Spotlight on Rome
Named the 'Eternal City' by the Romans, Rome has indeed maintained much of its Roman history, with many monuments still standing after 2,000 years. With its breathtaking cityscape, food and culture it's no wonder people continue visiting from all around the globe to make a wish at the Trevi Fountain.
Whilst in Rome you can also visit a city within a city, with a trip to the Vatican, so why not start your trip with a two hour guided tour of the Vatican Museums and skip the line to take in the awe-inspiring Sistine Chapel.
Of course, a trip to the Colosseum is a must, walking around what was once an ampitheatre, drawing in crowds of over 50,000 to witness gladiatorial battles, chariot races and processions.
