Rome, Italy Holidays

Situated in the Lazio region of eastern Italy, Rome is a city of approximately 2.75 million people. It was founded in 753BC making it one of the oldest and finest cities in the world. Its longevity and importance to many of the seminal moments in European history have made Rome a must-see destination for travellers year after year.

Summer temperatures can reach 30 degrees celsius in the city so stay hydrated and bring sunscreen! In winter it doesn't get very cold but it can be chilly and rainy.

Being one of the top-ranked cities to visit means that there is a great deal to see in Rome and planning your trip is important. The best way to see the city is on foot although there is a metro system as well as buses and taxis. The Metro is limited but has stops at most of the popular sites. The Colosseum is of course top of the list for every visitor to Rome and rightly so. No matter how many times you've seen it on the television it will still take your breath away when you experience it up close. Not far away is the Forum and the Palatine Hill, both still exuding the grandeur of ancient Rome. For a feeling of what real Roman living is like you must take a walk through Trastevere
● cobbled streets, ancient houses, pure Roman character. Of course, there's the Vatican City too: St. Peter's Square, St. Peter's Basilica, The Sistine Chapel, and the Vatican Museums. With so much to see it may be a good idea to take a guided city tour first to get your bearings while you experience the wonder of the Eternal City.

Rome is a shopper's paradise. It runs the gamut from high-end brands to tacky souvenirs and everything in between. There are several areas that are a must for the shopaholic. Monti is where Romans shop for jewelry, second-hand clothes, up and coming designers. You can also try Via Del Governo Vecchio or Via Cola Di Rienzo for top designer brands and more familiar names. It should go without saying but we'll say it anyway
● Romans love their food and wine and you will too. There is no one particular area to recommend for dining. On almost every street you'll find a wonderful cafe or restaurant. Dive in and enjoy.
