Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Start off your visit on the 15th (Thu): explore the ancient world of Colosseum, explore the ancient world of Palatine Hill, then get to know the fascinating history of Piazza Navona, and finally don't miss a visit to St. Peter's Basilica. Keep things going the next day: admire the landmark architecture of Pantheon, then admire the masterpieces at Vatican Museums, then look for gifts at Antica Caciara Trasteverina, and finally don't miss a visit to Trevi Fountain.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, read Rome itinerary planning website.

New Delhi, India to Rome is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from India Standard Time (IST) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a -4.5 hour difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from New Delhi in December, with highs in Rome at 16°C and lows at 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Montalcino.

City of Romance

Virtually unchanged for the last six centuries, Venice is actually a group of islands made famous by a series of canals, bridges, monuments, piazzas, and narrow pedestrian lanes.
