Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Galleria Borghese and Musei Capitolini. Duomo di Orvieto and Piazza Navona are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta Spoleto (in Spoleto), Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica (in Ostia Antica) and Pozzo di San Patrizio (in Orvieto). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Colosseum, admire the masterpieces at Sistine Chapel, contemplate the long history of Palatine Hill, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Peter's Basilica.

To see maps, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Rome trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Rome can reach 73°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
