Arriving in Rome

Book your flights to Rome with Etihad Airways and prepare to experience a world where antiquity and modernity gracefully walk hand in hand.

Plan Your Rome Holiday

We cannot begin to name all the reasons to travel to Rome, but let us give you a few. Sit by the waters of the Trevi Fountain and watch the lifeblood of the city – its people – hurry about the town. Stroll through the luxurious Villa Borghese, Rome’s second largest public park, which contains attractions and museums. Search for one-of-a-kind treasures in the shops along Via del Boschetto. Feed your senses in one of Rome’s many restaurants and sample the traditional, deservingly world-renowned cuisine.

The peak season in Rome runs from June to August. We recommend you purchase your tickets to Rome well in advance if travelling during the summer months. To find cheap hotels in Rome and avoid the heat and crowds, consider visiting in October or November or anytime from February until April. Winter might be chilly, but Rome offers so many indoor attractions that your trip will not lack for satisfying entertainment. Make sure to visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Rome throughout the year.
