Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like St. Peter's Square and Villa Borghese. Visit Colosseum and St. Peter's Basilica for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rome: Castello Orsini-Odescalchi (in Bracciano), Orvieto (Orvieto Underground, Duomo di Orvieto, &more) and Castello di Torre Alfina (in Torre Alfina). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Santa Maria della Vittoria, get to know the fascinating history of Piazza Navona, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica Papale San Paolo fuori le Mura, and admire the landmark architecture of Le Domus Romane di Palazzo Valentini.

Pompeii has been a tourist destination for more than 250 years.
Step out of the city life by going to Vesuvio National Park and Fishing Charters & Tours. Pompeii Archaeological Park and Paestum Ruins are good opportunities to explore the local culture.

There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Pontificio Santuario della Beata Maria Vergine del Santo Rosario di Pompei, delve into the distant past at Forum, steep yourself in history at Via delle Tombe, and admire the striking features of Casa degli Amorini Dorati.

Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Piazza San Marco and San Giorgio Maggiore. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Centro Storico di Venezia and Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. Get out of town with these interesting Venice side-trips: Padua (Battistero del Duomo, Basilica di Santa Giustina, &more), Centro Storico di Treviso (in Treviso) and Oasi Cervara - Nature Sanctuary (in Quinto di Treviso). The adventure continues: deepen your knowledge of military history at Venetian Arsenal, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Scuola Grande di San Rocco, admire the striking features of Basilica di San Marco, and examine the collection at Doge's Palace.

Start your trip to Venice by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
