Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Get a sense of the local culture at Colosseum and Palatine Hill. Vatican Museums and Galleria Borghese will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Sabbianera Super Beach in Anguillara Sabazia (about 46 minutes away). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Trastevere, contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, get to know the fascinating history of Centro Storico Associazione Centro Storico, and stop by L'Artigianato.

For where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Rome vacation planning tool.
