Hi Ed

What a wonderful birthday treat.

I would have a word with your GP / Respiratory Specialist to see if it's OK for you to fly....the cabin pressure may affect you.

Make sure you have you EU health card...they are free and give you the same health treatment as the locals are entitled to.

If all is well, go and enjoy yourself, Rome is a fantastic place to visit.

Keep all you medication in your hand luggage on the plane, and as for pills and a drink l wouldn't bother, drink plenty of water, and get up occasionally and have a walk up and down the aisle....flying is a great way to will love it .

Hi I can't add to Velvet's great advice. Rome is a wonderful place and I have been there twice. Make sure you get to see the Vatican and do the tour - it is marvellous. Watch the cars as the drivers drive like lunatics! x
