Safeguard your trip to Rome with a comprehensive and reliable travel insurance policy with Holiday Extras from only *

Rome, la città eterna. One of the most visited and best-recognised cities in the world, Rome is perhaps the melting-pot of culture and history which has stood the test of time for millennia. Walking through the city transports you through the ages; from the ancient remnants of the Forum, the Pantheon and the Colosseum, to Vatican City and all the way up to the modern city of Rome as a bastion of cosmopolitan Europe.

Picking the best holiday insurance policy for you

While the UK is still in the EU by the skin of its teeth, you still should be (metaphorically) wrapping up your holiday plans in cotton wool with a solid, European travel insurance policy. At Holiday Extras, our in-house insurance team along with our partners at TIF (Travel Insurance Facilities) have enhanced our existing two products (Single Trip and Annual Multi-Trip) with 4 new and improved levels of cover to perfectly match your holiday plans.

Single Trip or Annual Multi-Trip?

If this is your one big splash-out of the year, then a Single Trip policy might be right thing for you; they're incredibly affordable and actually do so much more for you than just cover you from A to B, and then from B back to A.

One of the most tempting things about booking a holiday to Italy is the flight time. At under 3 hours flying from the UK, it's a lot quicker than many train services in the UK! Depending on the frequency of your travel plans — in Italy or in Europe as a whole — you might want to consider taking out an Annual Multi-Trip policy that covers your jet-setter lifestyle! Below is another table giving you a taste of what both policies can offer you:

Single Trip Policies
Annual Multi-Trip Policies
Your trip can last up to 365 days but must start and end in the UK to be entirely valid Maximum trip duration varies depending on the policy: 22 days for Bronze, 31 days for Silver and Gold, 45 days for Platinum
Must be purchased before leaving the UK, i.e. before passing through security at the airport. Groups can benefit from an annual policy that does not require them to travel together, nor live together — that's just for family policies!
Anyone any age can travel — even under 18s can travel alone Under 18s must travel with an adult and you cannot travel on the policy if you are older than 79 years at the date of booking
With prices starting from just * With prices starting from just

Do I need holiday insurance for Italy?

Mamma mia! While the UK is just about still in Europe and you still have access to the EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) until Brexit, you still need a solid and reliable travel insurance policy behind you as a safety net in case something wrong should happen along the way that isn't covered by your EHIC, which has its limitations for medical treatment abroad. Read more here on our predictions on a post-Brexit UK.

Should the situation arise where you might need to claim on cancellation cover, medical insurance or baggage insurance, sorting out the right policy is imperative. Tailored around the overall cost of your holiday and any medical conditions you might have, having travel insurance in your back pocket will end up saving you a small fortune should something happen to you while travelling.

Top tourist attractions in Rome

1. The Colosseum

Standing for nearly two millennia, the Colosseum is arguably Italy's most iconic landmark and the most recognisable amphitheatre in the world. Built between 70-72 A.D. to entertain the Roman citizens and the Emperor himself, it used to be the stage for the gladiatorial games, drama, re-enactments and public executions. The games began to wane during the rise of Christianity where human death as a sport was weirdly considered unreligious.

2. The Trevi Fountain

Situated in the Trevi district of Rome, Italy's most iconic and most visited fountain has foundations that stretch way back to ancient times. Yet it was not until the early eighteenth century that Rome was gifted the fountain we know to this day; the Pope commissioned a new fountain to be built, and Nicola Salvi was its designer. An old tradition when visiting the fountain is to throw a coin over your shoulder into the water, where it is said if you wish you will return to Rome one day. Not many know this, but every night a colossal €3,000 is collected from the fountain and donated to Caritas, a charity dedicated to aiding the poor and homeless of Rome.
