When in Rome, you may as well tick a few places off of your bucket list! The beauty of this city is that several of the world’s most important landmarks and beautiful artifacts are held within walking distance of each other, meaning you are guaranteed to see a variety of Rome’s top attractions no matter how long you’re staying in the city.
Italy has produced some of the most influential artists in history, and many of their key pieces are held in Rome. In the Vatican Museum you can see the phenomenal Sistine Chapel ceiling by altar wall Michelangelo, and the Stanze di Raffaello by Raphael. In the Galleria Borghese you will find Bernini’s most impressive work, including David, Apollo and Daphne and Truth Unveiled by Time, and in the Capitoline Museums, Romulus and Remus by Peter Paul Rubens.
When ordering a coffee in Rome, it’s important to know what it is you’re ordering! Many Italian words are used in commercial coffee stores in Ireland, though they may have a different meaning in Italy. For example, a café in Rome is called a bar, as café means coffee in Italian, and asking for a latte may get you a glass of milk!

Shopping in Rome is a must, and with such an impressive range of shops you may want to bring an extra suitcase! Shopping hours are generally from 9:30/10:00 - 19:30/20:00 with a 2 to 3 hour lunch break. Shops are traditionally closed on Saturday afternoon, all day Sunday, and Monday morning. Times may vary closer to the city centre, so make sure to check online before you go!
At the base of the Spanish Steps is the Piazza di Spagna, which was famously featured in the movie Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn in 1953. This square is home to various Italian landmarks including the 19th century Column of the Immaculate Conception, the former house of the English poet John Keats, the Victorian Babington’s Tea Room and the Fontana della Barcaccia commissioned by Pope Urban VIII and completed in 1627-1629. Stretching out from the square are some of the most prestigious shopping streets in Rome, where you will find both luxury and high-end brands.
It may seem strange, but one of the hippest urban areas in Rome is actually located in one of the city’s oldest villages. Dating back almost 3000 years, Monti has become one of the most popular areas with tourists to find handmade crafts, vintage shops, clothing, and antique dealers.
Within walking distance of the Sistine chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica is Prati, a surprisingly uncrowded shopping and dining area in Rome. Along with dozens of wine bars, restaurants, and live music venues, Prati is also home to an excellent selection of high-end stores stocking both Italian and global brands.
