Rome

— 7 nights

Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Get some historical perspective at Castello Orsini-Odescalchi and Necropoli della Banditaccia. Get a sense of the local culture at Viterbo Historic Centre and Museo Storico Piana delle Orme. Venture out of the city with trips to Chiesa di San Pietro (in Tuscania), Museo Nazionale Tarquiniense (in Tarquinia) and Ente Parco Naturale Regionale dei Monti Lucretili (in Palombara Sabina). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Palazzo dei Papi, stop by Il Negozietto, contemplate the long history of Piazza del Duomo, and make a trip to Rocca dei Papi.
