Rome

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Ostia Antica and Abbazia di San Paolo fuori le Mura. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Palatine Hill and Colosseum. Change things up with these side-trips from Rome: Tivoli (Villa d'Este & Villa Adriana). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Peter's Basilica, steep yourself in history at Roman Forum, get to know the fascinating history of Piazza Navona, and take in the spiritual surroundings of San Pietro in Vincoli.

For other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Rome vacation trip planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in March, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
