Rome

— 4 nights

Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Do your shopping at Via Condotti and Elena Kihlman Designer Concept Store. Colosseum and Pantheon are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Vatican Museums, ponder the design of Trevi Fountain, don't miss a visit to Roman Forum, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Peter's Basilica.

City of Romance

Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
Head to Piazza delle Erbe and T Fondaco Dei Tedeschifor some retail therapy. Get a sense of the local culture at Doge's Palace and Basilica di San Marco. Explore Venice's surroundings by going to Padua (Ragione Palace, Piazza delle Erbe, &more), Verona (Basilica di San Zeno Maggiore, Museo di Castelvecchio, &more) and La Stramba (in Burano).
