Rome

Rome is a city like no other, rivaled in its historic importance by not more than a handful of other cities. Looking back on not centuries, but millennia of greatness, it remains until today the number one travel destination in Italy, the political capital of the country and the economic centre of the entire region. When you board your flight to Rome in Birmingham, you should better seize this last opportunity for a short rest, before entering an unwinnable battle against time, trying to see as many of the sights Rome has to offer as possible.

Attractions like the Colosseum and the adjacent Forum Romanum, the ancient market place of the Romans, are an absolute must on anyone’s travel bucket list. Marvel at the almost intact Pantheon with its historic tombs and take the obligatory selfie at the iconic stairway known as the Spanish Steps, which is being used as a meeting point by tourists and locals alike. Sip an original cappuccino in one of the cafes around Piazza Navona and watch the streams of pedestrians on the bustling streets of Rome

When in Rome you should of course also plan sufficient time to enter the Vatican with its impressive St. Peter’s Basilica and marvel at the breathtakingly beautiful frescos of Michelangelo decorating the Sistine Chapel. Make sure to throw a coin over your shoulder into the Trevi Fountain; that way you are certain it won’t have been the last time on a flight from Birmingham to Rome.
