Rome — 2 nights

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
On the 14th (Sat), take in the spiritual surroundings of Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola, admire the local landmark of Trevi Fountain, admire the landmark architecture of Pantheon, don't miss a visit to Piazza Navona, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Peter's Basilica, and finally take in panoramic vistas at Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Colosseum, then delve into the distant past at Palatine Hill, then explore the world behind art at Galleria Borghese, and finally don't miss a visit to Spanish Steps.

To plan Rome vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Venice — 2 nights

Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
Kick off your visit on the 16th (Mon): admire the striking features of Doge's Palace, take in the views from Ponte dei Sospiri, get to know the fascinating history of Piazza San Marco, then pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica di San Marco, and finally enjoy breathtaking views from St Mark's Campanile. On the 17th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo (San Zanipolo), then take in the views from Ponte di Rialto, then contemplate the waterfront views at Canal Grande, and finally take a stroll through Cannaregio.
