Rome

Rome ©
Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like St. Peter's Square and Arcibasilica di San Giovanni in Laterano. Visit Colosseum and Piazza Navona for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rome: Castello di Torre Alfina (in Torre Alfina), Castello Orsini-Odescalchi (in Bracciano) and Orvieto (Orvieto Underground, Duomo di Orvieto, &more). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St. Louis of the French, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Baldacchino di San Pietro, di Bernini, steep yourself in history at Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, and don't miss a visit to St. Peter's Basilica.

To plan Rome vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Sydney, Australia to Rome is an approximately 25-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) to Central European Standard Time (CET) is minus 9 hours. In July, Rome is much warmer than Sydney - with highs of 37°C and lows of 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Fri) so you can catch the train to Pompeii.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Pompeii: Amalfi (Cimitero Monumentale, Duomo di Sant'Andrea, &more), Agropoli (Castello Aragonese & Borgo Medievale di Agropoli) and Paestum Ruins (in Paestum).
