Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Rome is known for historic sites, nightlife, museums, classes, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the ancient world of Colosseum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Pantheon, browse the exhibits of Vatican Museums, and steep yourself in history at St. Peter's Basilica.

To see photos, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, read our Rome online journey planner .

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Rome is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Ho Chi Minh City to Rome due to the time zone difference. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Ho Chi Minh City in December, with highs in Rome at 16°C and lows at 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) to allow time to take a train to Pompeii.
