The Obvious (and Not So Obvious) Must-List for Rome

Monday, May 16th, 2016

The capital of Italy and a wonder of the Ancient World, Rome deserves to be marveled at.  With its rich history, sensational cuisine, and breathtaking scenery, Rome is at the top of bucket lists around the world, and there are so many reasons why.

Historical Sites

One of the most unique things about Rome is the way that old and new, ancient and modern, are constantly interacting with one another.  Some locals still give directions by referring to places as either inside or outside of “the walls”, referencing the ancient walls built by emperors who lived centuries before us, which are still standing today.  Common attractions like the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Pantheon may seem touristy and overpopulated, but they’re so popular because they are ceaselessly breathtaking.  The sheer enormity of the Colosseum, the views from the top of Palatine Hill, and the delicate perfection of the Pantheon all make for a beautiful day of sight-seeing in Rome.

The Vatican

Though technically its own country, the Vatican is a must-see destination if you’re traveling in Italy.  Thousands of people, both religious and secular, visit the Vatican every day either to pay respect to the Pope or simply to observe its beauty and grandeur.  It may seem daunting to see so many people rushing into what is essentially one large building, but the wait is worth it.  Visitors cannot only experience the intensity St. Peter’s Basilica, but can bask in the tranquility of the Sistine Chapel, observing the finest of Michelangelo’s works.


Tasting the best food that Italy has to offer isn’t difficult because delicious food is all around you.  Of course one has to try the classics: pasta, pizza, gelato, the list goes on, but what about cooking the food for yourself?  It may seem too good to be true, but Italian locals are actually willing to teach tourists how to cook their food!  A quick internet search can yield great results when trying to find a chef to apprentice, and the best part is that they’ll welcome you inside their home with open arms.  What better way to experience the freshest, most authentic Italian food than to have a hand in making it?

There are so many amazing things to do in Rome that it can seem daunting to try to plan a trip for yourself.  Especially if you’re traveling alone, making decisions about what to see and what to do can be tricky, so let us do it for you!  Book your tour to Italy today and join a group of fabulous women just like you who are ready for their Italian adventure.

Women Return from Their Adventure to Rome

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

When you travel with Women Traveling the World, you will have the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful and historical places around the globe. While our trip to Greece was amazing and unforgettable, our recent trip to Italy may have just surpassed it. The great part about our travels is that while we’re on a women’s getaway vacation, we’re still absorbing so much culture.

Traveling Group in Rome Enjoying Italy

During our trip to Italy, we were treated to unforgettable, private tours of both the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel during our stay in Rome. We also had the opportunity to see the historical Coliseum, and the Trevi Fountain – safe to say that a few of us threw in a coin for good luck, but in the traditional way, which is with your right hand over your left shoulder.

Getting to See the Sights of Italy


After our adventures in Rome, we traveled to the Amalfi Coast – which is slightly further South – where we saw some of the most breathtaking views imaginable. During our stay along the coast, we visited three amazing towns:

  • Positano
  • Amalfi
  • Rovello

Discovering the Historic City of Pompeii

As a travel group for singles, we even had some time to visit the historic city of Pompeii, which was truly a surreal site to actually see, and we also has an opportunity to learn about the cities unique history, from its colonization to its ultimate destruction.

Following our stay on the Amalfi Coast, we took a trip to island of Capri, where we were treated to gelato – which you can’t get anywhere better than in Italy – and a pizza making class. After some more sightseeing, and walks through the stunning gardens, our trip came to an end. Once we returned back to the states, it was time to start planning our next adventure!
