Should you take a day trip to Pompeii from Rome? This post helps you decide whether you want to do a DIY day trip to Pompeii or take a guided group tour.
Bomarzo's Parco dei Mostri is a park filled with fantastical sculptures of animals, monsters, and other beasts. It's an ideal day trip from Rome.
