weekend in Rome - the travel expert visit the Colosseum

Weekend in Rome, 21st January, Flights & 4 Star Hotel, 3 Nights, €199!

A weekend in Rome is a great idea at any time of year. No matter how many times you visit you can’t help but marvel at its beauty. 

You would want to be made of stone if Rome did not impress you. There are ancient wonders at every corner – The Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, I could go on and on. You could spend a week here and not see everything, but a weekend in Rome should allow you to see many of the highlights and soak up the atmosphere of this great city.

Rome is a walkable city and many of the top attractions are close together, however, it is important that you pre-book entrance tickets to the top attractions in advance. I also recommend pre booking a city tour on your first day to get your bearings – the Vespa tour or golf cart tour are just some of my favourites.

Winter or Spring is a great time to book a weekend in Rome  – temperatures are ideal for sightseeing and there are less crowds around – airfares and hotel prices are cheaper too! Aer Lingus and Ryanair fly twice daily on most days from Dublin airport, and there is a twice weekly flight from Cork airport with Ryanair.


I found return flights from Dublin for €59 from Dublin and €120 from Cork, departing Saturday the 21st of January for three nights. A three-night stay at the 4-star Hotel Principessa Isabella is only €140 per person including breakfast – so you can enjoy a weekend in Rome for less than €200 per person! 


There are many other hotel choices to choose from. The popular Hotel Capo d´África – Colosseo is €202 per person for a three night stay, or the 5-star NH Collection Palazzo Cinquecento is €335. Check out some of my recommendations on where to stay in Rome here:
