Rome is the capital of Italy, with a population of 2,700,000. Legends say that when the twins Romulus and Remus, sons of Roman god Mars, were deserted by their stepfather to starve, a she-wolf found them and nurtured them, until they were old enough to walk. As they were growing up and after they discovered the truth about their family, they seized power and decided to found a city. As history often has twists and turns, Romulus murdered Remus and founded a city named Rome.
Rome is as diverse as its own history. If you travel to Rome, you’ll have the chance to see the ruins of ancient Rome, the power of Catholic Rome in the Vatican, remnants of Renaissance Rome in Michaelangelo and Raffaelo’s works and all the other levels that make Rome what it is. At the same time, modern Rome is here, alive and kicking, full of fashion and shopping choices, restaurants and top class cuisine, cafes and youth. Travel to Rome and you’ll never regret or forget it!
Rome’s international airport (Fiumicino-Aeroporto Internazionale Leonardo da Vinci) is located 35 kilometres northwest of the city centre and is served by railway and frequent buses.

You can start your day in Rome with one very powerful experience.
- The Colosseum is Rome’s most fascinating monument, due to both its colossal architecture and the history that follows it. The Colosseum’s arena has seen countless battles, gladiators, deaths and unequal battles between prisoners and lions, all to the satisfaction of the high roman society and the poor audience.
Built in 80 B.C., during the Middle Ages it was converted to a fortress, while the years that followed endured many earthquakes, fires and damage. Nonetheless, it still is, after so many centuries, a top site of high touristic, cultural and historic importance.
- The Pantheon is one more great attraction with history spanning over 2,000 ago. You’re looking at the best preserved roman monument in Italy and, until the 15th century, the largest temple in the world. It was built in 120 B.C. as an Olympian temple and later on it was converted to a Christian church.
From there, you can easily reach Piazza Navona. This marvelous square houses many famous baroque palaces, beautiful fountains with artwork by Bernini and a vast variety of small cafes, where you can enjoy a shot (or two) of an authentic espresso.
Continue to St Mark's Basilica (Basilica di San Marco), standing adjacent to the Piazza San Marco. Probably the most beautiful church in Rome, it lies just a 15 minute walk from the Vatican. Now, cameras ready, prepare to flash! You are about to watch something special!
The Vatican museum complex is enormous, including two palaces, two galleries and lots of alleys!Walk until Piazza di Spagna and sit at the famous Spanish Steps (Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti), staring lazily at the people passing by – do it local style! .
You cannot leave Rome without paying a visit to the Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi). Poseidon and his sea warriors and other water deities, half fish half human, are there to welcome you – and hundreds of tourists like you. .
According to the tradition, if you turn your back on the fountain, make a wish and throw a coin in, your wish is to be fulfilled! Is it true? Who knows! Why don’t you give it a try? .
The official language is Italian. You can also speak English, but don’t expect too much, apart from the basics.
