Rome is a magical city where old sits alongside new, where there’s something to discover at every turn. With a history that spans more than two and a half thousand years, Rome is regarded as one of the birthplaces of Western civilisation.

Make the best of the beaten track by heading to the Pantheon to admire the stunning architecture, and visit the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre ever built. Visit Via Biberatica, the most intact ancient street, and make a wish at the Trevi Fountain. We bet your feet will be sore after all that exploring, so head to the Spanish Steps to relax with a side of people watching.

All that exploring is bound to make you hungry, so it’s lucky that Rome is packed full of places to indulge in delicious Italian cuisine. Grab a slice of pizza or head to a traditional trattoria to sample dishes such as Nonna Betta and Cacio e Pepe. Make sure there’s room for gelato and a glass of red wine from one of the city’s many outside bars.

Rome is brimming with culture, exciting history, fantastic food and friendly locals, making it a destination to conquer for travellers from Europe and beyond.
