Rome is a city for the senses – filled with sound, colour, aromas and incredible sights. From the original Roman port and fortress that meet you as you sail into Civitavecchia to the spectacular Colosseum, Rome is immersed in history and tradition. Nicknamed Caput Mundi – the capital of the world – the historic past of this city blends with modern life, resulting in a city where you can walk in moments from ancient ruins and world heritage sites to stylish bars and excellent restaurants. A luxury charter yacht vacation to Rome is the ideal starting point to sail South through the warm waters and gentle tides of the Lazio region.
Key Cruising Areas: The Lazio coast heading south from Rome has all the essential elements of a yachting holiday – stunning scenery, gentle tides and warm beaches with crystal clear waters. The nearby villages provide many options for day trips or longer sails.
Don’t Miss: Rome is filled with iconic historic sights, but a visit would not be complete without seeing the Fontana di Trevi. Walk through the city in the evening to see the fountain lit up in the warm Italian night, then toss a coin over your shoulder into the water and legend has it you will return to Rome one day. Pick up a gelato at Il Gelato di San Crispino to complete your night.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Food is a huge part of Italian life, and nowhere less so than in the capital. Here you can find everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to traditional pizzerias filled with the raucous energy of hot-blooded locals. For an incredible sample of Italy’s finest flavours, book a table at Ristorante Life in the historic town centre, and order the black truffle tasting menu.
Local Culture: In Rome you will be greeted by incredible historic architecture, iconic sites and ancient landmarks at every turn, from the Pantheon to the Vatican Museums. For an incredible sight, visit the Sistine Chapel – talking or photography is not allowed within the chapel, allowing you to become completely immersed in the incredible art.
Best Beach: The clear water and beautiful beach of Sperlonga are a short sail from Rome. A wonderful secret of Italy, if the beach is not enough you cannot fail to be besotted by the charming town of pristine white buildings punctuated by bursts of bright bougainvillea.
IYC recommends: Stop in at the rooftop bar of the Hotel Indigo for an aperitivo. Situated in one of the most exclusive streets of Rome, take in the sensational views of St Peter’s basilica, Castel Sant'Angelo and the Vittoriano, as the sounds of jazz float up from the band on the 6th floor.
