Rome city breaks

City breaks to Rome have your name written all over them... From the Ancient Romans to the Renaissance, Rome’s played a starring role in many mega moments in time. Walk in the footsteps of Emperors at the magnificent marble Pantheon and see where gladiators once fought at the captivating Colosseum one minute, then sip Negronis like a Fellini film star on a rooftop bar the next. No trip to this iconic city would be complete without swinging by the Trevi Fountain to make a wish, and let’s not forget the outstanding Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. As for the shopping, that’s sensational too. Throw in leafy parks, bustling piazzas and old-school coffee shops on every corner to top it all off. When evening falls, call by ivy-clad Trastevere for buzzy bars and the best pizza bianca in town.

Be transported back in time to the days of Gladiator when you visit Rome’s epic monuments. Go to the Colosseum and imagine what it was like standing in the arena and hearing the roar of the crowd. Or follow in Julius Caesar’s tracks when you stroll around the magnificent marble Pantheon and Roman Forum.

Sightseeing

From the awe-inspiring setting of St Peter’s Basilica to the iconic sight of the Colosseum dominating the skyline, there's nothing quite like the culture-rich experience of Rome. While a short weekend break might not be enough to see it all, a Rome city break gives you a glimpse into the glorious golden age of classical Rome and the Vatican City with the Sistine Chapel. So enjoy a slice of life at the fabulous restaurants in the original 'City of Love'.

Eating and drinking
The quieter, less travelled streets of the Trastevere district allow you to try Roman delicacies such as bruschetta and spaghetti carbonara in atmospheric surroundings. You’ll also find fine dining restaurants clustered around the Via Nazionale and Via Veneto, serving delights like the crisp white wines of Lazio and artichokes soaked in fragrant olive oil.

Shopping
A classy shopping destination, Rome’s most upmarket area for fashion is the Piazza Spagna at the foot of the Spanish Steps. Via del Corso is also a central street featuring international brands in the historic centre of Rome. Alternatively, Campo de Fiore is the city’s oldest market, offering an array of fresh produce and souvenirs.

Getting around
One of the best ways to get around Rome is to simply walk, as there’s so much to see as you go from one sight to another. But Rome’s Metropolitana system is well developed and travels around all of the main sights too. It’s well worth considering a Roma Pass – this includes free admission to attractions, along with access to public transport. You can also hop on the city’s electric buses, with six different tramlines to take you through the narrow streets.
