Rome — 1 night

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 28th (Wed), explore the world behind art at Vatican Museums and then don't miss a visit to Spanish Steps. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the local landmark of Trevi Fountain, delve into the distant past at Pantheon, don't miss a visit to Piazza Navona, then contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, then take in panoramic vistas at Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo, and finally delve into the distant past at Colosseum.

To plan Rome vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Amman, Jordan to Rome is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Amman to Rome due to the time zone difference. In September, Rome is a bit cooler than Amman - with highs of 32°C and lows of 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) to allow time to drive to Positano.
