The Best Things in Life Are Free

August 22, 2011 Carlino's Restaurant no comments

The Romantic Vacation for Two to Italy sponsored by Carlino’s includes a free tour of the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica, but many churches in Rome exhibit major works by art masters you know, and they usually do not charge any fee to get in.

“One of the best things that can happen to you when you’re traveling is when you find a free hidden treasure that’s not in any of the guidebooks. ”

For example, San Pietro in Vincoli has Michelangelo’s spectacular statue of Moses, and you can visit Santa Maria del Popolo to view their two Caravaggio paintings. Also, consider making a special trip to Santa Maria della Vittoria to view Bernini’s “St. Teresa in Ecstasy.”

If you’re looking to relax in a reasonably peaceful sanctuary, the Trastevere neighborhood during the day should be at the top of your list. Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the city’s oldest churches, and San Luigi dei Francesi has three Caravaggios. Also, take in the charming and delightful Santa Maria alla Minerva, the only Gothic church in Rome. While you’re there, stroll the ancient cobble stone streets which are mostly car-free, and choose from one of the excellent restaurants that offer some of the cheapest food you’ll find in all of Rome.

After dark, Trastevere becomes the go-to place for young locals and travelers alike, so it transforms into a great place.  Stop off at a local café to sip a cappuccino, relax and lose yourself in the wonders of Rome.
