Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
On the 6th (Fri), explore the ancient world of Colosseum. On your second day here, explore the ancient world of Palatine Hill, don't miss a visit to Piazza Navona, then contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, then explore the ancient world of Pantheon, and finally ponder the design of Trevi Fountain.

Plan my trip to Rome with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Istanbul, Turkey to Rome is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also do a combination of shuttle and flight; or drive. The time zone difference when traveling from Istanbul to Rome is minus 2 hours.
