For a holiday steeped in fascinating history as well as cutting edge entertainments and attractions, look no further than Rome. The capital of Italy boasts sights to thrill and inspire even the most seasoned of travellers and the many pubs, restaurants and nightclubs it sports will also ensure that visitors are never short of a place to kick back after an exciting day of sightseeing.

Also dubbed as the Eternal City, Rome has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status and features unforgettable attractions and historical sites. The ruins of ancient Rome have to be seen to be believed, and popular choices include the Coliseum and Piazza Venezia, these awe-inspiring sights are connected by the Via dei Fori Imperiali.

Visitors to the Old Rome area should also save some time to explore the Pantheon so that they can marvel at the site that has survived from 125 AD until today. The history of Rome and some of its greatest cultural achievements can also be enjoyed in the city's numerous Museums. The Capitoline Museums in the Colosseo district gives people the chance to peruse a very important collection of antique Roman and Greek art while the national museum at Palazzo Altemps and the National Museum at the Baths of Diocletian in the Modern Centre feature huge archaeological collections. Anyone looking for more unusual collections will enjoy a visit to the Musical Instrument Museum or the Museum of the Walls.

However, one of the most enchanting things about Rome is the fact that merely walking around the city is sure to fill you with delight, due to the fantastic architecture and beautiful buildings and gardens it houses. Anyone with a keen eye will find that a walk around the city can reward them with sights such as well-tended roof gardens or sculptures, paintings and religious icons gracing exterior walls.

What better after a day absorbing the wonders of Rome that to relax with a drink or a coffee in one of its lovely piazzas such as the Piazza Venezia, Piazza Navona or Piazza della Rotonda? On clement days sit outside and enjoy a gelato or choose indoor cafes, restaurants or bars in colder weather where you can also sample some traditional Italian cooking.

You'll find that the city is simply beautiful in all seasons and weathers, meaning that whatever time of year you choose to take your flights to Rome you're sure to have an experience to remember.
