Flights to Rome

There’s a reason Rome is called the Eternal City. The Italian capital is among the oldest continuously occupied cities in Europe, having been established about 3,000 years ago. The center of the city is a Unesco World Heritage Site; simply walking through the streets or wandering around the piazzas makes you feel closer to the past.

Rome remains a hugely sought-after destination; thousands of visitors descend on the capital each year to see its iconic sights, from the Pantheon to the Colosseum. For some, Rome’s significance lies in its status as home to Vatican City, an independent country that resides within Rome's boundaries. It’s also where you’ll find the Sistine Chapel and its famous ceiling painted by Michelangelo, as well as St. Peter’s Basilica, the world’s largest church. In the Vatican Museum, you’ll be bowled over by the collection of masterpieces from the Italian Renaissance.

Of course, the city is not without its modern charms; travelers catch flights to Rome from all over the world in search of the dolce vita, or sweet life. From Audrey Hepburn on her Vespa in Roman Holiday to Julia Roberts eating gelato near a fountain in Eat Pray Love, the city has always been synonymous with the pursuit of pleasure.

Whatever you do in Rome, do it on foot. While the public transport system is easy enough to navigate, it’s during slow, unhurried walks around the city that you’ll discover the true hidden gems—tucked-away cafes, charming boutiques, and quaint bookshops, to name a few.

What to do in Rome

Listen to live music at Big Mama

When in Rome and in search of good evening entertainment, do as the locals do. Head to Big Mama, a cozy blues lounge in the Trastevere district that’s been keeping music lovers entertained for three decades. Despite its reputation for Blues, expect an eclectic line-up that could include anything from rock to disco.

Visit the Protestant Cemetery

Although it may seem like an unusual destination, this green space is a beautiful part of the city for a slow stroll. Historically, it was the burial ground for any non-Catholics who died in the city. Today it is best known as the final resting place of two great Romantic poets: Percy Shelley and John Keats.

Visit the Pantheon

In Rome, the past is ever-present, and reminders of the city’s epic history are around every corner. Alongside the likes of the iconic Colosseum is the Pantheon, which dates back almost 2,000 years. Dominating a square in the heart of town, its imposing columns and impressive dome make a visit to this monument essential.

Where to eat in Rome

Lo Scopettaro (Authentic Roman)

If you're a traveler with an adventurous palate, this rustic restaurant is for you. Lo Scopettaro serves authentic Roman cuisine—think veal tongue, lamb heart, and tripe. There are more conventional pasta and seafood dishes, too, and some really good desserts.

Lungotevere Testaccio, 7

Ristorante Roma Sparita (Italian)

This casual spot in Trastevere is said to be the restaurant celebrity chef and TV presenter Anthony Bourdain raved about during a trip to Rome. Choose a sunny table outside for lunch and order the signature tagliolini cacio e pepe (peppery pasta with pecorino and parmesan cheese).

Piazza di Santa Cecilia 24

+39 6 580 0757

Mesob (Ethiopian)

If you’re in the mood for something other than Italian food, head straight to Mesob, a wonderful Ethiopian restaurant that serves some of the best meals in Rome. Chef and owner Kuki provides a warm welcome, and this is a great option if you’re looking for vegan or vegetarian food in Rome.

Places to stay in Rome

The St. Regis Grand Hotel

If what you crave in a hotel is old-world glitz and glamour, then a stay at the St. Regis Grand Hotel should do nicely. The spacious rooms are classically styled (although the on-site Thai spa is both modern and chic) and there’s something very comforting about the old-fashioned hospitality.

Via Vittorio Emanuele Orlando 3

The Inn at the Roman Forum

This charming boutique hotel is one of the only ones in Rome to house Roman ruins (a stone gallery with 2,000-year-old engravings). When you’re not soaking up the sun in the scenic garden, you’re well placed to explore the lively neighbourhood of Monti.

Via degli Ibernesi 30
00185 
+39 06 6919 0970

The Beehive

This popular hostel is both eco-friendly and budget-friendly. The Beehive is owned by a friendly American couple who are avid travellers themselves. You'll find a garden, lounge and vegetarian cafe. The low prices are aimed at backpackers, but families and couples will be equally comfortable.
