Homeland of the ancients, Rome brims with historical ruins and intrigue. Curious travellers could spend days here flitting from Renaissance chapels to splashing centuries-old fountains. It’s not all coliseums, catacombs and cosseting boutique hotels however: the Italian capital’s hole-in-the-wall trattorias and family-run gelaterias will ensure you don’t leave the city hungry.
Italians tend to dine late, so don’t be surprised if the bars don’t fill up before 10pm. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to late-night haunts. Try to squeeze in a visit to Il Goccetto, an authentic wine bar in a former medieval bishop’s house serving delicious vino rosso.
