The ancients were right! Rome is the Eternal City and its 3,000-year heritage is evident on every street of this historic and cultural masterpiece where modern life blends with the antiquities of a lost empire. By member request, we've chosen accommodations at the Hotel Medici (an elegant 19th-century building)—just a short walk from Rome's Villa Borghese Park and Porta Pia, an area full of local restaurants. While our independent programs are designed for you to experience Rome on your own, we have a few suggestions! Don't miss the Borghese Museum—the art, the gardens and the building are extravagantly beautiful. Head to the Campo dei Fiori outdoor market at Piazza Navona—buy your wine, bread, cheese and enjoy a picnic as you people watch. We've included "jump-the-line" tickets for the Vatican Museum. (Tip: mail your postcards from inside Vatican City for the unique stamps and postmark.) The weather in November is perfect for sightseeing and you're likely to encounter more Romans than tourists! You'll also discover that the historic treasures of this immense open-air museum go hand-in-hand with Rome's more tangible pleasures—legendary cuisine, cutting-edge fashion and shopping!
