Rome, Italy

Friday - - Travel -

With its breath­tak­ing ar­chi­tec­ture, squares and stat­ues and end­less pos­si­bil­i­ties for walk­ing hand in hand, Rome is quite sim­ply one of the most ro­man­tic cities in the world. Visit the Trevi Foun­tain and throw three coins in – the first for find­ing true love, the se­cond to stay in love, and the third to re­turn. En­joy din­ner at a quite tav­erna in Traste­vere; ex­plore the beau­ti­ful gar­dens of the Villa Borgh­ese; go shop­ping on the Via dei Con­dotti; and walk along the banks of the

River Tiber, ad­mir­ing the stun­ning views.

Where to stay: The turn-of-the­cen­tury Ho­tel Eden is movie star Tom Cruise’s favourite ho­tel – it’s where he and for­mer wife Ni­cole Kid­man spent their hon­ey­moon – and of­fers lux­ury and com­fort in a dis­creet set­ting. Rooms start from Dh1,168 a night. See www.dorch­ester­col­lec­

Get­ting there: Fly­ing time is 6 hours 30 min­utes. Emi­rates has re­turn flights to Rome from Dh2,925. See www.emi­
