Rome (Roma), the ‘Eternal City’, is the capital and largest city of Italy and of the Lazio (Latium) region.

With wonderful palaces, millenium-old churches and basilicas, grand romantic ruins, opulent monuments, ornate statues and graceful fountains, Rome has an immensely rich historical heritage and cosmopolitan atmosphere, making it one of Europe’s and the world’s most visited, famous, influential and beautiful capitals. Today, Rome has a growing nightlife scene and is also seen as a shopping heaven, being regarded as one of the fashion capitals of the world (some of Italy’s oldest jewellery and clothing establishments were founded in the city).
Visit the Vatican, Trevi fountain, the Pantheon, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Forum of Augustus, the Forum and Markets of Trajan, the Capitoline and its museums, the Villa Borghese, the Spanish Steps, and the elegant neighborhoods of Parioli and Salario. Situated on the River Tiber, between the Apennine Mountains and the Tyrrhenian Sea, Rome is covered by two airports: Leonardo da Vinci/Fiumicino International Airport and Ciampino International Airport.
