Rome Holidays: An Overview

Words alone cannot do justice to Rome. Those who haven't been should do so as a matter of priority, while those who have will need little or no persuading to return. Inject some culture into your Rome holiday by exploring its incredible architecture, bustling food markets and piazzas, and its myriad historical sites.

The city is, of course, famous for its thousands of years of history and has so much to offer that it is hard to know where to begin. From the sublime Pantheon, built by the emperor Hadrian, to the bustle of the food market at Campo de' Fiori, a luxury holiday in Rome bristles with memorable sights.

Walk back in time through the Forum of ancient Rome to the Colosseum, witness the staggering opulence of St. Peter's Basilica, or take a twilight passeggiata or stroll in the Pincio Gardens above the Piazza del Populo for a spectacular view over the city. Everyone from Caesar Augustus to Michelangelo and Mussolini has left their mark on this extraordinary city.

From the evocative Appian Way, where Spartacus' men were crucified, to Bernini's fountains and Fellini's film La Dolce Vita, Rome is a phenomenal concentration of history, legend and artistic masterpieces. And of course the Italian capital has wonderful restaurants to sustain you in your sight-seeing. Relax in one of the many trattorias or pizzerias of the Trastevere district, or enjoy an aperitif at one of Rome's legendary cafés and watch the world go by. Surely you need no more persuasion to visit Rome on your next luxury holiday!
