Sip an aperitif at a pavement cafe, enjoy the freshest pasta in a trattoria and rest a while on the Spanish Steps.

Rome Travel Information

Getting There
Various flights from the UK to either Fiumicino or Ciampino airports in Rome. Flights take approx 2 1/2 hours. Discount hotel rates in Rome and city breaks are also available to book at Hessle Travel.

Getting Around
Rome's historic centre is fairly compact and although walking everywhere would be over ambitious, discovering the city on foot is certainly the preferable way of getting around. When distances are too great, take the public bus or tram. Although there is a Metro system, this is predominately to connect the suburbs with the centre.

Must See
Vatican City, St Peter's Basilica and Sistine Chapel and the Trevi Fountain.
