The Eternal City
Go back in time, as history comes to life in Rome. Head to the Colosseum to learn about the life of a gladiator, and follow in Caesar’s footsteps around the Roman Forum and Pantheon. Check out the Trevi Fountain, or even travel 30km to visit the ruins of Ostia.
When in Rome
Whatever you do, it’s well worth visiting the Vatican City, the world’s smallest state. Its museum has a treasure trove of ancient Roman and Renaissance riches, culminating in the stunning Sistine Chapel. Don’t miss an opportunity to try some of the tastiest wood-fired pizzas in the city, and scoops of fruity gelato go down a treat as well.
Get away in winter
Some of our UK bases offer flights to Rome throughout winter, so you can wrap up in your woollens and see the city’s spoils with a frosty hue. How does Christmas in Rome sound? There might even be some festive events and market stalls while you’re there.
