Rome, Italy

Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica and Castel Romano Designer Outlet. Do your shopping at Valmontone Outlet and Antica Caciara Trasteverina. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Vatican Museums, don't miss a visit to Trevi Fountain, steep yourself in history at Palatine Hill, and take a stroll through Via del Corso.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Rome vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Italy is a land of high fashion, fine art, exquisite architecture, luxury sports cars, outstanding cuisine--and an insatiable taste for "la dolce vita." It's also home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites in the world, making it an ideal place for your next holiday. The country boasts a varied landscape of mountain ranges, alpine lakes, and coastal towns, so it's no wonder travelers often refer to it as the bel paese (beautiful country). With so many places to visit, visitors often have a difficult time planning their itinerary. The smaller villages each feature a distinct character and a blend of architecture, art, and cuisine. In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond. The country's cities and seaside resorts are cosmopolitan powerhouses with museums, galleries, restaurants, shops, open-air markets, and pedestrian-friendly historic areas.
