No city in the world equals the history of the Eternal City. Founded 2700 years ago, Rome long reigned as Caput Mundi, or Capital of the World.
Monumental buildings such as the Colosseum are reminiscent of the era when emperors like Nero and Trajan ruled the Roman Empire.
But today's Rome owes much of its attractiveness to the Renaissance period when new squares such as the Piazza del Campidoglio were created and new buildings were constructed including the world's largest church, the Saint Peter's Basilica.
Random Rome Highlights
Piazza del Campidoglio is a central square in Rome, laid out after designs by Michelangelo. The Renaissance facades of the surrounding buildings were also designed by the Italian master.
The Arch of Titus is one of two remaining arches on the Forum Romanum. It was built between 81 and 85 AD to commemorate the capture of Jerusalem over the Jewish Zealots.
The most famous building of the Roman Empire is probably the Colosseum. The building accommodated more than 55,000 spectators and was home to many games featuring gladiators and wild animals.
