Cheap flights to Rome are on every traveller's wish list for the Italian capital is a must-visit city, one of those "see before you die" destinations.
Rome is ancient. Spread across seven hills, on the River Tiber, every cobbled stone suggests its long history - the gladiators fought here in the Colosseum, the faithful prayed here in the Pantheon, Michaelangelo enjoyed the patronage of popes here.
The devout still make a pilgrimage to Rome to visit the Vatican City, the Pope's residence and a city-state of great importance. St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museums attract millions of visitors each year. Michelangelo designed the dome (there are 323 steps to the top to enjoy heart-stoppingly beautiful views of Rome) and, perhaps most famously, painted the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel.
After the culture, soak up the atmosphere where it's at its best - on the streets. Rome comes to life in the mid-morning and buzzes until late at night. The Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, the most theatrical of the piazzas, or Trastevere, bohemian and with a young vibe, are where you'll get a real taste of this amazing city.
