Rome— 4 nights
Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.Kids will appreciate attractions like Colosseum and Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Peter's Basilica, admire the landmark architecture of Pantheon, explore the world behind art at Borghese Gallery, and make a trip to Spanish Steps.
To find where to stay, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Rome sightseeing planner.
If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
