La dolce vita

The Italian capital has had many different lives, making it one of the most varied cities in the world. At once historic, beautiful, artistic and modern – where ancient architecture and contemporary chic prevail, side by side.

Rome has weathered change – embraced it – and adapted itself to a new form. Now a fashionable city, Rome sits securely in the modern world, with a sophisticated, swaggering populace who have perfected the Italian art of idleness as a way of life. Up and coming areas dominate the bar scene, much like any capital city. Visit San Lorenzo or Monti to make the most of central Rome, you should expect plenty of well-heeled students and creatives drinking craft beer and cocktails. Yet Rome is a wonderfully ancient city, and when walking its streets you cannot help but stumble across history. From the spectacular architecture of the ancient Empire to the magnificence of Vatican City – the Catholic Church’s bastion of faith – this timeless city will bring you back again and again. With our frequent flights to Rome there’s nothing stopping you.
