Rome
Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Vatican Museums and Galleria Borghese. Get some cultural insight at Via Condotti and Trastevere. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Peter's Basilica, view the masterpieces at I Colori di Dentro di Maria Grazia Luffarelli, get to know the fascinating history of Piazza Navona, and pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Serra.

To find maps, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Rome trip planner .

Sao Paulo, Brazil to Rome is an approximately 15-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and train. Traveling from Sao Paulo to Rome, you'll lose 4 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Sao Paulo in January, expect Rome to be much colder, temps between 15°C and 4°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sun) so you can catch the train to Florence.

Considered a cultural, artistic, and architectural jewel of Italy, Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.
Do your shopping at M.G. Design and I Mosaici Di Lastrucci. Museum-lovers will appreciate Academy Of Florence Art Gallery and Limbo Art Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Castello del Trebbio (in Santa Brigida) and Silvia Tanganelli (in Siena). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, take an in-depth tour of Basilica di Santa Croce, shop like a local with Scarpelli Mosaici, and admire the masterpieces at Gallerie Degli Uffizi.
