A cosmopolitan city with an ancient charm, Rome is often hailed as the birthplace of Western civilisation. Brimming with ancient history, fantastic restaurants and exclusive shops, and just a short trip from Ireland, this city is a must-visit destination for a weekend away.
City breaks to Rome are full of attractions and architecture that it's impossible to see everything in one trip, so consider a bus or walking tour to see the highlights before zoning in on your prime choices. Highlights include the Colosseum, the Imperial Forums, the Vatican City and the beautiful Piazza di Spagna. If shopping is your thing, head to Via dei Condotti and Via Borgognona where you will find the top designer boutiques.
Many of the best sites are within walking distance of the city centre, but there is a good 24H bus and tram system if you need to go further afield. You can also get travel passes from newsstands and vending machines around the city.
