In addition to traditional tourist spots like Piazza di Spagna, Piazza Navona, the Coliseum, Saint Peter’s, Castel Sant’Angelo and the Vatican Museums with the extraordinary Sistine Chapel with frescoes painted by Michelangelo, you also won’t want to miss Rome as seen from the Tiber River, and the Maxxi, the architecture museum designed by Zaha Hadid. Then you’ll want to take a walk and listen to the locals speak the Roman dialect, and visit the old trattorias with their traditional dishes like spaghetti alla carbonara, lamb chops, puntarelle with anchovies, carciofi alla giudia and oxtail soup.
Outside the gates of La Posta Vecchia, it’s just a short drive to Cerveteri, one of the most important Etruscan cities of the 8th century BC. In the necropolis, the monumental tombs, unlike no other in the world, have walls frescoed with surprising paintings that are perfectly preserved. In the city, you can visit the ruins of the Etruscan walls, the Medieval walls, and the 16th-century Palazzo Ruspoli. Lago di Bracciano is also nearby, dominated by the imposing medieval Castello Odescalchi, and the Ostia Antica with naval offices, bars and inns built between the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC. Those willing to go a bit further afield can visit the Etruscan cities of Tarquinia and Tuscania. The Roman villa of Emperor Hadrian and the Renaissance Villa of Cardinal d'Este are worth seeing in Tivoli, 30 kilometres east of Rome. Hadrian’s residence is composed of various pavilions scattered among lakes and columns, with hot springs, libraries, theatres and a small island for solitary contemplation.
