Just a 3-hour flight away, Rome is a capital city world-renowned for its exquisite food and wines, history, culture and stunning architecture.
A World Heritage Site, you will find at every turn opulent fountains, staggering monuments and stunning churches. Situated on the west coast of Italy, Rome is perfect for a romantic get-away or for families with older children.
Our holiday pick
Most hotels are based on bed and breakfast, so you can dine out at the many cafés and restaurants during the day and evening. However some hotels do have half board supplements for those who are looking to relax in their accommodation after a long day’s sightseeing.
You can fly locally from Stansted or Gatwick or, if you prefer, coach and rail travel is also available.
Two nights in Rome at a 3* hotel, with bed and breakfast and flights included, cost an average of £155 per person. Pop into your local East of England Co-op travel branch to get the most up-to-date offers.
If you are only in Rome for a couple of days you will have to move fairly briskly to pack in all that it has to offer.
Visit the Imperial Rome Colosseum and Sistine Chapel, take a trip to the Basilica of St Peter’s with its breath-taking views of Rome or throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain for luck.
Join one of the many guided walking and bus tours or let our travel teams help plan your excursions, with pre-bookable entry passes, to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
