Although Rome is a city with enough attractions to keep you busy for months, many travellers choose to tour the capital’s surrounding areas. Pompeii, Herculaneum, Tivoli and Florence make for a very worthwhile visit.
Ostia Antica was one of the most thriving Roman cities thanks to its status as a major port and commercial centre. It has been buried for more than 10 centuries.
If there’s one trip that’s even more popular than those above, it’s Florence, the Italian capital of art. The most comfortable way to get to Florence from Rome is to take any of the trains that connect the two cities.
