Today you will arrive Rome .On arrival you will be proceed from airport to Hotel. Overnight in Rome. It's hard to say what you'll find most breathtaking about the Eternal City - the arrogant opulence of the Vatican, the timelessness of the Forum, the top speed of a Fiat Bambino, the gory resonance of the Colosseum, trying to cross a major intersection, or the bill for your café latté. Make like the locals and souse your senses in the glut of pleasures the city has to offer, from the grandiose thrill of feeling centuries of turbulent history under your feet to the small but potent intoxication of eating chestnut gelati on a hot day. Rome is halfway down Italy's western coast, about 20km (12mi) inland. It's a vast city, but the historic center is quite small. Most of the major sights are within a reasonable distance of the central railway station, Stazione Termini. It is, for instance, possible to walk from the Colosseum, through the Forum, up to Piazza di Spagna and across to the Vatican in one day, but you wouldn't really want to. All the major monuments are west of the train station, but make sure you use a map. While it can be enjoyable to get off the beaten track in Rome, it can also be very frustrating and time-consuming. The Palatine Hill and the Forum are the center of ancient Rome. Via del Corso runs north from the Forum to Piazza del Popolo, with the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain just to its east. The Vatican is northwest of the Forum, across the River Tiber. Sightseeing in Rome is exhilarating and exhausting. That it wasn't built in a day is quickly evident when you start exploring the temples, residences, basilicas, churches, palazzi, Piazzi, parks, museums and fountains. All this and the Vatican too! Don’t feel bad if you find that Rome's shop windows are competing with its monuments for your attention: it happens to everyone. Whether it's designer clothing, jewellery, books, home wares or antiques, chances are you'll find something that just has to be bought. You don't have to look far to be entertained in Rome. Opera or soccer, dance or drinking - the Eternal City has it all. Romans don't drink a lot, but there's a bar and club scene catering to those who do, or those who just like getting dressed up; bars are mainly in the historic center, Trastevere and Testaccio.OPTIONAL TOURS: A) Rome:

Tour Description: Surround yourself with castles and medieval villages as you travel along the Romantic Road during a full day escorted tour from Munich to Harburg and Rothenburg. There's plenty of free time at each stop, so there's plenty of time for lunch and exploring at your own leisurely pace.
Your first stop is Harburg, one of the oldest, largest and best preserved castles of Southern Germany. It was an important military stronghold during the 11th and 12th centuries. Through the Swabian crater landscape passing Dinkelsbuhl, you will arrive in Rothenburg, the most perfectly preserved medieval town in Europe. You will spend about 3 hours in Rothenburg, so there is plenty of time for sightseeing, lunch and shopping. A popular attraction is the Kathe Wolhfahrt Christmas Store on Herrngasse, a large store open year round where you can purchase ornaments, nutcrackers, and other Christmas items. Many of the highlights in Rothenburg are centered around Marktplatz, such as the Town Hall with its Rothenburg History Museum, and St Jakob's Church, a Gothic building with soaring ceilings filled with light. You will return to Munich via the Hallertau, the world's largest hop-growing area.
After breakfast, check out of hotel and proceed to airport for your flight back home.
