Romans are proud people and their city is a reflection of their history, their faith and their love of food. Rome is also pretty easy on the eyes. Smell the aroma of fresh espresso and pizza wafting through the streets from markets selling fresh produce while ancient ruins can be viewed from just about every corner of the city. Visit the Vatican, bask in the sun on the Spanish Steps, eat gelato after every meal, make a wish in the Trevi Fountain and lose yourself down the cobblestone streets.

Most international flights to Rome will land at Fiumicino - Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, which is the main airport for Rome city. Simply known as Fiumicino Airport, it is Italy's largest airport. Located 25 kilometres southwest of Rome, it is possible to reach the city by train, bus or taxi. The ride by train is approximately 30 minutes and takes you right to the central railway station of Rome, Termini.

Whether you're into history or not, it's hard not to be impressed by the sheer history of Rome, and it sure wasn't build in a day so don't expect to see it that quickly either. Take your time to explore the Colosseum, look up at the Sistine Chapel and inside the Pantheon. The Vatican City, a state in its own right, is a treasure trove of Italian history and art. The proof is in the parchment, Rome was arguably the greatest civilisation on Earth.
The charm of Rome also comes down to its lively characters. Whether it's the old man behind the bar offering a joke as a side order to your Aperol spritz or insisting you try some of his wife's homemade focaccia, or the hole-in-the-wall place that's been selling the same porchetta sandwiches for over 100 years, Rome will greet you with pizzazz and hospitality. Take a bus tour around Rome and hit all the big sites. Our Rome tours and holidays packages can hook you up with the beat seats in the house.
