Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.

There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Palatine Hill, make a trip to Trevi Fountain, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Peter's Basilica, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza Navona.

For where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Rome attractions planner.
