The city that has had more influence on the world than any other single place is about to show you just how much power she has. Stand in awe of her ancient ruins, her romance and her ability to rule both the Roman Empire and the Catholic Church.
Today, Rome’s priceless art, ornate piazzas and picturesque streets draw more travellers than nearly any other capital. And to call this city a culinary paradise would be a huge understatement. Whether you’re a backpacker, history buff or foodie, flights to Rome need to be on your bucket list.
All roads lead to Rome—and so do all forms of transportation. A taxi or one of lastminute.co.nz’s car rental options will utilise the Grande Raccordo Anulare, or the GRA, which surrounds the city. You can also take the Leonardo Express train or the Terravision bus. Once you get into the city centre, our Rome holiday packages are best enjoyed by walking down the tangled lanes and ancient architecture.
Are you onRome flightsthat land in the morning? Good! You’ll have all day to visit the four basilicas of ancient Rome: St. Peter’s, St. Paul Outside the Walls (we love it when they rhyme), Santa Maria Maggiore and San Giovanni.
If you don’t arrive until the afternoon, that’s cool too. The masterpieces in the Galleria Borghese and Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna are calling your name. And if you touch down after dark, a nighttime view of the city from the Vittoriano is an epic way to spend your first hours before heading to one of our Rome hotels.
Want some Roman history mixed with the excitement of a theme park ride? Check out the Time Elevator. Hungry? Try ordering a cornetto and cappuccino, pizza al taglio (by the slice) or a panino (sandwich) like a real Roman! Remember, carbs don’t count when you’re on holiday.
