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 Welcome to Rome and La Pieta. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Colosseum and Trevi Fountain. There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Pantheon, contemplate the long history of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, pause for some serene contemplation at Santa Maria in Trastevere, and make a trip to Arco di Costantino.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Rome trip simple and quick.

Getting from Milan to Rome by flight takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: take a train; or drive. When traveling from Milan in December, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Rome: temperatures range from °C by day to °C at night. On the 27th (Fri), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Florence.
