Flights to Rome

Why visit Rome?

It’s called the Eternal City for a reason. This is one of Europe’s most vibrant capitals, in a vast archaeological playground dating back more than 2,500 years.

Local hotspot

La Città dell'Altra Economia, Rome’s former slaughterhouse, is now a space for vintage fairs, art shows and live music, as well as housing an organic supermarket and Michelin-starred restaurant.

You probably didn’t know

The Colosseum was originally known as the “Amphitheatrum Flavium” after the Flavian dynasty. Its nickname came about because of a colossal, gold-plated statue that used to stand next door.
