Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Church of St. Louis of the French and San Pietro in Vincoli. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Palatine Hill and Colosseum. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Vatican Museums, appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza Navona, admire the local landmark of Trevi Fountain, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Clement Basilica.
