Explore the riches of the Eternal City
The term ‘living museum’ must have been invented for Rome. Wherever go you in the Eternal City, you walk on 2,700 years of history. Rome city breaks offer a heady blend of artistic and architectural masterpieces, classical ruins and extravagant Baroque churches and piazzas.
Countless political, cultural, and spiritual luminaries have all left their mark on Rome, from Julius Caesar and Nero to Napoleon and Mussolini. Feel history come alive as you stroll through the Forum and the Colosseum, before being mesmerised by the ornate interior of the Pantheon. When you’ve seen the Vatican, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, relax in the cool greenery of the Villa Borghese gardens. Head south of the river to Trastevere, one of Rome’s most authentic districts and home to its liveliest restaurants and bars. Don’t miss the daily morning market at the Campo de’ Fiori, where the fresh produce on display gives you a tantalising taste of Rome’s culinary temptations.
