Few cities can rival Rome’s astonishing artistic heritage.
Rome literally is the ultimate place to visit in Italy, and it is only fair that it receives the amount of attention it gets from tourists. It’s a fantastic city; a perfect mixture of historic and archeological sites, beautiful churches, museums and art galleries, lively vibe, delicious food and fun nightlife.
They don’t call Rome ‘The Eternal City’ for nothing – the Italian capital is one of the oldest continuously inhabited sites in Europe. Ancient icons such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Pantheon recall the city’s golden age as caput mundi.
Then there was the Renaissance, making today’s Rome a global city known for its art and architecture. St Peter’s Basilica towers over the Vatican, testifying to the ambition of Rome’s Renaissance popes.
Stroll through the centre and you’ll come across masterpieces by the titans of European art. Here and there you meet sculptures by Michelangelo, paintings by Caravaggio, frescoes by Raphael and fountains by Bernini.
There’s so much to do in Rome that you could easily spend months there without getting bored.
