Holiday In Rome

For your next getaway, you’ve got big ambitions: thousands of years of history, internationally famous nightlife and pasta, pasta, pasta! Rome, Italy may be the only city that can truly call itself “The Capital of the World”—and never one to be modest, it does just that. You don’t need to be shy, either. Rome holiday packages will have you shouting from the rooftops (or breakroom).

Things to Do in Rome

Got some skeletons in your closet? Rome understands. In fact, a holiday in Rome can do one better: It has chandeliers made of pelvises in its closet (or more accurately, basement). Under the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione, the Capuchin Crypt holds a jigsaw puzzle of bones. Enter if you dare, but leave the camera in your pocket—you’ll have to settle for these bones haunting only your dreams.

Back in the sunlight, you can rise above the darkness, quite literally, with a walk up the Spanish Steps in Piazza di Spagna. You’ll feel like Marcus Aurelius at the top of the 137 stairs. Reward yourself with a cafe macchiato (or a glass of frascati wine) and some people-watching. While you’re in the city, you can reach most attractions using the Metro system, and lastminute.com.au has plenty of Rome car hire deals for exploring the countryside—or impressing the local eye candy.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

There’s no better time to shop on a Rome holiday than when you’ve got a little buzz on—caffeine or otherwise. For souvenirs that are a little (or a lot) off-the-beaten-path, go west to the Ponte neighbourhood, near Piazza Navona. Antiques, art galleries and jewellery in the shape of insects can all be found here, but the real highlight is for the especially bold: Seek out elixirs and potions made by monks. Nothing is more impressive than bringing home happiness, beauty and eternal youth for your friends and family.

Admit it. Trips to Italy are mostly about one thing: food! If you don’t want to fight crowds like you’re in gladiator tryouts, take the Metro south to Testaccio, where you’ll find the real deal when it comes to Roman food. Pretty much anything comes deep-fried or at least stewed in fat, so try fiori di zucca (zucchini flowers and cheese) and, for the adventurous, coda alla vaccinara (oxtail in butter). If it’s not fried, you can dip it in booze—ciambelle al vino are cookies meant to be dipped in wine. Now that’s a corker of a holiday!

Rome holidays really shine when it comes to nightlife. Ever seen the sun rise over a pyramid surrounded by ancient Roman architecture? Neither has most of the world, but after a night partying in Testaccio, you will! You’ll have plenty of pregaming time, as clubs here won’t start hopping until well after midnight and then keep the party going until the sun comes up.

What’s Next?

Great at hitting the piss and getting low on the dance floor, but not so great at planning? No worries. Book a Rome holiday package on lastminute.com.au and you’re sure to get the best deals around—no thinking ahead required.

Hotels in Rome

Before you get too excited dreaming up your future adventures, you've gotta dibs that Rome hotel. While there are no fewer than 2808 accommodations waiting patiently for you on lastminute.com.au, it's better to be safe than sorry! After all, it is the national capital!

No matter how you like to roll, there's a room waiting for you in Rome. For accommodation that won't break the bank, book in at either the Villa Spalletti Trivelli (Via Piacenza 4) or the Manfredi Luxury Apartments (Palazzo Manfredi Via Labicana 125). Two more you may want to consider are the Rocco Forte Hotel De Russie and the J.K. Place Roma. These upmarket hotels are for those who want to live like a king or queen while they're here.

No journey to Rome is complete without stopping by St. Peter's Basilica. The Gran Meliá Rome Villa Agrippina -The Leading Hotels of the World and the Aurelia Residence are both within a short distance.
