Rome

The Eternal City

A description used in reference to its long life span and its continuance. Rome is the capital city of Italy, home to the Vatican City and the religious and political centre of the Roman Catholic church. It is situated in the central portion of the Italian Peninsula, on the Tiber River, approximately 24 km inland from the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Roman history dates back to 753 BC according to legend, the mythological founders of Rome were Romulus and Remus, the brothers were said to have been cared for by a she-wolf, that is the mascot of Rome. Its history has been influential in shaping the modern world, culturally, politically and artistically.

The flights from Auckland to Rome take over 27 hours, depending on the airline and transit points chosen. Contact your local Global Travel Network Agent to find the best possible airfares and suggestions to design your ideal holiday.

Rome became so powerful, largely due to the strength of its army. Their training was intense and disciplined, they practised vigorously, deliberately using weapons much heavier than those used in battle. They also had the finest armour and the greatest weapons. Hence the vast empire it conquered extending from Britain all the way to the Middle East.

Renowned for breathtaking architecture, Rome provides the location of 12 UNCESCO heritage sites. These include, the Coliseum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, St Peters Square and Navona Square. Originally believed to have been built as a temple for Roman Gods, the Pantheon is spectacular and considered an architectural masterpiece, thought to be one of the most well preserved buildings of Ancient Rome. The huge ampitheatre located in the centre of the Capital, known as the Coliseum was built for entertainment for Ancient Romans. It hosted gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as executions, animal hunts, mock battles and drama. It is partially ruined because of natural disasters such as earthquakes, as well as thieves breaking away pieces of this amazing structure to steal as souvenirs.

Other than history, visitors can enjoy Italian wine, sweets and pastries, artisan chocolate and gourmet food. Italian shoes are famous, as well as fashion clothing and beautifully hand painted ceramics.

The Consolidation team at GTN are excellent to deal with.  They are efficient and friendly, and when there has been queries with airlines or airfares, they have always sought answers and found solutions to the problem wherever possible.  The QuikTravel system is easy to use, as well as the additional information on the system around commissions, airline contacts, policies, as well as the summary of recent changes in fares & rules from airlines.  GTN is an excellent partner, and the small personal nature of the team is a good fit for our business

We have been with the GTN team since they first started and they are professional, caring, willing to assist with any query and will go above and beyond to find fares to suit, even when we have the most ridiculous of destinations. Even in the hardest of times, they reach out to each and every one of their agents to make sure we are ok. Thanks for your ongoing support team.
