If it’s not on your ‘go-to’ list of places, we suggest adding it right away. Rome, also known as ‘Caput Mundi’ or ‘The Eternal City,’ deserves to be visited at least once in your life. But that will never be enough, because the Italian capital is like a Matryoshka doll, a whole set of nesting histories so that the digger you deep, the more you find. The story of Rome runs far back into the mists of myth and legend, from Romulus and Remus, children of the god Mars, the she-wolf, the seven hills, on to the Ancient Roman Empire, through to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the glories of the Baroque, and on to the architecture of today. Glory and conquest, construction and reconstruction, in a constant alternation that has left a lively city in which infinite levels of history blend effortlessly with the present. As a result, Rome is a treasure-box of art, culture and monuments, along with countless contemporary venues in a setting that never fails to leave a lasting impression on visitors.
The list of highlights is huge. The Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre in the world, since 2007 on the list of the ‘Seven Marvels of the Modern World,’ and then Domus Aurea, the Basilica of San Giovanni, Piazza del Campidoglio, the Forum, St. Peter’s, the Vatican Museums and the Capitoline Museums, but there are many more, including beautiful squares such as Piazza Navona and Piazza del Popolo. One of visitors’ favourites is Piazza di Spagna, at the foot of the monumental staircase Trinità dei Monti. Another classic location is the Fountain of Trevi, famous both for its incredible beauty and for the memorable scene in Federico Fellini’s film La Dolce Vita starring Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni.
