We left the Colosseum with Nicole and walked to the entrance of the Roman Forums, where we started our tour of the Ancient Rome.
In just a few minutes we were in the heart of the Ancient Rome, the political and business center of the Eternal City.
This time Nicole suggested we joined her on a tour of the Colosseum. I have to admit I had seen the Flavian Amphitheater - as the Colosseum was originally known – many times before. But this time I looked at it with different eyes.
The Colosseum stands right there, in the historical center of Rome, so incredibly huge and wonderful it's impossible not to notice it.
Among the several number of possible excursions from Rome, we advise you not to miss the site of Ostia Antica.
In this post you’ll have a first glimpse at the amazing remains we encountered during our exploration of the archeological area of Ostia Antica accompanied by our expert and entertaining guide, Nicole.
Let's start from the basic greetings and idiomatic expressions:
“Good morning” is translated with buon giorno: this is the formal expression Italians use with people they jut met or with elderly people in sign of respect.
A more familiar expression to say “good morning” is ciao: this can be used both to say “hi” when we meet someone, or when we are leaving.
“Good evening” is translated with buona sera; again, you can replace this expression with ciao when you know the people you are talking to.
The Vatican city is certainly one of the most interesting and beautiful sites to visit for travelers coming to Rome. We, at Rome is Easy, offer our guests the possibility to experience two different kind of Vatican city tours.

Day 1. Start your itinerary to discover the city of Rome from the stunning Piazza del Popolo (underground stop: Flaminio A line or Red line) and admire the entrance from the ancient Porta Flaminia just as the ancient travelers used to do.
Embark in a pleasant walk along via del Babbuino and reach the famous Spanish Steps. Take a picture on the stairs and admire the Roman daily routine and life.
In December Rome is more beautiful than ever! Enjoy its vibrant atmosphere during Christmas time and spend some time shopping in the small shops and craft studios for decorations and unique items or in some of the many Italian boutiques.
Travelers that are planning to visit Rome often ask us which tour is the best one for their kids. Parents are reasonably concerned with their kids having fun and wonder how they will react to a three hour long tour around the city.
Our answer is quite almost the same: if your are traveling to Rome with kids the Colosseum and Ancient Rome Private Tour is certainly the most suitable one.
A big green heart. This is how Villa Borghese - the most famous garden in Rome - looks like on a city map of Rome. Although just at the third place by extension after Villa Pamphili and Villa Ada, Villa Borghese is for sure the most loved and lively garden in Rome.
Tiber Island has always been surrounded by mystery and legend. The island is a little bit longer than 300 meters and large nearly 90 meters, connected to the Tiber banks by two bridges: the Cestio bridge from the west and the Fabricio bridge from the east.
Tiber Island is boat-shaped and its peculiar form spread the legend that the island rises today in place of a submerged vessel.
