Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
You've now added St. Peter's Basilica to your itinerary. On the 11th (Sun), ponder the design of Trevi Fountain. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at St. Peter's Basilica, pause for some photo ops at La Pieta, then appreciate the history behind St. Peter's Basilica, then delve into the distant past at Palatine Hill, and finally explore the ancient world of Colosseum.
