Since the outbreak of the pandemic, as America’s #1 Travel Radio Show, we’ve chosen to focus our travels domestically to showcase numerous destinations nationwide.  We’ve now reached another phase as we once again also return to a mix of international travel as well.  There are many wonderful locations around the globe to visit, but as the saying goes “all roads lead to Rome” — so that’s exactly where we decided to restart international travel and make our latest stop on RMWorldTravel’s big “Let’s Go America! Tour”…

Rome is a city we’ve enjoyed a dozen times or more, but it’s also a place you never feel you’re finished with as there is so much to enjoy, explore and experience!  During our busy 6-day itinerary we certainly revisited top spots like the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps — but we also added new locales as well.  They included Ostia Antica — Rome’s first colony, a river cruise on the Tiber, strolling Renaissance artist Caravaggio’s neighborhood and more.

Besides all the history and architecture you’ll encounter while in Rome, Italy’s capital is the only Capital in the world that’s home to another country within a country.  Religion plays a big part of daily life in Rome, and it was a national holiday the week of our visit for All Saints Day on November 1st.  Besides the Vatican with St. Peter’s Basilica, Sistine Chapel and Museum that awaits visitors — we also visited countless Cathedrals, Basilicas and churches throughout our stay across the city.

Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore — one of the 4 papal basilicas in Rome and where the Pope prays before he travels — is located in the Monti District.  That’s where we based ourselves, at an all-new boutique property adjacent to the Argentinian Embassy — the Rome Monti Hotel.  This hotel is aligned with Hilton via their DoubleTree brand and it’s unlike any DoubleTree you’ll find in America.  It’s also where we broadcasted America’s #1 Travel Radio Show from live on 5 November 2022.

During what we call the “Fastest 2 Hours in Travel” — we covered many of the places we visited during the week, we also talked food, shopping, art, culture, Italian cinema, gladiators, day tripping from Rome, how the city is rebounding from the pandemic, their new Prime Minister and so much more…
