However, you will perhaps find the best tourism from June-August and if it’s the best time for you to go, don’t let the climate put you off! December-February isn’t much warmer then England and we suggest you pack an umbrella and some woollies if you decide to visit during these months.

What to expect
Pack your guide book and camera and prepare yourself for the holiday of a lifetime! Rome city breaks have so much to offer, from incredible architecture and history to unbeatable food. The nearest beach is in Ostia 35 minutes from the capital, however with all of the fabulous attractions you might find you don’t have time to squeeze in a trip to the coast! There are endless selections of restaurants, buzzing nightlife and shops to suit everyone. Just a quick tip – if you’re grabbing a bite to eat or having a quick drink, stick to a café further from the main attractions as you usually end up paying double and sometimes triple the price.Attractions
Plan your days wisely as you will find endless things to do on a Rome city break. The Colosseum, the pantheon and the Trevi fountain are a must see and there are plenty of places to eat and grab a drink around these attractions. Don’t try to cram too much in though – make sure you’ve got lots of time to relax and have an ice cream! We also suggest you browse the markets and galleries, and get a real feel for the city’s warm atmosphere. Spend a day at the Vatican if you get the chance and visit the Vatican museum. Admire the Basilica of St. Peter and don’t miss out on snapping a photo of the Swiss Papal Guards! However, Rome pretty much speaks for itself so we recommend you spend your time exploring the cobbled streets, dipping into shops and cafés, and discovering the splendid 17th century squares and romantic Italian parks. Why not see where your feet take you? Just keep your valuables close as in any big city, and watch out for pickpockets.
