About the Holiday
Travel Italy by train it is faster and more relaxing than air or road travel, getting you from city centre to city centre (saving you precious time) and the ability to watch the landscape change as it whizzes past. Why would you travel any other way.
Rome is an open-air museum that shines with countless architectural treasures that represent the best of Italian art, in many of its periods. If you think in Rome it is automatically to its main attractions, amphitheatres, fountains, squares and neighborhoods that, together, make the city great.
Everyone's heard the Doors of Paradise, the Duomo, and Michelangelo's David are captivating, but in Florence, beauty can sneak up on a traveller unexpectedly. You'll duck into a random church to escape the heat only to spend two hours staring at an impossibly pure blue in a fresco. Or you'll consider writing a sonnet about pear gelato. It'sjust that kind of place. Don't miss the sunset over the Arno and the famous wines of the Chianti region just south of town.
Stunning architecture, mysterious passageways and of course, the canals. Venice is one of the most alluring cities in the world, the type of place where, as a visitor, you'll welcome getting lost (as you inevitably will). Relax in Piazza San Marco, take a moonlit gondola ride or taste the original Bellini at Harry's Bar. Or just wander. No matter where you go, you'll find history, beauty and romance.

RomeRome is the capital city of Italy and of the Lazio region. It is located in the central-western portion of the Italian peninsula, where the river Aniene joins the Tiber.
According to legend, the city of Rome was founded by the twins Romulus and Remus on April 21, 753 BC, but archaeological evidence supports the theory that Rome grew from pastoral settlements on the Palatine Hill , coalescing into a city in the 8th century BC.
Rome enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate. It is at its most comfortable from April through June, and from mid-September to October; in particular, the Roman ottobrate ("beautiful October day") are famously known as sunny and warm days.
The center of Rome is surrounded by some large green areas and opulent ancient villas, which are the remains of the crowns of villas which encircled the papal city. Most of them were largely destroyed by real estate speculation at the end of the 19th century.
Rome may not be the hippest of capitals, but for those who know the right places, it is possible to party all night. Romans go out late and the fun only really commences after dinner. The wine-bars and cafťs lying between Campo deí Fiori, Piazza Navona and Via della Pace are the places to be seen. Irish pubs are also popular with Italians and expats, and can be a good place for a fun and informal night out.
Ingredients and dishes vary by region. There are many significant regional dishes that have become both national and regional. Cheese and wine are also a major part of the cuisine, playing different roles both regionally and nationally with their many variations. Coffee and more specifically espresso has become highly important to the cultural cuisine of Italy.
