spending time in.
Around every corner, there's further evidence of Rome's rich history: grand buildings line the street; elaborate statues take pride of place in flower-filled piazzas; and archaeological sites are preserved for all to see.
No Rome city break would be complete without a visit to Vatican City, the smallest independent state in the world. Definitely one of the most popular of attractions in Rome, and a must-see for most visitors, it's worth planning some time into your Rome itinerary to ensure you'll get to experience the Vatican's magnificent sights first-hand. Take the time to wander through the fascinating museums; marvel at the spectacular ceiling of the Sistine chapel; and admire the intricate details of St. Peter's Basilica.

A weekend break in Rome can be enjoyed year-round. Take advantage of the smaller crowds throughout the winter months, or experience one of the many al fresco events that take place throughout the summer.
