Groupon’s Guide To Rome
From famous historic sites to relatively obscure catacombs, basilicas, fountains and museums, the Eternal City has many things to offer, as historic landmarks go hand in hand with the vibrant city nightlife.
Passing through old cobblestone streets and ruins, visitors can catch a glimpse of Rome’s main attractions such as the Pantheon, one of the best kept classical architecture buildings in the world, the iconic Trevi Fountain and the Vatican Museums. Sweeping views over the city can be captured on film and camera from the Spanish Steps, where holidaymakers can unwind over a prosciutto panini or a gelato after a day of exploring numerous shopping centres and bazaars. Nestled beneath the Vatican walls, the Prati district mixes elegant office buildings with high-end boutiques and public squares, while imposing military barracks and Museo delle Anime dei Defunti provides a unique experience. Tourists can also get a taste of a typical Italian night out by visiting local restaurants, bars and clubs and enjoying a classic pizza or pasta.
Groupon’s Guide To Florence
Florence is a treasure trove of art and architecture, with numerous museums and galleries. Considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, the Tuscan capital is sprinkled with terracotta and ancient Carrara marble, as well as grand buildings and monuments that proudly stake their claim for admiration. Boasting vast iron and glass structure, Piazza San Lorenzo is one of the most authentic covered market places in Florence, with fruit and veg stalls, Tuscan trinket sellers, and historic restaurants. Masterpieces of modern fashion come in plenty on Florence’s hip Via dei Calzaiuoli and Via de Tornabuoni, which boast high-end boutiques, filled with haute couture pieces. After long days of traditional dining and market strolling, visitors can head to the Piazza Michelangelo for sunset shots, live music and Italian atmosphere at its finest.
Groupon’s Guide To Venice
The capital of the Veneto region, listed as a World Heritage Site, Venice is set on a group of 118 small islands separated by a labyrinth of canals and linked by century-old bridges. Colonnaded squares, domes and arches can be seen while on a sleek motorboat or during a gondola ride that will carry visitors through the city’s main waterways.
Tourists shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to visit the Doge’s Palace, a symbol of the republic’s wealth and mastery over land and sea. On the eastern end of St. Mark’s Square, the world-renowned Byzantine basilica has become a landmark of the city with its four bulbous domes and golden mosaics. Throughout the cobbled streets, there are countless shops where travellers can pick out unique handmade masks painted according to the 800-year-old Venetian tradition.
