When you take your SWISS flight from San Francisco to Rome, you embark on a journey to Ancient Rome, the Eternal City.
Only a few cities can compete with the cultural richness of the Italian capital, founded almost three millennia ago. Marvel at the impressive Colosseum, once hosting the circus games and gladiator fights for the people of Rome. Stroll around the Forum Romanum, the socioeconomic center during the days of the Roman Empire.
Plan sufficient time to visit the Vatican home to the largest basilica in the world, the St. Peter’s Basilica. The Vatican Museums exhibit various art treasures linked to the Catholic Church, and the Sistine Chapel stuns with its virtuously painted frescoes made by no other than the brilliant genius Michelangelo.
The climate of Rome promises hot and sunny summers and mild winters. No matter during which season you choose for a flight to Rome, the trip will be worth your time and money. As more than 2000 years of history are impossible to explore during just one stay, it is most fortunate that SWISS offers flights to Rome all year long.
