Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Do your shopping at Paciotti Salumeria and Pati Jo' - Bra Fitting & Lingerie. Family-friendly places like Colosseum and Pantheon will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Rome side-trips: Acqua e Sale - Stabilimento Balneare (in Maccarese), Cascata delle Marmore (in Marmore) and Anguillara Sabazia (Giardino del lago & Sabbianera Super Beach). There's more to do: steep yourself in history at St. Peter's Basilica and stop by Antica Caciara Trasteverina.
