Compare Cheap Perth to Rome Flights
It’s time to answer the call of the Roman Empire. Rome is a city like no other and it is a destination that demands to be explored and uncovered. Begin by roaming its ancient sites that lend insight into the city’s past as the epicentre of a juggernaut Empire, and then venture to the Vatican to understand the magnetism of this modern-day powerhouse. Get lost in this graceful city, discovering a new treasure around every corner, be it a tucked-away trattoria, an elegant church, hole-in-the-wall aperitivo bar, or a gelateria selling oversized scoops of bacio, limone or stracciatella. Carve out time in your day to toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain for good luck, pencil in an afternoon of people-watching from a perch on the Spanish Steps, or channel your inner gladiator and gaze around in awe while inside the depths of the Colosseum.
Finding cheap flights from Perth to Rome is quick and easy with Webjet’s Deal Finder. You can compare hundreds of flights based on airline, stopovers, seating class, and more.
The best time to visit Rome
As Rome is one of Europe’s most frequented destinations, there are always some form of crowd. These crowds peak during festive celebrations and religious holidays - Christmas, New Years, Easter - and during summer, from June to August. Rome can swelter in summer so make sure to pack a wide-brimmed hat, sunscreen and floaty clothes if you plan on hitting the pavement and discovering the city by foot. The crowds begin to dwindle towards the end of September and this time, plus October, is one of the best times to visit Rome. For the cheapest flights from Perth to Rome, look to travel between October and April.

Things to do in Rome
Rome is a city of landmarks and monuments; there is almost one around every corner. Some, however, rank more highly on must-see lists. The Trevi Fountain is one such to-dos. According to legend, the fortune of visitors is determined by how many coins they toss in the fountains. One coin represents a return to Rome; two coins is a new romance; three coins is marriage. Whichever future you’re chasing, be sure to toss the coins from your right hand and over the left shoulder. Vatican City sits in the heart of Rome and is easily accessible to tourists. Stroll through the Vatican Museums to see the priceless works including Michelangelo’s frescoed Sistine Chapel, the Raphael Rooms, the spiral staircase and other hidden treasures. Gaze upwards while inside the Pantheon, mosey between ruins at Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum, sip an espresso at a cafe in Piazza Navona, or picnic on the grounds of Villa Borghese. Perhaps the most illustrious of Rome’s landmarks however is the Colosseum. This awe-inspiring stadium is an icon of not just Rome, but of Italy. It is undoubtedly one of Rome’s most popular sites, drawing crowds who come to walk on the ground once frequented by gladiators and emperors.
