Flights to Rome

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

Rome remains a hugely sought after destination, as 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 its 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 art collection of masterpieces from the Italian Renaissance.

Of course, the city is not without its modern charms, and travellers 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 and fun.

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

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.

Explore the city on two wheels

Some typical Roman activities are worth embracing, and touring through the streets of Rome on a scooter is one of them. Bici & Baci has motorbikes and scooters for hire all over the city, as well as bicycles if you prefer to explore at a slower pace.

Admire the view from Aventine Hill

Rome’s seven hills offer stunning views of the city. Venture into the Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta on Aventine Hill and gaze through the famous Knights of Malta keyhole for a unique perspective. Alternatively, the view from Gianicolo Hill is just as impressive.

Where to eat in Rome

La Prosciutteria (Italian)

When you want something other than pizza and pasta, the hearty antipasti at La Prosciutteria will do nicely. It’s the kind of laidback spot where lunch comes served on a wooden board – but the atmosphere is lively, the ingredients are fresh and it's always full of locals, so they must be doing something right.

Via della Panetteria, 34A
00187
+39 06 678 6990

Il Gelato di San Crispino (Ice cream)

This gelateria (ice cream shop) on Via Acaia was immortalised in Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir Eat Pray Love. They only use the best ingredients – pistachios from Sicily, lemons from Amalfi – and the resulting ice cream is exquisite. Try the honey with ginger-cinnamon flavour that is said to have particularly impressed the author.

Via Acaia, 56

+39 06 7045 0412

Lo Scopettaro (Authentic Roman)

If you're a traveller 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.

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
00185
+39 06 47091

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.
