Top Things to Do and See

 

 

Colosseum

 

 

Dating back about 2000 years, the Colosseum is the most famous building to visit after your Melbourne to Rome flights. The structure looks almost as it did in Ancient Roman times when it was used for gladiator fights. Visitors with cheap flights Melbourne to Rome can walk through the Colosseum to learn more about its history and see how well preserved it is. With a central location in Rome, the Colosseum is a constant reminder of how much history surrounds the modernising city of Rome.

 

 

 

Vatican City

 

 

Vatican City makes up a walled portion of Rome and is considered to be the smallest country in the world. Vatican City is home to the Pope and is the hub of the Roman Catholic Church. Within Vatican City, visitors with Melbourne to Rome return flights can experience the famous St. Peter’s Basilica, which was built in an Italian Renaissance style. Several museums are also located in Vatican City, including the Sistine Chapel, which was painted by famous Italian artist Michelangelo. Take your passport with you because there is a passport control station as you enter Vatican City.

 

 

 

Pantheon

 

 

Like the Colosseum, the Pantheon dates back to the Ancient Roman Empire and is a must-see for visitors with flights Melbourne to Rome. It is considered to be the best preserved building from Ancient Rome and looks almost exactly as it did when it was built almost 2000 years ago. The Pantheon was created as a temple to the Roman gods. Its most recognisable feature for visitors with cheap flights to Rome from Melbourne is its tall dome ceiling that has a hole in the top, allowing light to fill up the building.

 

 

 

Trevi Fountain

 

 

The Trevi Fountain that you can see after your flights Melbourne to Rome was built in 1732 and offers a gorgeous Renaissance style to the area. However, before the Trevi Fountain was built, this spot was an important water source for thousands of years. While visiting the Trevi Fountain, it is tradition to throw coins over your shoulder. One coin means you’ll return to Rome someday, two coins means you’ll find romance, and three coins ensures you’ll get married in the future.

Visit Pompeii

 

 

Pompeii is a popular day trip to take when you book tickets to Rome from Melbourne. Pompeii became famous after it was covered in ash after the eruption of nearby Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Borghetto Flaminio Market

 

 

Each Sunday, this large market is held in Rome’s Piazza del Popolo. Vendors sell a variety of items, including antiques, vintage clothing, and souvenirs.

 

 

 

Go Wine Tasting

 

 

While Tuscany is Italy’s most famous wine region, there are plenty of vineyards within easy access of Rome as well. After your Melbourne to Rome flights, spend a day exploring the vineyards and tasting the local wines in the Lazio and Umbria regions around Rome.
