Rome

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Rome is known for historic sites, sightseeing, religious sites, museums, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Peter's Basilica, explore the world behind art at Borghese Gallery, make a trip to Spanish Steps, and contemplate the long history of Roman Forum.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, use the Rome trip itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Rome can reach 28°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
