Italy Travel Notes presents Andrew H
A trip to Europe would not be complete without a trip to the Eternal City of Rome. Rome is one of those places that you will not get the feel of until you get there. No matter how many movies you see that are set in Rome, or how much studying you do about the history of the city, you will not feel what Rome is about until you step foot off that plane. If you are looking for a cheap flight to Rome, now is a really great time to start shopping!
There is more to see in this one city than most countries have to offer. In fact, the city of Rome has another country located within its walls – the Vatican. Your first stop should be St. Peter’s Basilica, whether you are Catholic or not. The immense courtyard will astound you, as you look around and realize how much of our history has come out of those walls.
A cheap flight to Rome means that you will have a little extra spending cash when you get there, and you will certainly want that! There is so much shopping in this town – the arts and crafts, the clothes, and the fine, Italian shoes! Make sure to leave a little spare room in your suitcase when you leave home, because you will need it.
Until recently, you couldn’t get a direct flight to Rome from most airports, but you can now get a cheap flight to Rome, either non-stop or with just one stop from most American cities. While in Rome, head north to Genova or Bologna, south to Napoli, or even keep going further and grab a boat to Sicily or even Greece! There is so much to do, though, in Rome, that you might never leave the city at all.
