Rome

This description page of Rome, in the Italian region of Lazio, will guide you in planning your trip to Italy and help you find useful travel information about this Italian city.

 

Rome (Roma), the eternal city, is literally eternal. It has endured for over 2,700 years, with an ambiance like no other. Embedded in centuries of history and culture, it is Italy's capital and largest city, offering far too much to see in one visit. In this city a phenomenal concentration of history, legend, and monuments coexists with an equally phenomenal concentration of people busily going about their everyday life.

Here the ancient world is integrated with the modern. The Roman Forum and the Pantheon rub shoulders with Baroque palazzos, and Renaissance villas sit alongside the modernism of Mussolini's redesign of the capital, and you can drive along a busy Roman street and see the Coliseum rearing up in front of you.

Rome (Roma) means history: Etruscan tombs, Republican meeting rooms, imperial temples, early Christian churches, medieval bell towers, Renaissance palaces, and baroque basilicas. As you stroll through this remarkable city you are walking in the footsteps of the Caesars, St. Peter, Charlemagne, the Popes, and Michelangelo!

 

And amidst all this history, a modern city lives, breathes, and buzzes with life. Rome boasts terrific restaurants, pizzerias, trattorias, bars, and clubs. See the art and architecture of the ages, shop for the latest fashions, or sit in a sidewalk cafe' and drink in the atmosphere. There are chic designer stores, traditional street markets and, blessedly unchanged areas such as Trastevere, where you can do as the natives do, visit the old shops and trattorias popular with the locals.

 

What to see? Rome is a city that will keep you busy and entertained at all times. For those who are interested in art, music, history, and religion, there are few cities in the world that offer more. You could spend a year in Rome and not see everything, but there are some sights you don't want to miss. The Pantheon is the most complete remnant of ancient Rome, and the Coliseum is probably the most recognizable. The Forum was at the center of ancient Rome and therefore the hub of the Mediterranean world.

Rome boasts over 900 churches; however, if you were to only visit one, spend a day at the Vatican. Not only is a visit to the Vatican a spiritual pilgrimage, its museums house the largest and most diverse collection of art and sculpture on the planet. St. Peter's Cathedral is one of the largest and most ornately decorated cathedrals found anywhere in the world. In and around this exquisitely decorated church, you will finds works of art from Renaissance Masters such as Michelangelo, Bernini, and Raphael.

 

Visit the Piazza Navona, the most beautiful square in the capital, and the Capitoline Museums, home to some of Roma's best ancient art and sculpture. Renaissance buildings cluster around the historic center between the Via del Corso and the River Tiber. And, of course, you'll want to visit Trevi Fountain (where a coin and a wish will ensure your eventual return to the city) and the Spanish Steps.

 

It's hard to say what yuo'll find most breathtaking about the eternal city?The opulence of the Vatican, the timelessness of the Forum, the top speed of a Fiat Cinquecento, or the millions of cats in the Coliseum. Whatever your interests are, Rome has something special for you.
