Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
You'll explore and learn at Vatican Museums and Galleria Borghese. Colosseum and St. Peter's Basilica will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Pantheon, make a trip to Trevi Fountain, get to know the fascinating history of Piazza Navona, and steep yourself in history at Palatine Hill.
