More about Rome:


Rome, capital of Italy, is crossed by the Tiber River and it is the only city in the world that has within it a whole country: the Vatican enclave, where the Pope lives, is considered the smallest country in the world. That’s why the city hosts many religious tours. The history of Rome spans over twenty-five thousand years, the most visited Italian city was founded in 753 BC. Its historic center is listed by UNESCO a World Heritage Site, with monuments and museums, such as the Vatican Museum and the Colosseum, two of the most visited tourist destinations in the world. Centuries of history have made the city knows as The Eternal City, but it is also known for its chaotic traffic, art, culture, and cuisine. The nightlife of Rome is very lively with numerous bars, nightclubs, trattorias, hundreds of pizzerias and gelaterias around the city. Those who visit Rome always want to come back to the city soon!
