Earlier this year we had a fantastic long weekend break to Rome. We stayed in a Best Western which I can thoroughly recommend. We travelled in with Ryanair, which I can honestly say are not my favourite airline but if you wanted cheap they were your only option. I am sure they made plenty of money charging £60 to some poor passengers who hadn’t read there warning about oversized bags.
Trainers is essential for Rome as is a visit in a cooler climate as walking is what you will be doing and I am not exaggerating. But oh my it is worth it. To see the sheer size of the Coliseum and try to understand the wealth and power and also advancement the Romans had is amazing. I still haven’t watched Troy, but everyone else in Rome seemed to have so that’s next on my list!
We were disappointed with the food places we found as were a couple we met on the plane home so please research food places before you go as its not cheap and if you don’t really get nice food for the price you won’t be happy.
I hope you enjoy the pictures we took and that it may entice you to visit Rome as it is worth a weekend visit.
