Holidays to Rome from Jersey
Rome is a sprawling city with nearly 3,000 years of influential art, architecture and culture on display. Ancient ruins such as the Roman Forum and the Colosseum evoke the power of the former Roman Empire. Vatican City, headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, boasts St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums, which house masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes. However, we think there is more to Rome than history, modern life is lived to the full and whiling away the hours at street side cafes and people-watching on pretty piazzas are an integral part of the Roman experience.
