Located in the heart of Italy is Rome, one of the oldest cities in Europe at 2,500 years old. With an incomparable historical and cultural heritage, the city attracts millions of visitors every year. Faced with the significant flow of tourists, the air taxi service has proven to be an attractive option for those who want an exclusive and personalized transport to the “Eternal City”.
What to do in Rome
Rome, the capital of Italy, is a city filled with history, culture and architectural wonders. There are a myriad of activities and sights to explore. One of the main attractions is the Colosseum, an iconic Roman amphitheater that dates back to the 1st century AD.
To appreciate the authentic Roman atmosphere, a visit to the Trevi Fountain is a must. This iconic water fountain, immortalized in films such as “La Dolce Vita”, is one of the most photogenic spots in the city. Throwing a coin in its waters is a tradition to bring luck and guarantee the return to the city.
