Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Vatican Museums and Musei Capitolini. Get some historical perspective at Colosseum and Palatine Hill. Get out of town with these interesting Rome side-trips: Tivoli (Villa Adriana & Villa d'Este). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at St. Peter's Basilica, don't miss a visit to Spanish Steps, take a stroll through Trastevere, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Catacombe di San Callisto.
