For a city break, Rome the capital city of Italy is hard to beat. The fact that people have been living there continuously for nearly 2,800 years means that the city has a long and particularly rich history. Fortunately, it’s also a city that has been relatively well-preserved. Today, you can visit a number of the historic buildings like the Colosseum, which is nearly 2,000 years old. As you will see, many of these ancient structures are far from defunct. Some of them are still in use, something that creates the chance for tourists to enjoy some truly unique experiences when they visit the city. Here are just a few examples:
See an opera in the Baths of Caracalla
If you want to visit the Baths of Caracalla, why not wait until the evening. During the warmer months, firms like Rome Opera Tickets offer you the chance to enjoy an opera performance in this unique and enchanting venue. This really is a magical experience and one that you will not forget.
Attend an event at the Colosseum
Every few months, the city of Rome hosts special events inside the ancient Colosseum. Their content varies greatly, but, they are always interesting and it is hard not to be impressed when you are inside this venue. If you get the chance to, attend one of the multimedia events. These are particularly impressive.
Enjoy a concert in one of Rome’s old churches

Music in Capuchins Crypt
You can combine a tour of the Capuchins Crypt with a musical experience. The type of music performed varies. Do your best to attend one of the Gregorian chant concerts. This style of music is very fitting for the venue. Plus, you are unlikely to be able to experience this style of music in many other places.
Eat in an old church
If you like to eat in unusual places, you are likely to enjoy eating at the Sacro e Profano 11 in Via Dei Maroniti. This restaurant is located in an old church, which dates back to the 10th century. Before you go, it makes sense to check out the menu and the reviews to make sure that the food will be to your taste.
Take some behind the scene tours
A good way to get a different take on Rome’s ancient and important buildings is to book yourself a “behind the scenes” tour. There are several available. Amongst the best is the Vatican tour. The dungeons of the Colosseum are also very interesting. If you find that tickets for these tours have sold out, consider booking yourself a private tour guide. But, before you buy your ticket ring the guide to make sure they are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. You want to book someone who is going to show you the things you could otherwise miss. The best way to do this is to actually speak directly to them rather than simply filling out a form online.
