Piazza Navona, Rome, Italy
Do: Visit the Pantheon This architecural wonder was first built two millenia ago, and is remarkably still in use -- allowing visitors to tangibly experience the ancient world. Once a temple to Roman gods, the building now serves as a tomb, a museum, and a Catholic church. Its unreinforcede concrete dome is still one of the largest in the world. Stay:The St. George The St. George is a luxury boutique hotel in a fabulous location: on a cobblestone street in Old Rome, within walking distance of the Pantheon and other popular sights. The hotel is certainly luxurious -- sophisticated rooms have warm beige decor and modern amenities, and the small spa is sleek, with a tranquil Turkish bath.
