days
Rome

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Visit Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Rome side-trips: Tivoli (Villa Adriana & Villa d'Este). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Colosseum, admire the striking features of Pantheon, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sistine Chapel, and delve into the distant past at Palatine Hill.

To see where to stay, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, read our Rome vacation planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Rome can reach 74°F, while at night they dip to 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
