EXPLORE THE ETERNAL CITY
Few cities combine historical might and the joys of modern living quite as well as Rome.
On the one hand, the likes of the Colosseum, Pantheon and Roman Forum let you discover the heart of the Roman Empire.
However, on the other, experiencing la dolce vita - translated as 'the good life' - is possible through spending your time roaming the picturesque piazzas and streetside cafes.
The alfresco life continues into the evening in the city, with family-friendly trattorias and pizzerias among the locals capturing the essence of the Roman experience.
Looking for great wine? The nearby Castelli Romani hills supply much of the glorious white wine here, while the coffee is also said to be one of the best in the world.
