Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Wed): ponder the design of Trevi Fountain, admire the landmark architecture of Pantheon, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St. Louis of the French, then contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, and finally explore the ancient world of Colosseum. On the next day, admire the striking features of Vatican Museums, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza Navona, then don't miss a visit to Roman Forum, and finally delve into the distant past at Palatine Hill.
