Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Piazza del Popolo, Piazza Venezia and Colle Capitolino. On the 3rd (Tue), get great views at Colle Capitolino, delve into the distant past at Colosseum, delve into the distant past at Palatine Hill, steep yourself in history at Roman Forum, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza Venezia, and finally make a trip to Piazza Navona. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Vatican Museums, don't miss a visit to St. Peter's Basilica, then explore the world behind art at Galleria Borghese, and finally don't miss a visit to Piazza del Popolo.
