Rome Post Trip
Detailed ItineraryDay 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.
