Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Palatine Hill and Vatican Museums. Head to Via Condotti and Fratelli Bassetti S.R.L.for plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Tivoli (Villa Adriana & Villa d'Este). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza Navona, hunt for treasures at Porta Portese, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Peter's Basilica, and admire the landmark architecture of Pantheon.

For other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Rome itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. August in Rome sees daily highs of 38°C and lows of 23°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
