Rome

Rome ©
Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Centro Storico Associazione Centro Storico and Chiesa del Gesu. Attractions like Colosseum and Trevi Fountain make great kid-friendly stops. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Abbey of St. Paul Outside the Walls, contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, don't miss a visit to Roman Forum, and explore the galleries of Vatican Museums.

For where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Rome online trip planner .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. In October in Rome, expect temperatures between 26°C during the day and 15°C at night. You will have some time to spend on the 23rd (Wed) before leaving for Sorrento.

Sorrento

A lovely town easily accessible from almost anywhere in the country, Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples and sits right on the Amalfi Drive.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Duomo di Sant'Andrea and Centro Storico Ravello. Explore hidden gems such as Speed Boats Tours and Piazza Tasso. Venture out of the city with trips to Cloister del Paradiso (in Amalfi), Duomo di Ravello (in Ravello) and Fornillo (in Positano). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St Francis Church and Convent, take in the waterfront at Marina Grande - Antico Borgo Marinaro, appreciate the views at Il Vallone dei Mulini, and view the masterpieces at Art & Craft Gallery.
