Peter’s pictures and postcards, seeing these places with your own eyes exceeds all your expectations.
In Rome, almost all architectural styles combine from ancient, medieval, renaissance and baroque to modern modern buildings. Surprisingly, all of this was combined in incredible harmony. You will definitely not experience this combination anywhere else.
Rome has always been a city of water. This is reflected in the ubiquitous beautiful fountains, which can be found in Rome over 1,000. Fountains in Rome are magnificent sculptures. The most famous and most visited is the Trevi Fountain, which is considered a symbol of the city. Last year alone, tourists threw more than 36 million crowns into it.

Italian cuisine is loved by the world, but few people realize that each region of Italy has its own unique dishes. Rome excels in the perfect preparation of “no red sauce” pasta (especially amatriciana, carbonara, gricia and cacio e pepe) and is renowned for its extra-thin pizza. Local cuisine has a Jewish influence, so you will find dishes rich in artichokes, zucchini and anchovies. Whether you choose a luxury restaurant or a street stall, count on quality and fresh ingredients to please your taste buds.
