You've now added Walks of Italy to your itinerary. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Colosseum and Trevi Fountain. Get some cultural insight at Pantheon and Cupola di San Pietro. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rome: Orvieto (Ceramiche Giacomini, Duomo di Orvieto, &more). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica Papale San Paolo fuori le Mura, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Clement Basilica, explore the ancient world of Palatine Hill, and get to know the fascinating history of Piazza Navona.

To find photos, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Rome itinerary planner.

Cairo, Egypt to Rome is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Cairo to Rome. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Cairo in October; daily highs in Rome reach 26°C and lows reach 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Venice.
