Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.

Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cupola di San Pietro, appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza del Campidoglio, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St. Louis of the French, and steep yourself in history at Le Domus Romane di Palazzo Valentini.
