Whether you want high-tech luxury or a 19th-Century hotel with Roman ruins in its garden. We are only a call away to craft your very own Roman Holiday.

Exploring and Activities

Most Rome’s attractions are within walking distance of each other. So you’ll be able to soak up the Roman way of life as you walk to the Pantheon or Trevi Fountain.

They divide Rome into several districts. Your sight-seeing and camera-snapping whilst on holiday in Rome will largely take place in the small centres of the sprawling city known as Old Rome and Colosseo.

As its name suggests, the Colosseo is home to the Colosseum and is the heart of ancient Rome with many other Forums and museums. Old Rome reflects the city’s medieval period with attractive plazas and cathedrals.

This area is also home to the Pantheon, the famous temple commissioned by Marcus Agrippa and completed in 126AD.

North of Old Rome is The Vatican, The Papal City State with a population of around 800. This is the home to the Pope and an everlasting trove of treasures, sights, relics and museums. A visit to the breath-taking St Peter’s Square is essential. Next to Old Rome and Colosseo is the Modern Centre. This is best place for accommodation for your Rome holiday if you intend to spend your entire vacation exploring the city and enjoying all it offers. Here you will also find the famous Trevi fountain, and many places to enjoy an unforgettable meal.

Food

Italy is, of course, famous for its food and no holiday in Rome is complete without experiencing some fine Roman dining. Often the best restaurants can be found in residential areas. Don’t be lured into ‘tourist traps’ where you’ll pay over the odds for mundane food. Italians love their food and love to cook.
