Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Kick off your visit on the 29th (Wed): admire the local landmark of Trevi Fountain, explore the ancient world of Pantheon, then pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St. Louis of the French, then contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, and finally delve into the distant past at Colosseum. Keep things going the next day: explore the world behind art at Vatican Museums, then get to know the fascinating history of Piazza Navona, then contemplate the long history of Roman Forum, and finally steep yourself in history at Palatine Hill.
