Eternal City

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 Cupola di San Pietro and Piazza del Campidoglio. Bring the kids along to Pantheon and Santa Maria Sopra Minerva. It doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Peter's Basilica and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Baldacchino di San Pietro, di Bernini.
