Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Family-friendly places like Colosseum and Trevi Fountain will thrill your kids. There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Pantheon, take an unorthodox tour of Catacombs of Saint Callixtus, explore the world behind art at Vatican Museums, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Santa Maria in Trastevere.

To see ratings, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Rome road trip planner.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Rome is an approximately 19-hour flight. You'll gain 7 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Rome due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur in December, expect Rome to be cooler, temps between 16°C and 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel to Venice.
