Rome Hotels & Holidays
The Eternal City of Rome has a timeless magic. Magnificent and overwhelming, Rome comprises of ancient monuments and artistic wonders including the mighty Colosseum, St Peter's Basilica and the celebrated Sistine Chapel ceiling. Rome's flower-filled piazzas are enclosed by imposing Baroque architecture and are adorned with renowned statues and fountains, each cloaked in legend. In addition to the fountain-splashed piazzas that stand as monuments to its great artists, distinguished by Bernini's Four Rivers in Piazza Navona, visitors are drawn in vast numbers to St Peter's Basilica and proceed to gather in the Vatican Museum with its celebrated Sistine Chapel. Rome's contemporary flair is reflected in its sophisticated café society and designer boutiques. In keeping with its reputation for dramatic contrasts, Rome is a city where you can enjoy a city break that beautifully blends culture, gastronomy and shopping.
Discover the Rome of Julius Caesar and Borgia popes, with ancient voices echoing in its Pantheon and past gladiatorial combats still ringing in Vespasian's Colosseum. To live in Rome is to enter into the spirit of Alberto Moravia's novels and participate in Federico Fellini's film La Dolce Vita. It is to share the excitement of Via Veneto and its sophisticated café society. Diverse and lyrical, Rome is united by the love of food, fashion and football! A stroll along Lungotevere leads across the river linked by monumental bridges to Castel Sant'Angelo. Follow the Tiber south to the medieval quarter of Trastevere, where in its narrow streets you can breathe the authentic popular mood exalted by poets like Belli and Trilussi, and explore the many pizzarie, trattorie and restaurants. Return to Palazzo Poli and admire the Trevi Fountain - and don't forget to throw in a coin to ensure your return! Linger on Campo dei Fiori, once a flowery meadow and now a lively piazza with a delightful flower and vegetable market.
