Valentine’s Day in Rome – AirBnb Overview

Why Rome?

Rome has been on my dream list long time. Capital of Italy, abounding with great culture, heritage sites and amazing food; pizza and pasta 😉

Do I have to mention that: Food = Love ?

Speaking about love, I recently read an article classifying Rome in Top 5 Cities, where 14th of February is celebrated. Actually, I wasn’t even surprised! It’s really romantic, and it’s got unique atmosphere which is even visible on photos from narrow streets with coffee shops, or next to beautiful fountains. Truly delightful!

 

Why AirBnb?

I am in love with Airbnb, so I have decided to do an overview, and see prices for the dates 12.02.2018 – 15.02.2018. Short city break, 3 nights, and Entire Houses to book in Italy. I will answer your question ahead: I know that there are many Tour Operators offering whole packages with hotels, transfers and all inclusive. I am not saying they’re better, worst or cheaper / more expensive.

I am just focusing on my small project: Design Your Journey Yourself 😀

That will include offers airbnb + cheap flights to the destinations.

Flights

As I am based in London, I have checked availability and prices of direct flights from right here. The exact days 12th of February – 15th of February 2018 are with airlines: Vueling and Ryanair.

£97  both ways

Airbnb accommodation

Prices that I have checked are for 3 nights, with all deposits, cleaning and fees, for 2 or more people as those are whole houses to rent. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got your second half or you’re independent, you can still enjoy the upcoming day! Invite your friends, family, and automatically overall cost per person will be smaller 🙂
