Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Rome is known for historic sites, nightlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the ancient world of Colosseum, contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, don't miss a visit to Spanish Steps, and admire the local landmark of Trevi Fountain.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Rome vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Bangkok, Thailand to Rome is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Bangkok to Rome due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Bangkok in October, you will find days in Rome are a bit cooler (26°C), and nights are much colder (15°C). Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Thu) so you can take a train to Florence.
