Day trips to Rome by air from Stanstead Airport
Renowned for its stunning art and architecture, chaotic traffic and happy-go-lucky attitude of its people, Rome is a city like no other and a perfect place to spend a remarkable day. A living museum 2.500 years in the making, the city well deserves the nickname ‘The Eternal City’. The heart of the city is a warren of narrow cobbled streets and piazzas crammed with Renaissance and Baroque buildings, fine old palaces, churches and the occasional ornamental fountain.
Ancient Rome surrounded by history is home to magnificent marble monuments and Roman ruins including the Coliseum, the Pantheon and the Roman Forum. The museum Villa Borghese and the gardens built in 1605 are a contemplation of art and nature and hold a unique collection of precious art pieces.
Across the famous river lies the Vatican City, the only surviving papal state and a quarter of the Trastevere area whose narrow cobbled streets host a myriad of restaurants and youth-orientated alternative scenes.
Shopping is also one of the many attractions in Rome. Designer shops around the Spanish Steps, upmarket boutiques and chain stores in Via del Corso make a day in Rome ideal to mix sightseeing with shopping making this a unique experience.
