Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
We've included these beaches for you: La Bufalara Beach and Stabilimento Balneare Amerigo. Museum-lovers will get to explore Le Domus Romane di Palazzo Valentini and Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo. Venture out of the city with trips to Orte Sotterranea (in Orte), Villa d'Este (in Tivoli) and Cattedrale di Terracina (in Terracina). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Centro Storico Associazione Centro Storico, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Clement Basilica, appreciate the history behind Monumento a Vittorio Emanuele II, and see the interesting displays at Musei del Castello di Alviano.
