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 6th (Tue), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola, ponder the design of Trevi Fountain, delve into the distant past at Pantheon, make a trip to Piazza Navona, then steep yourself in history at St. Peter's Basilica, and finally take in panoramic vistas at Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: delve into the distant past at Colosseum, then explore the ancient world of Palatine Hill, then admire the masterpieces at Galleria Borghese, and finally don't miss a visit to Spanish Steps.
