Rome – A city of staggering history and beauty. Check out its best sights in our travel video and start planning a trip of your own so you can become a part of the story.

When ready, browse vacation packages to Rome:

#Rome, the former Caput Mundi, or Capital of the World, sits beneath Palatine Hill, where the ruins of its original incarnation are open for exploration.

No #vacation is complete without stopping by the remains of the Temple of Saturn and Arch of Septimus, both located in the Roman Forum. Stop by the Colosseum, a relic of Roman bloodsports and perhaps the most recognizable element of the city.

Toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain to ensure you’ll return to Rome one day; don’t toss in two coins unless you’re ready to fall in love with a Roman.

Continue your Rome #sightseeing in St. Peter’s Square, home of St. Peter’s Basilica. The world’s largest church, designed by Michelangelo, is both a remarkable structure and a tribute to faith. After this, it’s just a few steps to restaurants filled with Italian food. Forget coming back to Rome – you’ll never want to leave.

For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.
