Rome

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 plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the ancient world of Colosseum, admire the striking features of Pantheon, contemplate the long history of Roman Forum, and explore the world behind art at Galleria Borghese.

To find photos, reviews, maps, and tourist information, go to the Rome holiday builder website.

Montreal, Canada to Rome is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Montreal to Rome due to the time zone difference.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to take a train to Naples.
