Rome

Rome has everything you’d want from a modern city break holiday but critically, it’s the city’s history that acts as the principal magnet. From the remains of its imperial glory days to the Renaissance and baroque riches of its historic centre, Rome is a glorious architectural patchwork – a living masterpiece.

Begin your journey at the Vatican City, declared an independent state in 1929 and home to St. Peter’s Basilica (the largest church in the world), the Vatican Museum and the shining star of the Italian Renaissance, the Sistine Chapel. The awe-inspiring architecture and art collection make the Vatican City top of the list of must-sees.
