Experiencing best summer attractions with cheap flights to Rome
If you want to experience the very best of the Italian capital, then consider booking cheap flights to Rome and visit the city during the summer months between April and October. This is the time when Rome indeed comes into its own, with the Centro Storico becoming one big piazza and action spilling all around. The Eternal City offers ample opportunities to enjoy summer attractions and day trips.
Some of the best summer attractions worth visiting in Rome include Villa Borghese, Villa Celimontana, Via Appia Antica, Roman Forum and Palatine, Ninfa and Tivoli. Arts aficionado visiting Rome makes a beeline to see Villa Borghese. It is one of the great private art collections in the world. The villa houses important collections including Titian’s Sacred and Profane Love, a gaggle of Caravaggios and Bernini’s sublime sculpture Apollo and Daphne. The landscaped gardens in the villa are greatly appealing, particularly during the summer. Villa Celimontana is a big draw with the visitors here. The villa houses a collection of sculptures, and has a leafy park and formal garden on the Celio hill south of the Colosseum. The gardens inside the villa include fountains and an obelisk. The park enthralls the visitors by hosting jazz performances throughout the summer.
If you want to visit the mansions of the rich and famous then consider strolling down Via Appia Antica. This ancient Roman consular road for over past 2,000 years has been Rome’s Hampstead, housing the country-in-the-city mansions of the rich and famous. This road is lined with a number of pagan and Christian sites and underground catacombs. You can even consider hiring a bicycle to explore this area.
