Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Visit Colosseum and Pantheon for their historical value. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Roman Forum and Centro Storico Associazione Centro Storico. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rome: Gelateria Naturale Polo Nord (in Fiumicino) and Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica (in Ostia Antica). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica Papale di Santa Maria Maggiore, pause for some serene contemplation at Abbey of St. Paul Outside the Walls, steep yourself in history at St. Peter's Basilica, and make a trip to St. Peter's Square.

To see more things to do, photos, maps, and other tourist information, use the Rome day trip website.

Chicago, USA to Rome is an approximately 13-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Chicago to Rome. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Chicago in April: high temperatures in Rome hover around 69°F and lows are around 49°F.
