Rome

Holidays

Whether you've only got a long weekend or intend to spend an entire week away, a city break in Rome will tick all the boxes, especially if you're interested in history and culture. The city also experiences pleasant weather all year round, with the temperature rarely falling below zero, even in December and January when it is at its coldest. In the summer (July and August) temperatures can hit 30 degrees C, although spring and autumn are generally considered to be the best seasons to visit in, as they are warm, don't usually see too much rain and the days are long. With regular flights to Rome departing from the UK all year, you should find it easy to arrange your city break, no matter when you'd prefer to travel.

Top sights in Rome

Rome is home to far too many sights and places of interest to list them all; however, there are a few must-sees that you should include on the itinerary for your trip to the city.

The Colosseum

This is one of Rome's most iconic sites and certainly somewhere you should visit on a trip to the metropolis. Dating back 2,000 years, this ancient Roman theatre is an incredible sight to behold and is worth exploring in detail. Due to its popularity among visitors, it's advisable to buy a ticket in advance either online or by contacting the local tourism office directly.

The Colosseum

Basilica of St John

There are numerous churches in Rome that you can discover, but the Basilica of St John is particularly fascinating. Its spectacular 18th century facade will grab your attention, while inside you'll find incredible decor and architecture designed by Borromini.

St Peter's Square

The Forums 

Although this site is not open for the public to wander around, you can still appreciate its beauty and significance. The Forums is a large square that was expanded by various Roman emperors to create the administrative and monumental centre of Rome. However, the remains of the site were buried and not uncovered until the early 20th century when the structures that had been erected here were demolished.

Basilica of St Peter 

No city break in Rome would be complete without a day spent in the Vatican. The Basilica of St Peter is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and beautiful churches in the world; make sure you climb up to the dome to appreciate Michelangelo's work close up.

Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel 

Also within Vatican City are numerous museums and, of course, the Sistine Chapel. Queuing to see Michelangelo's masterpiece is well worth it, while the Pinacoteca (another art gallery) is a must for those interested in creative works.

Eating out in Rome

As you'd expect from a thriving city, Rome isn't short of excellent places to eat and drink. In fact, some of its top restaurants are close to important monuments, allowing you to continue sightseeing as you dine. A fine example of this is Terrazza Manfredi, where you have amazing views of the Colosseum (although it's worth noting this restaurant is only open in the summer).

Terrazza delle Quadrighe is another magical place to eat, with this terrace some 81 m up on the National Monument to Victor Emmanual II boasting incredible views of the skyline and offering a selection of basic snacks and meals. However, for the ultimate unusual dining experience, book a table on Tramjazz - a 1947 tram that's been restored to act as a mobile restaurant that will take you through some of Rome's most picturesque districts as you dine.
