When In Rome

Woo, finally booked my holiday and we're going to... Rome!

Because of uni I have to take my breaks in the summer holidays (the expensive time!), but the boyfriend and I found some really good city break deals with British Airways to Rome and we got flights, a week in a hotel right in the centre of the city (with breakfast), and airport parking all for £352 so I'm chuffed about that.
