Get off the beaten track and check out these FIVE SECRET things to see and do in one of the most fascinating and gorgeous cities in all of Europe:
- San Paolo Fuori le Mura – Via Ostiense, 190
- Yes, St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican is gorgeous but this basilica, near my current neighborhood, is one of the largest churches in the WORLD and one of the most breathtakingly beautiful to boot.
- Bar Pompi – Via della Croce
- The bakery where all the locals go, Bar Pompi boasts some of the most scrumptious pastries and gelato you could ever ask for.
- Villa Borghese
- Rent a bicycle on a sunny day and ride around the most central park in Rome, with vast and lush greenery and every kind of fountain you could ever imagine.
- Borromini’s Perspective
- One of my students suggested this bizarre and unique site in Rome – located in Galleria Spada, this masterpiece is pure magic. Borromini’s corridor looks as if it stretched for miles and miles, but is actually an optical illusion achieved through a gradually rising floor, a gradually low ceiling and joining walls.
- Porta Portese Market – Via Portuense
- Every Sunday morning this Roman flea market is in full swing. You can find all sorts of kitchen gadgets and trinkets, not to mention all of the fantastic people watching.
So there you have it! FIVE Unique things to see and do in the eternal city. Change your life and your career with the ONLY Trinity CertTESOL Course in Rome – work and live like a local in one of the most amazing and beautiful cities in the world.
