indie rock nights are a standard lifestyle in this locality.
At San Lorenzo, a hipster tourist can meet trendy university students in clubs. Pigneto is a hotspot for classy bars. Maddona dei Monti and Campo de Fiori are cool places to hang out at night. These hipster areas can provide all the cheap beer, fashion items and fun that hipsters want.
