Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Colosseum and Campo de' Fiori. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Antica Caciara Trasteverina and Biciclettaro. There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Pantheon, look for gifts at Vertecchi, contemplate the long history of Palatine Hill, and take a stroll through Trastevere.

To find where to stay, reviews, photos, and tourist information, use the Rome trip itinerary builder tool.
