Rome, the “Eternal City,” is a thriving metropolis offering the best in art, culture and architecture that dates back 2,500 years. Visitors to this amazing city will be charmed by the laid-back people and awed by the one-of-a-kind landmarks that provide a little insight into what Roman life was like during the Ancient times, the Middles Ages and the Renaissance periods.
First stop: Ancient Rome, where the Colossium and the Roman Forum are located. Browse the world’s largest art collection at the Vatican Museum, and visit St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world. Tour the Pantheon, enjoy the beauty of the Piazza Navoa and admire Michelangelo’s famous ceiling in the Sistine Chapel. Before departing, you’ll want to throw a coin in the famous Trevi Fountain in hopes you’ll return some day.
When you’re ready to take a break from sightseeing, sip on a cappuccino in one of many quaint sidewalk cafes or go shopping for the perfect gift or souvenir. You’ll most likely find that one day is not enough time to see it all, so when planning your trip, consider a pre- or post-hotel stay or a cruise tour, which will allow extra time to explore Rome and the surrounding areas.
