Rome

With over 3000 years of art, culture and architecture on display Rome has a cityscape like no other. World-renowned ancient structures of the Colosseum, Roman forum and Pantheon recall the city's golden age. The Vatican City holds further delights within the Vatican Museums, frescos of the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica (climb to the top for breath-taking views of the city). Take a break from the bustle of city life with a stroll around Rome's largest park Villa Borghese accompanied by a refreshing gelato. Located within the park you'll find Galleria Borghese, home to iconic works from Bernini, Titian and Caravaggio - it's an art lovers dream. A trip to Rome isn't the same without soaking up the relaxed city lifestyle; wonder down cobbled streets and people-watch on the Spanish Steps for a truly Roman experience. And surely, one can always anticipate the Al fresco meals of crispy pizzas, flavorful pastas and fine wines to add to the city's appeal.
