Rome

Rome Holidays

There is a reason why Rome is known as the “Eternal City”. Throughout history and to the present day, it has remained a place of great importance. The Vatican has been home to the Pope of the Catholic faith for centuries, and the city was once the centre point of the great Roman Empire. Whether you want to walk through its rich history or simply browse its vast selection of shops, there is no shortage of things to do in Rome.

Things to do in Rome

  • Marvel at Michelangelo’s magnificent ceiling in the Sistine chapel, one of the finest works of art in Europe.
  • Step back into the bloody history of the Roman Empire by touring the famous Colosseum of Rome. As this is one of Rome’s busiest spots, it would be recommended to book this as early as possible.
  • Throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain for good luck. It’s estimated that about €3,000 are thrown into it every day, even if you don’t want to add to that it remains a sight not to be missed!
  • If you are looking for something more spiritual, visit the centre of the Catholic Church for a chance to see the Pope. He reads a public mass on Wednesdays and Sundays whenever he is in Rome.
  • For those more interested in renowned Italian fashion, the Via Del Corso or Via Nazionale have a fantastic selection of high street shops.

Best time to visit

In terms of both weather, and the number of people, May or September tend to be the best times to visit. The ques tend to be shorter for the many different attractions as there are less people. Picking either of these months would skip the highest temperatures of July and August, yet still reach around 21°C. Many prefer the hotter months, but sightseeing in the heat can be difficult to handle.

Why we love it

Jodie “Rome is a great Italian city to visit. Between the numerous great things to see and do like sampling the fantastic restaurants and a great nightlife, you will be spoilt for choice. I would advise everyone to bring a comfortable pair of walking shoes and get out to explore as much of this wonderful city as possible.”

Date:26th June 2019Hotel/Flight Booking:FUERTEVENTURA-FUERTEVENTURA Comment:This is the fourth holiday we've booked with GoHop and they have been excellent throughout. On the one occasion we weren't happy with our accommodation goHop were able to process a refund from the hotel as we found accommodation elsewhere. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Date:22nd June 2019Flight Booking:MANCHESTER Comment:Annmarie was very helpful. She provided great customer service, information about my trip and options available to me. A pleasure to deal with, which is why Go Hop is my first choice for travel arrangements every time.
Date:21st June 2019Flight Booking:INVERNESS Comment:I was looking at accommodation in Inverness on a website that advertises hotel accommodation, and there were only two rooms left on the site for my room of interest, in spite of the fact that I was looking at a booking almost eleven months away. I booked the room and then I had to book flights to Inverness. I found flights on gohop.ie that I could use for a weekend away, that would allow me to comfortably arrive at the hotel before the end of the check in period. I was comfortable using gohop.ie to book the flights because I used the service to book flights in the past and they never let me down.
