Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Pantheon, Roman Forum and Colosseum. St. Peter's Basilica and Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Centro Storico Associazione Centro Storico and Cupola di San Pietro. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Baldacchino di San Pietro, di Bernini, delve into the distant past at Forum of Augustus, pause for some serene contemplation at Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola, and don't miss a visit to Piazza Navona.

Plan a trip to Rome easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Asuncion, Paraguay to Rome is an approximately 19-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Asuncion to Rome due to the time zone difference. In April, Rome is slightly colder than Asuncion - with highs of 24°C and lows of 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to catch the train to Naples.
