Rome, Italy

— 12 nights

Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Rome is known for historic sites, nightlife, and museums. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: explore the ancient world of Colosseum, steep yourself in history at Palatine Hill, get to know the fascinating history of Piazza Navona, and don't miss a visit to Spanish Steps.

For photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Rome day trip planning website.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Rome is an approximately 14-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from Rio de Janeiro to Rome.

Brasilia, Brazil

— 8 nights

Capital of Hope

Although it lacks the cultural flair of Rio de Janeiro and the massive urban sprawl of Sao Paulo, Brasilia holds a fascinating place in the tapestry of Brazil.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brasilia: Brazlandia (Chapada Imperial, Santuario Menino Jesus, &more), Flona - Floresta Nacional de Brasilia (in Taguatinga) and Casa Dom Inacio de Loyola (in Abadiania). And it doesn't end there: admire the striking features of Catedral Metropolitana, examine the collection at Experiences Library, stroll around Parque da Cidade Sarah Kubitschek, and ponder the world of politics at Itamaraty Palace.
