The capital of Italy is probably the most visited city in the world. Whilst, arguably, for the Italians Rome is primarily the political centre of the nation, for others it is its wealth of architectural and artistic treasures which makes it a truly remarkable and unforgettable city. The numerous museums, monuments, and churches – not to mention the archeological sites – represent a cultural heritage so vast that a whole lifetime would not be sufficient to explore it in its entirety.
Rome, once the capital of the most powerful empire of the ancient western world, has retained its impressive cultural, historical, and artistic importance and is still, centuries later, an important protagonist on the world scene.
Every Piazza, street, and alleyway records the history of Rome’s glorious past, which is, however, only a part of the city?s charm. Rome should also be experienced via the old quarters of Testaccio and Trastevere, where one savours the warmth of the people and the real, authentic soul of the eternal city.
