Rome

— 4 nights

Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Colosseum and Vatican Museums will appeal to history buffs. Get some cultural insight at Pantheon and Piazza Navona. Go for a jaunt from Rome to Tivoli to see Villa d'Este about 48 minutes away. There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, delve into the distant past at Palatine Hill, pause for some serene contemplation at Santa Maria in Trastevere, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola.
