In brief: Spinning
A good way to think of it is that dizziness is when you feel as if you are spinning in a room. Vertigo is when you feel as if the room is spinning around you.

In brief: A symptom
Vertigo is defined as the sensation of motion where there is no motion.
It is a symptom of a problem with the inner ear. Some people with vertigo experience the sensation of spinning. But the symptoms can be the feeling of rocking or things moving in front of you or the feeling that you are moving.
