However, there are so many things to do in Rome for family, that a family holiday in Rome might just turn out to be a very exciting one.

Tales of gladiators and ferocious lions, at the Colosseum, a gladiator class from a master, imagining ancient Chariot races at Circus maxima, exploring the spooky Catacombs, visiting easily recognizable landmarks like the Pantheon and Trevi fountain, or the impressive St Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s square will keep the kids enthralled.

Italy is my favourite part of Europe. I found all top brands on HolidayRewardz offering holidays to Italy. And they offered me a free SIM Card just to inquire via their platform. So, its a win win situation - both for the travel company and for the customer, isn't it ?

We booked a package to Italy via Thomas Cook and luckily submitted our inquiry via HolidayRewardz. So, while TC gave us an awesome holiday deal, HolidayRewardz topped it up with a free European SIM Card just to route the inquiry through them. I simply loved it !
Ankita Gurnam, Jallandhar
I have to admit, the free SIM Card was the deal clincher. I would have gone directly to Thomas Cook to book the European holiday but I simply had to pick up the free SIM Card. So I inquired via HolidayRewardz and booked via Thomas Cook. Two birds with one stone :-)

I loved the SIM Card Experience. It worked across Europe and the data speed was awesome. I am so glad I used HolidayRewardz in the booking process. I'd recommend it to all my friends & family. You add a lot of value to the holiday booking process

We booked via a local franchisee of MMT in Rajkot, but chose to submit the inquiry via holidayswallet because they were offering a free SIM Card. It is a really valuable goodie when you are traveling in Europe which has expensive data. We found it a good deal, so did my friends.
Leena Patel, Rajkot
Choosing the best package for Europe is never easy. HolidayRewardz made it easy with all the top brands available in a single place. And the offer of a free SIM Card was so enticing, that I inquired from there and booked from Thomas Cook. The SIM Card worked really well too
