Rome— 16 nights
Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.Change things up with a short trip to Villa d'Este in Tivoli (about 48 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: explore the ancient world of Colosseum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Pantheon, steep yourself in history at Palatine Hill, and make a trip to St. Peter's Basilica.
