Head to Rome and stay three nights at a 4-star hotel, with return flights, for £159 per person. This offer from Broadway Travel saves up to 34% on the regular price.
The Daily Telegraph reckons that this is one of the best times of year to visit Rome, saying: "In winter, the marble and travertine edges are sharper, the colours are more vivid and the low-flying sun turns Rome into a huge baroque stage set." Plus, fewer tourists means shorter queues at the city's biggest attractions, such as the Colosseum and the Roman Forum.
The offer also includes daily buffet breakfast, free Wi-Fi and a bottle of wine in the room on arrival. Travel is available on 6 December; 17, 24 January, 2014, from Edinburgh. Travel from London Gatwick, London Stansted and Manchester on select dates 13 November-24 February for £129 per person. Click here for more information, dates and airports.
Guests will stay at the Executive Style Hotel, a 4-star property a couple of minutes' walk from Villa Doria Pamphili, where you'll find the city's largest landscaped park. The nearest Metro station, Cornelia, is a short walk away, which provides easy access to the Vatican and the rest of the Eternal City.
The hotel is built within the walls of a 17th-century monastery and is surrounded by landscaped gardens. All rooms have satellite TVs and Wi-Fi.
Checked luggage is from £35 per bag and return transfers are from £25 per person.
