Rome is one of my favorite European cities, there are endless things to do and see among its ancient ruins. This post is a good place to start, with ideas from Carla Jones on how to best enjoy your time in Rome!
List of Unique Activities in The Eternal City
“When in Rome, do as the Roman’s do.” That phrase may mean something else, but why don’t we do it literally? Despite the busy schedule, the ancient Romans find time to have fun in their own unique way. In an article published by BBC, it says there that the Romans enjoyed watching fights between gladiators and animals. Roman emperors also hosts free shows and these are held in the theatres and amphitheatres located all over the city. As years go by, Romans have found other ways to have fun and here are some of them:
Bingo the Italian Way
Since bingo originated from Italy, then it is a must to play this game just like the Italians do. Known for their love for the good life, the Dubai Palace is the perfect place to play luxury bingo games. The Italians are also fond of traveling and if you want to play bingo on the high seas, there are bingo cruises available. A few years ago, lucky winners of FoxyBingo had a chance to spend seven nights on Voyager of the Seas – with stopovers in Rome, Naples, Marseille, Nice, and Livorno before finishing off the cruise in Barcelona.
Fight Like a Gladiator
Do you think you can perform better than Russel Crowe in his role at the blockbuster movie “Gladiator”? This is your chance to train like a real gladiator – and learn the basics of hand-to-hand combat and how to use authentic weapons. The Roman History Group, who is known for re-enacting combat scenes and the life of the gladiators, organizes lessons for those who are interested in learning more about these brave Roman fighters.
Tired of walking? Hop on a Segway, which is a personal electric transportation that is usually used by patrollers, to get around Rome. This is so easy to use because all you have to do is stand up and lean towards left or right to maneuver the Segway. You can find different tours at Rome by Segway including the Imperial, Trastevere, and Antique Appian.
