For years, lovers have visited the Trevi Fountain and hopefully thrown in a coin hoping for a lifetime of love and to return to Rome together. The fountain itself is an extravagant display of spouting piscine scenes carved from smooth, cold travertine. Find yourself a spot, hold hands and people watch.
Every Wednesday, his holiness The Pope gives audience within the Sala Nervi an audience hall at the Vatican. While you can expect to join throngs of devotees and tourists, it still manages to be a touching experience in this eternal place.
The quirky and individual boutique centre of Arsenale is the place to find bohemian and pre loved clothes. A designer’s delight, the window displays in this place are actually quite unbelievable at times.

A heavenly, three pronged sensory attack on your taste, smell and sight.
