Rome — 3 nights

Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Colosseum and St. Peter's Basilica will appeal to history buffs. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Arcibasilica di San Giovanni in Laterano and Centro Storico Associazione Centro Storico. Change things up with a short trip to Parco Archeologico di Ostia Antica in Ostia Antica (about 42 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Cupola di San Pietro, contemplate the long history of Villa Borghese, explore the ancient world of Pantheon, and get to know the fascinating history of Piazza Navona.

For where to stay, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Rome trip planner.

Tampa, USA to Rome is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Tampa to Rome due to the time zone difference.

Venice — 3 nights

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.

Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Doge's Palace, wander the streets of Dorsoduro, snap pictures at Ponte dell'Accademia, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari.
