Located in the Central western part of the Italian peninsula, Rome is known to be an "Eternal City" that houses the most renowned works of history, art and architecture. The Vatican City located in the centre of Rome is a holy city centre for Christianity.
Rome is well-known for its Colosseum which served as the ancient world’s largest standing amphitheatre, the Roman Forum, and vast city of Classical buildings. But the city's reputation extends beyond its storied past; it is also home to the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, delicious cuisine, beautiful parks, world-class artwork, and thriving film industry. Modern Rome has more than 900 churches and 280 fountains that you can explore. The roman pizza, pizza al taglio is a must-try for all pizza lovers.
You can also explore the nearest destinations like Naples, Cinque Terre, Milan, Bologna, Venice, Tuscany and Pisa, all of which are easy to visit from Rome.
