What we love

The Eternal City is not only one of the world’s oldest and most beautiful cities, but is one of the most vibrant and romantic.

Italy

The destination

World-famous landmarks literally litter the city – from the Pantheon to the Coliseum, the Spanish Steps to the Trevi Fountain, and not forgetting the Vatican’s treasures. This is where history comes to life as you wonder round a city where gladiators would meet and gods were worshiped.

However, it is more than just phenomenal sightseeing that captivates visitors to Rome. As a city that embodies the many passions of the Italians – food, shopping, art and wine – the exhilarating pace of life in Rome sweeps everyone along in its path. Excellent transport links as well as Rome’s reputation as a city easy to navigate by foot, make this a wonderful short-break destination. But with so much to see in the city, as well as many green spaces and truly wonderful places and experiences within a short distance of the city, Rome is a perfect base for longer stays also.

Chic living and a cosmopolitan way of embracing city life was arguably developed in Rome. Our perfect day would start with a cappuccino outside a cafe in the Piazza Navona, a leisurely stroll through the narrow lanes of Trastevere, lunch in a Trattoria and a spot of shopping along the Via Dei Condotti and Via del Corso. But with so much to offer, why not stay longer?
