Your inner history buff will appreciate Colosseum and Church of St. Louis of the French. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like St. Peter's Basilica and Vatican Museums. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza Navona, look for gifts at Officine Creative Roma, stop by Trastevere, and take a stroll through Via Condotti.

To find maps, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Rome online sightseeing planner.
