Rome is the capital of Italy, and its largest city. The mixture of the modern city and the plethora of monuments, piazzas, villas, museums, churches, Egyptian obelisks, along with the Colosseum, the Forum and Vatican City results in an epic, glorious ambience that will have you hooked and anticipating your next visit.

The early history of Rome is legendary. According to tradition, the city was founded by Romulus, the twin of Remus. The twins decided to build a city, but in an argument Romulus killed Remus and established the city and named it after himself.

Rome is synonymous with history. Where else can you walk in the same footsteps as the Caesars, St Peter, the Popes, Michelangelo, Dante, Raphael to name but a few? Rome also served as the capital city of the Roman Kingdom, the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire.

The “Eternal City” of Rome is the largest open-air museum in all of Europe with dozens of must-see, photogenic sites. Major attractions in the City Center are shown on the metro map above.

Pantheon, RomeThe real charm of Rome is that you can easily walk to most sites. For example, after a mid-morning tour of the impressive Pantheon, one could stroll through Piazza Navona, enjoy a gelato in Campo De Fiori, then walk across the historic Ponte Sisto Bridge into Trastevere – Rome’s oldest neighborhood – for an enjoyable lunch. Total miles walked? Less than three!

From Trastevere, it’s only a 20-minute walk along the Tiber to the Vatican. After a tour of Saint Peter’s Basilica, another short walk to Castel St. Angelo, where the best views of Rome are found atop that impressive castle.

As you can see, Rome is a walkable city, and by walking you get a real feel for the ambiance of Rome and the Italian way of life. Good, free walking maps are available all over the city, so hit the cobblestones.

Italy was certainly influenced by many powerful cultures and political forces over time, including the Byzantines, Etruscans and Greeks, but it was the world-changing impact of both the Roman civilization and the Italian Renaissance that contributed most-significantly to its status in the modern world.

Roma, capitale d’Italia, è considerata una delle più belle città del mondo. Il suo centro storico, insieme alle proprietà extraterritoriali della Santa Sede dentro la città e alla Basilica di San Paolo Fuori le Mura, è tra i 51 siti italiani inseriti dall’Unesco nella World Heritage List.

Il centro storico, racchiuso all’interno delle mura aureliane (a sinistra del Tevere) e delle mura gianicolensi (a destra del fiume), comprende ben 25.000 punti di interesse ambientale e archeologico.

La leggenda vuole che a fondare Roma furono nel 753 a.C due fratelli, Romolo e Remo, allattati dalla famosa Lupa, divenuta ormai simbolo iconografico della Capitale, assieme a uno dei suoi monumenti più importanti: il Colosseo. Ma è la storia che ha fatto grande Roma: prima centro della Repubblica Romana, poi fulcro della vita politica e culturale dell’Impero, e, nel IV sec., capitale del mondo cristiano.

Il sito del Patrimonio Mondiale, esteso nel 1990 alle mura di Urbano VIII, comprende alcuni dei monumenti più importanti dell’antichità, tra i quali spiccano i Fori Imperiali. Poco distanti, sul colle Aventino, troviamo due capolavori, sede degli svaghi della gens romana: Le terme di Caracalla (212-217), tra i più grandiosi esempi di bagni pubblici, e il Circo Massimo, dedicato alle corse delle bighe.

Spostandosi a Nord lungo il Tevere si incontra il Mausoleo di Augusto, imponente monumento funerario voluto dall’imperatore Augusto nel 29 a.C. al suo ritorno da Alessandria, che ricorda la tomba di Alessandro Magno. Altro famoso mausoleo è quello di Adriano, su cui si innalza Castel Sant’Angelo. Radicalmente modificato in epoca medioevale e rinascimentale, è collegato alla città dello Stato del Vaticano da un corridoio fortificato, il passetto di borgo.
