Rome

Rome
Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Colosseum and Pantheon. Step out of the city life by going to Catacombs of Saint Callixtus and Scuba & Snorkeling. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, make a trip to Roman Forum, stop by Trastevere, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St. Louis of the French.

For maps, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Rome tour itinerary planning app .
