Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Sun): ponder the design of Trevi Fountain, admire the striking features of Pantheon, contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza Navona, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa di San Sebastiano al Palatino, and finally delve into the distant past at Palatine Hill. Keep things going the next day: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Santa Maria in Trastevere, steep yourself in history at Roman Forum, and then explore the ancient world of Colosseum.

Italy is a land of high fashion, fine art, exquisite architecture, luxury sports cars, outstanding cuisine--and an insatiable taste for "la dolce vita." It's also home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites in the world, making it an ideal place for your next holiday. The country boasts a varied landscape of mountain ranges, alpine lakes, and coastal towns, so it's no wonder travelers often refer to it as the bel paese (beautiful country). With so many places to visit, visitors often have a difficult time planning their itinerary. The smaller villages each feature a distinct character and a blend of architecture, art, and cuisine. In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond.
