Best period to travel to Rome
Just 2-hours from Nantes, Rome is a great place to visit all year round! Temperatures are mild in Spring, ideal for getting lost in the streets of the Italian capital. With high temperatures and lots of sun, summers are perfect for doing a bit of sightseeing (whilst getting a nice tan of course!). Although a little wetter, you’ll appreciate the cosy climate in the winter months; you can always warm up in one of the city’s many museums.

What Rome has to offer?
Traces of Antiquity
The city’s ancient heritage includes the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the Roman Forum. Since then, other buildings have been added, supplementing the city’s urban heritage; for instance, churches have replaced temples. Often called the ‘Eternal City’, Rome is also considered the capital of Christianity and is home to stunning religious buildings, including St. Peter’s Basilica and, most famously, the Sistine Chapel, found in the Vatican.
A Lively, Vibrant Capital
Frequently decorated with fountains, the squares- Navona, Trevi, del Popola, Quirnale to name a few- are important hangout spots for filmmakers. The city also has all the liveliness of a southern city: bustling streets, busy neighbourhoods and avenues, and the lively, quick-paced conversations of the locals.
There’s no denying that when it comes to cooking, Italians do it best! Roman cuisine is simple yet delicious, with many of its dishes popular all over the world: Spaghetti Carbonara, Bruschetta, Gnoccia alla Romana or cariofi (artichokes) all romana steamed and stuffed with parsley and garlic…. enjoy!
