Once the capital of the world, today Rome offers an invigorating mix of artistic heritage, rich culture, indulgent cuisine and 'La Dolce Vita'.
Situated in the central-western region of Italy, along the banks of the Tiber, it is home to the Vatican, an independent country and the only example of a country within a city anywhere in the world.
Looking to indulge in the culinary delights that Rome has to offer, you'll find all sorts, from contemporary fine dining to curbside eateries, but for the truly immersive experience, you'll be hard pressed to find a finer selection of pizza, pasta, wine, coffee and gelato. Just look to the locals for the perfect inspiration.
With lows of 12°C during the day in January and highs in the 30's during peak summer (July and August), the cool, humid winters and dry, hot summers make Rome a destination with year-round appeal, but we love September in Rome, when there's still plenty of sunshine, but the temperatures are starting to drop off and days average a very pleasant 25°C.
Leonardo da Vinci International Airport (FCO) is Italy's main airport, located just southwest of the city. Local transport is limited and taxis even more so. With congestion high, restrictions exist in many parts of the city and so a central hotel serves well here with most of the major attractions within walking distance.
With over 3000 years of rich history to immerse yourself in, the Colosseum, the Pantheon and St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican are just the start. Book your trip to Rome now and see for yourself.
