Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Rome is known for historic sites, nightlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the ancient world of Colosseum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Vatican Museums, admire the local landmark of Trevi Fountain, and contemplate the long history of Palatine Hill.

For photos, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Rome trip itinerary website.
