Why go to Rome

Rome wasn't built in a day, as the saying goes, and it can barely be seen in a week. But even a short city break to the Eternal City will give you enough time to see its highlights, from ancient ruins and medieval churches to Renaissance palazzos and Baroque fountains. There are superb shopping districts to explore, unmissable Michelangelo masterpieces to admire and a thousand photos to take.

Then there's the food and drink, an essential element of la dolce vita. Sip espresso in a corner cafe and lunch on delicious pizza and pasta. Leave space for an afternoon gelato and spend your evenings savouring al-fresco dinners in Rome’s finest neighbourhood trattorias.

Almost every street has something beautiful to see – one of the joys of a trip to Rome is simply wandering around, and you’ll want to slow down to take it all in. Take time to mooch about boho Trastevere, cross the Tiber River into the warren-like Centro Storico to people watch in a piazza and to laze in the lush Villa Borghese gardens. And then, of course, there are the big-name, must-see mega-attractions, from the Sistine Chapel to the Trevi Fountain.
