Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Museo Storico Piana delle Orme and Castello Odescalchi. Step off the beaten path and head to Museo Nazionale Tarquiniense and Chiesa di San Pietro. Change things up with these side-trips from Rome: Ente Parco Naturale Regionale dei Monti Lucretili (in Palombara Sabina), Il Negozietto (in Orvieto) and Lagustelli di Percile (in Percile). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Piazza del Duomo, wander the streets of Quartiere San Pellegrino, admire the landmark architecture of Rocca dei Papi, and get curious at Museo Geologico e delle Frane.

For other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Rome trip itinerary planning site .
