There are plenty of reasons to feel 'amore' for Rome. Charming cobblestone streets and laneways lead to the World Heritage-listed city centre – a tourist mecca home to iconic attractions such as The Pantheon and Piazza Navona, both spectacular examples of ancient Roman architecture.

Delve into the fascinating history of Rome with a visit to the Vatican City, home to St Peter’s Basilica, and venture to the ruins of the Colosseum, renowned as one of the great wonders of the world.

On quiet days, toss a coin and make a wish at the Trevi Fountain, sitting back and marvelling at the stone creation while savouring gelato or a classic 'pizza sandwich'.
