Reasons to visit Rome

Head to the historic centre of Europe

Wander the streets of central Rome and you’ll find a vast, fascinating history that set the path for much of the continent to follow. A jaw-dropping 2,000-year-old temple, the Pantheon, is the best preserved of Rome’s ancient monuments. It’s also one of the most influential buildings in the world.

Wander past the Piazza Venezia and the ruins of ancient imperial palaces at Palatine Hill to reach the Colosseum. Completed in AD 80, the Colosseum was the largest amphitheatre of the Roman Empire, believed to have held baying crowds of more than 50,000 people.

via appia antica rome

Walk in the footsteps of gods at Via Appia Antica

Step back in time as you walk (or cycle) one of the oldest roads of the Roman Empire – Via Appia Antica, also known as the Appian Way.

One of the most picturesque trails in the city, this ancient road connected Rome with Brindisi on Italy’s south-east coast. It’s surrounded by a nature and archaeological park that’s packed with heritage sites.

It’s also the burial site for many notable figures in Roman history, with catacombs and mausoleums of popes, martyrs and nobility such as St Callixtus, Domitilla and Saint Sebastian – the patron saint of athletes and archers.

Rome’s location in the centre of Italy puts you in touch with other cities.

holiday Public holidays in Rome

As a country with strong Catholic traditions, Italy observes several public holidays that may differ from your home country. Epiphany is on the first Sunday in January, while the Feasts of Saints Peter and Paul fall in June and the Feast of Assumption in August. These are in addition to the Easter and Christmas holidays.

Where should I stay in Rome?

How many days should I spend in Rome?

What are some of the best things to do in Rome?

The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and Pantheon offer an awe-inspiring insight into Rome’s 3,000-year history, while the Vatican City is home to some of the world’s most iconic pieces of art and the Sistine Chapel.

What kind of food is Rome famous for?

Any trip to Rome would be incomplete without trying true Roman spaghetti alla carbonara – its famous pasta dish. Supplì, a deep-fried rice ball filled with cheese, is a delicious option for a quick snack, and loved by both locals and tourists alike. Then, of course, there’s pizza and gelato aplenty.
