Discover the Romance of Rome

Boasting stunning sights, jaw-dropping history and arguably some of the most delicious food in the world – what more could you ask for on your holidays to Rome?

Italy’s capital city serves as a fantastic destination for all ages and tastes – whether you’re there for the stunning historical landmarks or simply to sample the delectable pizza that can be found so readily available on its streets. While Rome provides a great choice for families with its myriad of fascinating historical sights and things to do, it is also favoured as one of the most romantic destinations in the world. With picture-perfect views and traditional Italian restaurants, there is no better place to whisk your loved-one away than on a last-minute Rome City break.

The Eternal City

There are many experiences to be had and a plethora of sights to explore on your Rome holidays, with each area of the city offering something unique to your trip. From chic boutique hotels to city-centre rooms, you’re sure to find somewhere to stay in this vibrant city.

The Modern Centre is where you’ll find some of the finest 5-star hotels to kick back and relax in – offering the ideal place for city breaks –with the Via Veneto providing plenty of spots to indulge in some retail therapy or linger over a cappuccino in a street side café.

Culture vultures should opt to stay in the heart of ancient Rome in Colosseo. With the spectacular backdrop of the Colosseum, the Imperial and the Markets of Trajan as well as a whole host of museums, this is the perfect place to stay if you‘re looking for a history lesson.

Alternatively, for a spot of romance, revel in the never-ending delights of Old Rome. This Renaissance-style architecture is adorned with beautiful squares and striking cathedrals, not to mention the iconic Pantheon.

Somewhere Old, Something New

From the lasting landmarks of Ancient Rome to the spectacular Baroque architecture littered throughout the city, Rome is a setting of rich history and fascinating culture. Art-lovers and history buffs will revel in the various museums and art galleries to explore, while there are plenty of iconic features to experience – so don’t forget your camera.

The Roman Forum is a must-visit, with the striking silhouette of architectural fragments providing a grand reminder of how this site was used for triumphal processions and elections. Immerse yourself in the bygone days of Rome with a visit to the magnificent Colosseum and the Spanish Steps or experience the intricate religious paintings found in the Vatican Museums. Don’t forget to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain – legend dictates that by doing this, one day you will return to Rome.

Of course, holidays in Rome are renowned for the deliciously mouth-watering cuisine on offer. From family-run trattorias and pizzerias to chic restaurants oozing with style, you’ll never have to worry about what to eat in the city. An Italian staple is the humble pasta – from carbonara to spaghetti ajo e ojo, a mix of olive oil, garlic and chilli pepper, there are plenty of restaurants that throw their doors wide open and serve up some great hearty fare come evening time.

After all that sightseeing, you’re likely to crave something to cool you down and here is where you’ll discover the wonders of traditional Italian gelatarias. Meander your way through the city’s cobbled streets and you’re sure to find a small shop offering the finest gelato you’ve ever tasted – with every flavour from vanilla to gorgonzola.

If it is nightlife you’re craving, you’re more likely to find a laid-back pace on your Rome holidays. Long evenings unwinding in a piazza or moonlit strolls over the Tiber are the order of the day here. You’ll find plenty of bars in the city centre offering ideal spots for people-watching, while the Piazza Navona is an excellent place for an evening out while the area of Testataccio is a must for clubbers.

Romance

Rome is the perfect place to take in with a loved one. Spend your days wandering hand in hand across cobbled streets, leading to beautiful churches and street cafes, opening up onto piazzas where you can stop and take in some of the sunshine sparking through the rooftops. After a day spent discovering the historic and captivating city, spend your evening on a rooftop enjoying a candlelit meal for two and then head back to a five star hotel.

Food in the City

You can eat like a king or queen in Rome, thanks to its delicious food. Whether you want to find some cheap bites or you wish to enjoy an elegant meal in a fine restaurant, you will find something to tickle your taste buds. Seek out the trattorias that the locals visit for some truly authentic meals such as chicory salad, spaghetti and carbonara, sautéed veal, oxtail stew and, of course, pizza. Top it all off with a rich ice cream from a gelateria and you will be wanting to eat there forever.

Nightlife

Testaccio is a popular place for nightlife, and is where you can find street parties on the weekends, which are great for soaking up the Roman atmosphere. Many areas offer al fresco parties such as these, as it is very much part of the Romans culture to enjoy the outdoors. Tag along on an organised tour, such as The Colosseum Pub Crawl to visit the best drinking venues, or head to a club with a dance floor to spend the night partying away.
