Rome

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Colosseum and Piazza Navona. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Church of St. Louis of the French and Officine Creative Roma. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Vatican Museums, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Peter's Basilica, take a stroll through Via Condotti, and stop by Trastevere.

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

Cairo, Egypt to Rome is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Cairo to Rome, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Cairo in April, things will get little chillier in Rome: highs are around °C and lows about °C. On the 8th (Mon), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Florence.
