Rome Holidays

Rome holidays

Rome: the place where every love story starts (fact) - even if it's the love story between you and a bowl of spaghetti.

Destination highlights

  • Home to the one and only Trevi Fountain (the one you throw coins into and make a wish)

  • More history than your grandparents' loft, so pack your comfiest Crocs if you want to see it all

  • Pizza, pasta and gelato galore - AKA, the best food coma you've ever been in

  • Speedy flight time (just over two hours!)

What are the best sights to see in Rome?

Mamma mia, you don't even wanna get us started on all the things to see and do in Rome...oh, wait. You do? Okay phew, because this page would be pretty bland otherwise. (Unlike the bowl of carbonara you inevitably order, because...well, when in Rome 😉.) Even if you're on an all-inclusive holiday to Italy, you'll probably want to get out and about a bit to see what all the fuss is about. Here are some of the juiciest bits to keep on your radar:

  • Trevi Fountain - chances are you've seen this place plastered all over social media - it's the iconic fountain where locals and tourists come to toss coins and make wishes - perfect for getting rid of those last few pesky euros before your flight home! Just a heads up though - it can get a smidge busy, so if you want some cool pics without being photo-bombed, you're gonna have to set your alarm early (no snoozing), and get here between 6 and 7am. You can do it 💪

  • Colosseum - history, but make it fun. This amphitheatre is an absolute whopper (clue's kinda in the name), and it'll have you shook before you've even stepped inside. Snap plenty of pics outside and then head to the second floor for a look at what the 'VIP' spectators would see back in the day (AKA, the rich folk), and have a wander around the arena itself for some really eerie feels.

  • Pantheon - this is one of the city's best-kept monuments (nice one, Mother Nature), and it's actually got a PHD: a Pretty Huge Dome. You can admire all you like from the outside, but you're definitely gonna wanna step inside to get a photo of that thing.

  • Spanish steps - leg day? Sorted, mate. Make sure you pack your comfy shoes for this one. There are 135 of these steps - all leading to Pincio Hill, and they're one of the most iconic attractions in Rome. Yeah, Rome. We're still in Italy here. Don't let the name confuse you (Charlotte from our Content Team had to check on Google Maps three times. Geography isn't her strong suit. Luckily, talking about holidays is.)

  • Vatican City - AKA, the one where the Pope lives. If you think of Italy as a Russian doll (because why wouldn't you), then Vatican City is like a city within a city. Expect alllll the Renaissance vibes, huge history-stuffed museums (1400-rooms huge), and loads of gardens to explore, with fountains and cacti.
