Rome

— 2 nights

Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
On the 18th (Sat), take in the awesome beauty at Colle Aventino, don't miss a visit to Ancient Rome, then pause for some photo ops at Trajan's Column, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Monte Pincio. Here are some ideas for day two: slough off your stress at Turkish baths and then glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Rome trip builder website.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Rome is an approximately 9-hour flight. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Dubai to Rome due to the time zone difference. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Dubai in September, with highs in Rome at 32°C and lows at 18°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) so you can travel to Capri.
