Rome
closeNo 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
Vatican Museums, Rome
This museum complex houses one of the world's most important collections brought together by popes over a period of four centuries, with the Sistine Chapel as its largest crowd puller.
Forum Romanum, Rome
As the de facto heart of Ancient Rome, the Forum boasted plenty of temples, arches and basilicas. Most are now reduced to rubble but with some imagination you can see the Roman Empire come back to life.
Pantheon, Rome
The Pantheon was built in 118 AD by Emperor Hadrian as a temple for all pagan gods. The building's immense dome was the largest dome in the world for more than thirteen centuries.
Trevi Fountain, Rome
Rome's most spectacular fountain is the Fontana del Trevi or Trevi Fountain. The large 18th century fountain occupies a small square which is usually packed with tourists.
