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 Arcibasilica di San Giovanni in Laterano and Duomo di Orvieto. Colosseum and Piazza Navona will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Rome to go to Marmore and see Cascata delle Marmore, which is approximately 1h 25 min away. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Pietro in Vincoli, explore the world behind art at Galleria Borghese, steep yourself in history at Roman Forum, and identify plant and animal life at Parco Natura e Fattoria Didattica Voloalto.
