Rome

Rome short breaks

Introduction

Built on seven hills along the banks of the River Tiber in the Lazio Region, Rome is a collision of ancient empires and a modern metropolis.

Hordes of glamorous locals sip espressos in the central Piazzas (squares) or zip past the cities Roman structures on pastel-coloured Vespas, while priests clothed in monastic purple robes wander through Rome's holiest of sanctuaries, The Vatican City.

Effortlessly chic, Rome‘s combination of luxury hotels and rich cultural heritage has drawn visitors for centuries and many choose to visit Rome and combine it with a twin-centre stay in another of Italy's irresistible cities, such as Milan, Venice or Florence.

Central Rome

Rome's attractions include the romantic Trevi Fountain, The Vatican City and St Peter's Square, the Roman relics of the Pantheon, the Roman Forum and the magnificent Coliseum.

Rome's busy Piazzas sit at its heart and some are not to be missed, in particular the baroque masterpiece that is the Piazza Navona and the Piazza di Spagna, which dates back to XVIII century and boasts the Spanish Steps.

You can stay close to the Spanish Steps and Rome's historic centre in one of the best hotels in Rome, the luxurious Hotel Eden, a short walk from the famous shopping streets of Via Condotti and Via Veneto.

Sightseeing in the compact Ostia Antica (ancient city), some 30 kms from Rome, is an unforgettable experience.

Vatican City

The Vatican spans 110 acres in the centre of Rome and is the smallest state in the world.

The majestic Vatican complex holds 11 Vatican museums, St Peter's Basilica, the ornate Vatican Gardens and Rome's Renaissance jewel: The Sistine Chapel. The chapel is the official residence of the Pope and is resplendent with Michelangelo's iconic paintings adorning its awe-inspiring ceiling. The Sistine also features frescoes by Raphael, Bernini and Botticelli and, arguably, Michelangelo's finest and most famous artwork: The Last Judgement.

Lazio Region

The beautiful Lazio Region surrounds Rome with charming rural villages and Etruscan ruins.

If the unending array of art and culture becomes too much, leave the city behind and visit Sperlonga, a relaxing seaside retreat halfway between Rome and Naples in the Latina Province.

Tivoli, a hill town just 40 minutes drive from Rome on the Anine River also makes an ideal day trip from Rome. See the grand Villa D'esta with its magnificent gardens and the remains of Hadrian's villa, the Villa Adriana, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
