Rome— 3 nights
Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Via Condotti and Antica Caciara Trasteverina. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Colosseum and St. Peter's Basilica. There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Palatine Hill, wander the streets of Trastevere, don't miss a visit to Piazza Navona, and steep yourself in history at Roman Forum.
