Rome, Italy’s bustling capital city, is a delight to visit any time of year. Brightsun Travel offers cheap holidays to Rome so you can enjoy the ultimate Italian city break this holiday. Rome’s historic centre boasts incredible architecture, whilst its many contemporary galleries will bring you right up to date. Exploring the city’s impressive art scene, you could start in arguably the city’s best gallery, Museo e Galleria Borghese, before exploring the contemporary Galleria Varsi, one of Rome’s most recent galleries that showcases graffiti art. Not stopping there, the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma, housed in a former peroni brewery, is a fantastic contemporary gallery, as is the Maxxi, featuring a range of installations. Other headliner attractions in Rome include the 200 year old Pantheon and the incredible Vatican Museums, which showcase Egyptian artefacts, modern art works and ancient statues. Then there’s the iconic Colosseum, where gladiator contests were once held. Alternatively, spend an afternoon at the world’s oldest public museums, the Capitoline Museums, and explore fine sculptures by the Italian greats. End up at the Fontana di Trevi landmark, made famous by the film La Dolce Vita.
For the best of the city’s nightlife, you could head to Pigneto, and for shopping, the Mercato Monti is where you’ll find young designers and vintage stalls. Leaving the heart of the city, you could explore neighbourhoods like Monteverde for a taste of traditional life in Rome and to discover some incredible restaurants off the tourist tracks. Or, head to the trendy neighbourhood of Trastevere and enjoy a car free environment, plus amazing cafes and bars. At the weekends you could join the crowds at St. Peter’s Basilica on a Sunday morning, all waiting to catch a glimpse of the popular Pope Francis. Or, for something more relaxing, the Via Appia Antica is a beautiful cobbled street lined with lawns and statues, best explored by bike. Finally, the Roman Forum, an incredible public space, is a great spot to head to for the day, with ruins of temples and churches and the city’s fair share of landmark sites.
