Luxury holidays in Rome
Star in your own Roman holiday, trying to look as good as Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn on the back of a Vespa as you do it. The faithful flock to the Vatican, but pilgrims of an artistic persuasion can also take their pick from Caravaggio-clad churches, Old Masters-filled museums and a vibrant street-art scene. Stroll the Eternal City’s mediaeval streets and baroque piazzas, ticking off the Colosseum, the Forum and Palatine Hill along the way, then indulge in la dolce vita – shop the bijou boutiques of Trastevere, mainline gelato, people-watch at a Campo de’ Fiori café, and sip an aperitivo or two at sundown.

When to go
