Rome, Italy's cosmopolitan capital, has been a cultural hub for nearly 3,000 years. It's been shaped by influential art, history, and architecture. You can't go far without running into some ancient relic, like the Colosseum or ruins at Palatine Hill. The ancient world awaits you just minutes from your hotel Rome.

If you're an art lover, you will appreciate the works at St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. Take advantage of the shopping in trendy Trastevere, or find a table at a restaurant along the River Tiber. Order some fresh pasta and local wine, and in your downtime enjoy some 'olce far niente' -- the sweetness of doing nothing.

What can I do in Rome after work?

Italians like to eat late, so you most likely won't be sitting down to dinner until 8pm or later. Treat yourself to some classic Italian food, like 'cacio e pepe' -- Romano cheese and fresh black pepper atop pasta. The simplest dishes in Italy are often the best.

Most museums and galleries close in the early evening, but you will not have to wait long in line if you visit the less busy sites late in the day. The Borghese Gallery has one of the most prized art collections in the world, and the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj is a must-visit.

When the sun goes down, head over to the Spanish Steps or the Trevi Fountain. These architectural beauties are even more stunning at night.

Where can business travellers go in Rome?

Rome has plenty of modern amenities. The subway is fast and efficient, and an extensive network of buses make it easy to get back and forth from your hotel. Rome's business district is EUR, home to many large conferences and exhibitions.

While in EUR, be sure to check the Palazzo dei Congressi (congress centre). The dramatic Palazzo della Civiltà di Lavoro is another must-see.

Which places should I visit beyond my hotel in Rome?

Don't pass up an opportunity to visit Michelangelo's famous paintings at the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. The Creation of Adam is one of his finest works.

Spend some time touring the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Learn about gladiators and life in ancient Rome. Hire a guide to take you through the site, and you'll see Rome's glory days come alive.
