Nicknamed 'The Eternal City' and regarded as the first ever metropolis, Rome has a multitude of things to see, do and explore, and you'll be at the center of it during your stay in a four-star hotel. Rome's city center is also known as the historic center, and was once the capital of the Western world. This was an ancient megacity of architectural splendor and engineering accomplishments that today encompasses most of Rome's famous attractions, including the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, charming piazzas and churches.

Upon entering the Vatican, you'll see the spellbinding Sistine Chapel and the most important collections of art in the world, as well as the Basilica of St. Peter.

Pilgrims have been coming to Assisi, Italy since the 13th century to venerate Saint Francis, who was born and buried there. Framed by the long, undulating hills of Umbria and the forests of Monte Subasio, Assisi is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in the world and one of Italy's most spell-binding gems. The entire town is also a UNESCO World Heritage site, and basks in this coveted status because of its plethora of art and historically significant buildings, like the Basilica di San Francesco, which you'll visit on your tour, in addition to the Cripta di San Francesco, the monumental tomb of Saint Francis of Assisi.
