A Roman Scoop: A Travel Guide to the Eternal City


A Roman Scoop: 3 Days in Rome

Join us on a tour through this exciting city full of sexy history.


Last but not least, we couldn’t leave Italy’s capital without visiting The Colosseum, quite possibly the most iconic symbol of Rome. We took turns posing alongside gigantic, fallen pillars and decaying stone stumps, all the while trying to fathom the deep history of the stunning arena.

A Roman Scoop: 3 Days in Rome

The Colosseum, Rome

The shockingly well-preserved amphitheater is a testament to the Roman Empire’s love for public spectacles, as it was once the site of bloody gladiator fights and epic chariot races. These days, it simply serves as the city’s greatest tourist attraction (alongside its “brother,” The Roman Forum).

In short, our time in the Eternal City was rich, ephemeral, and sweet—quite like a delectable serving of gelato. A vibrant place brimming with culture and diversity, Rome very much invigorated our spirits, making us wish, long after we’d gone, that we could have just one more scoop.

    My department is having a trip going to Rome! We are very excited because we are all first-timers. Rome is one of my dream destinations, and I am happy that my department has given a chance to visit Rome.

    Arrived in Florence from Rome just in time for lunch! I think Florence is perfect for people who want peace.

    Can’t wait for my Rome trip, so I can have my friends reenact The Lizzie McGuire Movie, and When In Rome starring the Olsen Twins. LOL

    I am keen to do a trip to Rome, and around later this year. Could you send me a link to the itinerary for your incredible trips? I’d love to get some ideas of where to go.

    If there is just one thing I have taken from my trip to Rome, it is, that the locals DO NOT stop for the “green man” or at zebra crossings. Hahaha!!!

    The Trevi Fountain is what I remember when we visit Rome. I was amazed when I see the fountain with my own eyes. It’s a must see! I highly recommend this place.

    Fantastic 4 days in Rome spent with Sophie, now at the airport waiting to fly home to LGW. A truly memorable and fantastic trip. Looking forward to my next visit here.

    Whenever I hear Rome, I remember my ex-lover who brought me there. It was a perfect night for us, he even proposed to me, but I was too young that time. He is my great love.

    I am crying right now. I miss living in Florence. I lived there for four years because I studied there. It’s true, the stores are closing too early, but the place is very quiet, and relaxing.

    My wife’s dream is to have dinner at Italy, but the expense is too much. I am working very hard to make her dream come true. I wish I can take her to Rome by next year.

      What a loving husband. I think they have package tours in Rome? Never been in Rome, but mostly they have package deals.
