Rome Business Travel Guide - - ROME - Writer: Phoebe Calver

ome is a city of un­ri­valled his­tory, span­ning more than 2,500 years - with the site of the city be­ing in­hab­ited for much longer - mak­ing it one of the old­est con­tin­u­ously oc­cu­pied sites in Europe.

When tak­ing a busi­ness trip to Rome, you will quickly dis­cover it is as much about soak­ing up the vi­brant lifestyle as it is en­joy­ing the end­less ar­ray of art and cul­ture on of­fer from this in­cred­i­ble city.

It is the per­fect city for a busy sched­ule. With sur­prises lo­cated around ev­ery cor­ner you can eas­ily find your­self ex­plor­ing pic­turesque streets, or watch­ing the world go by in the end­less ar­ray of street-side cafes. Rome’s busy streets will pro­vide the ideal - if sur­pris­ingly so - respite, par­tic­u­larly af­ter a long and busy day. The City will pro­vide you with end­less sources of en­ter­tain­ment, and for those of you self-pro­claimed his­tory lovers; you can eas­ily stum­ble across ar­eas in which leg­endary events have taken place.

Of course, Rome is par­tic­u­larly fa­mous for its spec­tac­u­lar ar­chi­tec­ture, which is in­cred­i­bly hard to miss when roam­ing the streets of the city. For quite some pe­riod of time, Rome was one of the world’s main epi­cen­tres of clas­si­cal ar­chi­tec­ture, af­ter de­vel­op­ing new forms such as the arch, dome and vault.

Rome is the city of al fresco din­ing, mak­ing it so much eas­ier for you to max­imise your evenings and en­joy soak­ing up the at­mos­phere; with such in­cred­i­ble food avail­able - par­tic­u­larly the lo­cal favourite of thin, crispy piz­zas and au­then­tic pas­tas - you’ll be spoilt for choice.
