Rome, by far one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world, needs no introduction. Caput Mundi during the Roman Empire, once the centre of the entire Western world, is like a living museum and it’s still an inexhaustible source of fascination that emanates from every corner: Colosseum, which held 10,000 spectators; the ruins of the ancient Forum, where Julius Caesar delivered many of his great speeches, the museums, the Vatican City, the squares of unparalleled beauty, the atmosphere in the streets of downtown with the noise, the steady stream of people, sounds and smells.

Known as the "Eternal City," Rome is the capital of Italy, with an uninterrupted history spanning two and a half thousand years. As one of the founding cities of western civilization, Rome is one of the greatest centres of the Classical, Renaissance, and Baroque art.
