Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Change things up with a short trip to Villa d'Este in Tivoli (about 48 minutes away). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Colosseum, don't miss a visit to St. Peter's Basilica, take in the spiritual surroundings of Vatican Museums, and explore the world behind art at Galleria Borghese.
