Regarded as one of the world’s most fascinating, important and beautiful ancient cities, Rome is Italy’s capital and largest city. It’s difficult to overstate Rome’s influence on language, art, architecture, law and government in the western world, and has long been considered the heart of Western civilisation and Christianity. Housing some of the world’s most famous historical sites and revered works of art, Rome city breaks are ideal for anyone interested in culture.
Rome city breaks are best enjoyed on foot. Get lost in the narrow streets, take five on the grass in one of the gardens, refresh with a scoop of gelato or perk up with an espresso; if you’re there for a long weekend, you’re going to need some stamina!
Rome’s history isn’t hidden behind museum glass, it’s on every street. Walking the city, you’ll be walking in the footprints of history – of the conception of western culture as we know it today. The Colosseum, Roman Forum, the Pantheon and the Vatican are all centres of civilisation, entertainment, politics and religion.
