View of Tiber & St Peters Cathedral, Rome, Italy

Rome

Spectacularly poised between the ancient world and the new; a long weekend to Rome can be likened to visiting an open museum.

Aside from exploring the superb ensembles of exuberant architecture strewn throughout the city, Rome also plays host to a bustling hub of cosmopolitan cafes and restaurants, galleries, and designer boutiques.

Also worth a visit is the scenic town of Tivoli. Easily located less than an hour’s drive east of Rome, it offers a great addition to a long weekend to Rome.

Katie Benden

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.

Kate Hitchen

My travels were first inspired by my love of the UK, which I take as much pleasure in exploring as countries far and wide. For me, travel is all about the adventure, the people I meet and the food I sample along the way. In fact, I am never happier than when I’m cycling, trekking or simply eating my way through a country! My heart and head regularly pull me east, notably to India but I may also be found wandering through the galleries and piazzas of Italy or daydreaming about fresh ceviche in the far west.
