Rome
Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Vatican Museums and Galleria Borghese. Get some cultural insight at Colosseum and Pantheon. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Peter's Basilica, stop by Antica Caciara Trasteverina, explore the ancient world of Palatine Hill, and take in the exciting artwork at Art Studio Cafe.

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.
Get some cultural insight at Piazza San Marco and Basilica di San Marco. Let the collections at Doge's Palace and Peggy Guggenheim Collection capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Canal Grande, look for gifts at Artigianato d'Arte di Vianello Mauro, view the masterpieces at San Marco 801, and enjoy breathtaking views from St Mark's Campanile.

For where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Venice trip planner.
