Of course, that’s the boring story, invented by scholars to give a factual explanation to the legend and mythology that is irreversibly entwined with Roman history.

If you’ve ever been to Rome before you’ll be familiar with the narrow cobbled streets and marble facades that characterise the central niche of the city between Piazza Venezia and the River Tevere. This lively and picturesque part of town is as Roman as it gets and puts you within easy walking distance of St Peter’s and the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Vittoriano, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, as well as Rome’s finest restaurants and nightspots.


A taxi from Fiumicino Airport costs a fixed price of €40 (£30/$60) before 11pm, after which it’s on the meter. It shouldn’t cost more than about €45-€50. Tourists should be extremely vigilant with Roman taxi drivers, if you feel you’ve been overcharged or intimidated contact the Italian Tourist Board and quote the ID number of the driver.

Alternatively a taxi from Termini Central Train Station, or ideally Spagna Metro Station should cost under €10 (£7.50/$15).
