Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Colosseum and Piazza Navona. Museum-lovers will get to explore Vatican Museums and Capitoline Museums. Venture out of the city with trips to Tivoli (Villa Adriana & Villa d'Este). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at St. Peter's Basilica, get engrossed in the history at Museo Nazionale Etrusco di Villa Giulia, admire the masterpieces at Borghese Gallery, and steep yourself in history at Roman Forum.

To see traveler tips, photos, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Rome itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Malta, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Rome are 16°C, while nighttime lows are 4°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Tue) so you can go by car back home.
