Rome Post Trip

Discover the “Eternal City” at your leisure as you spend two nights in Italy’s timeless capital. History, art and architecture abound, from Roman ruins to Renaissance piazzas. Marvel at the grandeur of the Vatican, where St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel await. Stroll through the ancient Roman Forum and the Coliseum. Take time to walk up the Spanish Steps, toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain to ensure your return to Rome, or just spend a relaxing afternoon at a quiet outdoor café. Many attractions are within walking distance of your centrally located hotel.

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1
Begin your optional extension

Today’s opportunities in the Eternal City are endless. You might visit the Forum, the political and commercial center of ancient Rome when the empire was at its greatest power. Various emperors constructed the temples, monuments and other buildings here over a period of nine centuries. Today, you can still see the Curia where the Roman Senate met. Walk up Palatine Hill, where tradition says the first settlers of Rome built their huts under the direction of Romulus, and which was later the home of Caligula, Nero, Tiberius and Domitian. Or you can step out of Italy while you’re still in Rome with a visit to the Vatican, an independent state. The Vatican museums are filled with magnificent art that goes far beyond such well-known pieces as the Michelangelo’s Pieta and Sistine Chapel ceiling. After a full day of independent exploration, enjoy one of Rome’s fine restaurants.

Please note: Italian museums are closed on Mondays. Vatican museums are closed on Sundays.

Independent exploration of Rome

Continue your independent exploration of Rome today. Perhaps you’ll tour Rome’s famous Catacombs, located in tunnels carved out of rock along the Via Appia (Appian Way). Or spend an idyllic afternoon in the gardens of the Villa Borghese, one of Europe’s most elegant parks. For dinner, you might sample one of the lively trattorias in the Trastevere district. Then, perhaps enjoy a nightcap in the gorgeous Piazza Navona. And by all means, do as the Romans do—sip espresso, savor Italian wine and take the time to enjoy la dolce vita.
