Rome gives you opportunity to see the most fascinating sites in Europe, merged into history, art and culture. With all of the things to do in the Eternal City, it may be hard to know where to start from.

As with most tourist destinations, it is always a good idea to start by visiting some of the famous museums and art venues.
