Rome is the only city in the world to contain an independent country (Vatican City) within her. With some of the most awe-inspiring buildings, fascinating art, incredible food and wine, and spectacular sights in Europe, holidays to Rome make for the perfect city break. The Eternal City is crowned as the world's greatest open-air museum, with thousands of historic sites dominating the capital and the skyline. A cradle for several civilisations, this European city has probably best-preserved myriads of architectural styles—from Pagan Temples to Gothic and Baroque.
Visit in October when average temperatures are a pleasant 22°C, or, fly in spring when the weather is slightly cooler and the Lenten season begins. From the ancient Colosseum to the stunning Spanish Steps and Sistine Chapel, Rome holidays are a haven for history lovers, too. Take a romantic walk along the Tiber, find endless gorgeous piazzas for lunch, day trip to famous Pompeii - where an ancient city lies frozen in time (literally) - or soak up the laid-back vibes of this enchanting metropolis. Kids will love the colourful murals, interesting museums and the sunny piazzas and parks, too. Want to explore more of Italy's capital?
