Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Explore hidden gems such as Church of St. Louis of the French and Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola. Change things up with these side-trips from Rome: Stabilimento Balneare Amerigo (in Terracina), Sabaudia (Sea Horse Club & La Bufalara Beach) and Sabbianera Super Beach (in Anguillara Sabazia). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at St. Peter's Basilica, delve into the distant past at Colosseum, explore the world behind art at Vatican Museums, and take an in-depth tour of Musei Capitolini.
