Rome — 7 nights

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Cascata delle Marmore and Church of St. Louis of the French. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Colosseum, ponder the design of Trevi Fountain, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Peter's Basilica, and stop by Trastevere.

Plan my Rome trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Alexandria, Egypt to Rome is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Eastern European Standard Time (EET) to Central European Standard Time (CET) is minus 1 hour. Traveling from Alexandria in May, things will get slightly colder in Rome: highs are around 28°C and lows about 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Tue) early enough to fly to Venice.
