Here is a lovely long weekend (leaving on a Friday returning on a Monday), to Rome from Manchester. It is from 6th-9th January, so just after Christmas, so forget getting your other half rubbish Christmas presents they won't use, and get a lovely city break instead!

The hotel is the beautiful Hotel Villa San Lorenza Maria, which has amazing reviews. The rate also includes breakfast and it is a short walk from the Termini Station, but also right next to a metro which is ideal for exploring Rome. You'll stay here for 3 nights.

I haven't included transfers but at the cheapest these can be 1.50Euro if you don't mind walking some distance from the airport to the train station, or there are a wide range of buses such as the Terravision buses which are around 4Euro pp each way which go straight to the station and you can walk to the hotel from there. Alternatively, taxis are available but they will obviously be more expensive.

**Breakdown**

3 nights in the Hotel Villa San Lorenza Maria £135.77 book at hotels.com

Flights bookable at Ryanair £87.96.

Total: £223.73/£111.86pp

Thanks, that is useful to know for Spain, however this deal is for Rome, in Italy. It is likely to be cold there too though.

I went to Rome in January this year - weather was lovely (very hot actually) and 3 days was enough to do all the main attractions. Don't forget to include the city tax, payable to your accommodation on arrival and is per person per night. We bought the bus tickets on the plane to make life easy.

Think I paid about £250 for 2 of us for 3 days, flights from Liverpool and decent self catering accommodation.

Edit:

Eating out is EXPENSIVE. 'Attractions' are EXPENSIVE (but to can buy a pass beforehand which gets you fast track entry into some of the places). There are lots of lucky lucky men everywhere who tirelessly try to flog junk and can be a bit inappropriate. Didn't bother us but might do for other people.

Everywhere is within walking distance if you are relatively fit and heathy. We did a lot of stuff on day one in 17c heat with large back packs full of stuff. And I was pregnant.

Well worth going.

You did really well on the weather for January. When I went in January en-route back from Bali/Australia one year, it was freezing (or perhaps it was just that we'd been in hot weather for 4 weeks)!

Eating out is as expensive as you make it and a lot of the main sights are free. Yes you have to pay € 7 to go in the collaseum but it is more impressive from the outside and Vatican, pantheon and main squares are free to roam. Sitting in a piazza with a gelato is not expensive and a great way to spend the afternoon. You can spend a fortune if you want though.

The colosseum is more than that, I think it was €12 each. And the Vatican museums, the basilica, the forum all cost more €€€. The metro/tube wasn't too bad. Why bother going if you're not going to see all the stuff? Yes, you can sit with an expensive ice cream on a bench...but you can also do that in the UK. I also think you'd struggle eating just ice cream for 4 days. :D

No, should have said 17c. Typo. Felt a lot hotter than that in in the sun!

As a tip, if anyone does book it may be worth contacting the colosseum website directly as they state "free admission on the first Sunday of the month. On this occasion it is not possible to make reservation".

So, the first Sunday of the month is free entry, you can't reserve tickets and given that the 1st January is the first Sunday, and they are closed, the 8th is technically the first Sunday that it is open so it may be free. There you go, free entrance. Details here

When I went it was as a backpacker on a budget but I didn't even notice the amount I was paying for attractions as it was well worth it. I always "treat" myself to one good meal per city on a backpacking type trip but Rome was definitely one of the most expensive for food cities I have been to - that being said, I found it easy enough to find cheap "fast food" type places ie a slice of pizza for 2 or 3 Euro so if you're okay with that you don't have to spend THAT much.

The Vatican is free, the museum €15 and is a full day, trevi fountain, Spanish steps all free. I don't just sit on benches eating ice cream I spend around two months a year in Roma and was just making the point that it doesn't have to be a bank breaking trip

if you got time to spare (but with just 3 days it is a bit difficult), Ostia antica and the modern Ostia are well worth a visit. simply catch the train and get some proper winter sun by the sea while visiting a proper Roman town

Why is this hot? I would normally expect to pay this price but for a citybreak in the summer on Ryanair. Not for one in the depths of January when nobody travels as they have no money after Christmas.

Villa Borghese is free and wonderful. After a few hectic days in busy Rome it's the antidote.

Any good with kids. 1 year old and 2.5 year old? Or is it too busy

Thanks, that is useful to know for Spain, however this deal is for Rome, in Italy. It is likely to be cold there too though.
