7 or 10 days
Rome, Sorrento Region
Rome was once the centre of the entire Western world, and history is everywhere. It’s in the stands of the Colosseum, which held 10,000 spectators; it’s among the ruins of the ancient Forum, where Julius Caesar delivered many of his great speeches; it’s in the Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo transformed the ceiling into one of the world’s true artistic masterpieces.
