Product Description

Rome is magnificent and brutal at the same time. Utterly chaotic, it is also Italy's political capital, and presents a splendid array of Western civilization. As you peel through its fascinating and jumbled layers, you'll find Rome's buildings, cats, laundry, traffic, and 2.6 million people endlessly entertaining.

And then, of course, there are its magnificent sights. Tour St. Peter's, the greatest church on earth, and scale Michelangelo's 328-foot-tall dome, the world's largest. Learn something about eternity by touring the huge Vatican Museum. Take an early evening "Dolce Vita Stroll" down the Via del Corso with Rome's beautiful people, and enjoy an after-dark walk from Campo de' Fiori to the Spanish Steps, lacing together Rome's Baroque and bubbly nightspots.
