Book flights to Rome!
Visit Rome and let yourself be bowled over by its breathtaking ambiance.
The eternal city has a blend of many things that make it seem so grand: the opulence of the Vatican, the timelessness of the Forum, the speeding Fiat Bambinos, or the millions of cats in the Coliseum. Atac, local transport company has a sightseeing route, no. 110. It takes you around the city in two hours. Buses leave from central station, Termini via Colosseum, Circus Maximus, Piazza Venezia, Saint Peter's Square and Via Veneto.
Fly to Rome directly with Blue1 and feel centuries of turbulent ancient history beneath your feet. Remember to cool yourself down with the famous chestnut ice-cream on offer in Italy’s capital. The main tourist season starts at Easter and runs until October. And now that you have found your way to this magnificent historical city, why not take up the latest sport: Gladiatoral Combat? After three days of intensive training, the only thing you will need is a trident!

Aristocats - In 1929, the famous cats’ residency began. Stray and abandoned cats took refuge in the protected area below street level. From 1929 until 1993, the cats were more or less regularly fed by a succession of cat ladies or 'gattare', as they are condescendingly called by the Romans.
