Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Rome is known for historic sites, nightlife, museums, classes, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Colosseum, appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza Navona, don't miss a visit to Spanish Steps, and admire the local landmark of Trevi Fountain.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Rome itinerary planning site .

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. In March, daily temperatures in Rome can reach 19°C, while at night they dip to 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.

Covering 44 hectares (110 acres) in the city center of Rome, the wall-enclosed sovereign state of Vatican City is one of the most famous religious sites worldwide, serving as the papal residence and home of the Roman Catholic church.
St. Peter's Square (Piazza San Pietro) has been added to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 14th (Thu): don't miss a visit to St. Peter's Square (Piazza San Pietro), then get to know the fascinating history of Vatican City, and then see the interesting displays at Stanze di Raffaello. Keep things going the next day: don't miss a visit to Sistine Chapel, explore the world behind art at Vatican Museums, pause for some photo ops at La Pieta, then pause for some photo ops at Monument to Alexander VII, and finally contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica.
