Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Get some historical perspective at Colosseum and Vatican Museums. Step off the beaten path and head to Villa d'Este and Centro Storico Associazione Centro Storico. Get out of town with these interesting Rome side-trips: Santuario Francescano del Presepe (in Greccio), Cascata delle Marmore (in Marmore) and Civita di Bagnoregio (in Civita di Bagnoregio). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cupola di San Pietro, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli, contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, and explore the ancient world of Palatine Hill.

In August, daily temperatures in Rome can reach 90°F, while at night they dip to 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
