Information about flights to Rome

Cheap flights Rome

Most famous for being the capital of what was probably the most influential empire in history, Rome probably has a greater density of ancient and medieval landmarks than any other place on earth. The Romans built their empire by following two principles: exploring the ideas and innovations of Ancient Greece, and building a novel infrastructure that would enable the empire to expand rapidly and flourish.

Learn about Rome's ancient reign, explore what happened during its dramatic decline, and discover how the Eternal City revitalised itself during the Italian Renaissance. In the early afternoon, take a break by dining in an authentic Roman restaurant and enjoy a slow Italian lunch. There's nothing more energising than a scrumptious Bruschetta antipasto followed by a tasty Carbonara and a delicious dessert like a crostata di ricotta cheesecake.


The Colosseum

You can never say you've truly been to Rome unless you've seen the Colosseum. Also referred to as the Flavius amphitheatre, the Colosseum is the most famous Roman landmark in existence and is more than 1,900 years old. After the Fall of Rome, this structure was abandoned and was eventually converted into a quarry in the Middle Ages. Fortunately, around 40 percent of the original amphitheatre still survives, and when viewed from the northwest, it still appears like a complete structure.


The Vatican

The centre of the Roman Catholic Church, the Vatican is home to the magnificent St Peter's Square. It is also home to one of the world's largest churches, St Peter the Basilica, and one of the world's most important museums, the Vatican Museum. The Vatican houses the Sistine Chapel, which features what is probably the most beautiful ceiling ever created, decorated by the genius Michelangelo.


Trevi Fountain

Next to the Roman aqueduct Aqua Virgo, the Trevi Fountain was built in the mid 18th century to replace an older, much smaller fountain that had existed since the 15th century. The fountains were largely built with stone imported from Tivoli, about 35 kilometres away, and are overlooked by several imposing statues designed by Filippo della Valle and Pietro Bracci.


Spanish Steps

From the top of the Spanish Steps, you can enjoy one of the finest views of the Eternal City. These steps were built in the early 18th century to link the Spanish square with the church of Trinita dei Monti and have long been a popular meeting place for Italians and tourists alike.


Other points of interest

Observe the impressive Egyptian obelisk of the Piazza Navona, one of Rome's largest squares, or explore the ancient Forum and immerse yourself in these breathtaking ancient ruins. You should also consider visiting the 16th-century Quirinal Palace, one of the world's largest palaces, and the outstanding Altara della Patria monument, one of Rome's largest landmarks.
